New firmware update for Asus Transformer Prime coming tomorrow

by: Bams SadewoMarch 28, 2012

It was only last month that Asus rolled out an update for the Transformer Prime tablet, and now the company  is readying a new firmware update for the same tablet. As reported by The Verge, the update was confirmed by the company’s Italian Facebook page and is due to arrive tomorrow, March 29 (at least in Italy).

What improvements can you expect for the Asus Transformer Prime tomorrow?

According to the announcement, the build update will bring the long-awaited Face Unlock feature. Aside from that, you will get to control notifications directly from the screen lock. If Asus Vibe is your preferred online entertainment store, that app will receive a bump to version 2.0, with an improved layout and more content promised. Speaking of entertainment, the HDMI function of the tablet will also receive some improvement. Once you’ve applied the update, you can choose between landscape and portrait mode when connecting to an HD TV. You’ll also have the option to scale and crop the video.

That’s not all. The update will bring Ad-hoc network support and the ability to use a LAN connection on your Transformer Prime. The latter, naturally, requires an Ethernet to USB adapter.

Like a jolly Santa that keeps on giving, Asus hasn’t forgotten the rest of the Transformer tablets. The company also promises that an update for TF101 is in the cards. Still not good enough for you? How about an ICS update for the TF101G? That’s apparently coming soon as well.

Way to go, Asus. Now, how about some confirmation for that Google Nexus tablet delish that’s supposedly coming out in the next couple of months?

    Sucks that the camera still does not work anymore…along with all other apps that use the camera feature in some shape or form.

    Well this update sucks, the biggest feature of ICS that Asus has broken is still broken; IPSec XAUTH PSK. Way to go Asus, it takes real talent to break a feature that works by default in ICS and on all ICS tablets _except_ the Asus line. Asus– btw, Asus your customer service desk is staffed by a bunch of no skilled talent, you officially have a helpless desk.
