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 188.8.131.52 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?
