Asus has been pushing a firmware update for the original Transformer tablet PCs. The update is available for those living in the US, UK, Taiwan, and Germany, while the update will also be applicable for the Transformer devices with generic WW SKU. Also, the update (version 188.8.131.52-20111216) will be available OTA and has already brought a lot of Transformer devices to the next higher level. However, the Android version remains the same and is likely to continue as such before Asus comes out with the all important update to Android ICS.
Meanwhile, what does the present update do to the Transformer tablet PCs?
It includes HDMI fix for new HDTVs, as well as updated applications, while also ensuring the entire tablet operation is more stable. Reducing input lag is another aspect that the new update focuses on.
