Asus has Something “Awesome” in Store for the Transformer Prime

Asus is preparing yet another update for the Transformer Prime, only this time it include a set of “awesome” features. After overcoming a shaky start that involved WiFi and GPS issues, the Prime has continued to be the only Android tablet worth considering thanks to its next-gen tech including a quad-core Tegra 3 processor. So when we hear that more awesomeness is on the way, our nipples get hard (too much?) salivary glands start bubbling. What could it be? Would love to hear those guesses.

    Here is what is being updated

    • Mchl496

      none of that is awesome though

  • Kurt

    It would be awesome if they somehow make the Prime not a piece of buggy junk.

  • Guest

    I’m not sure how a tablet with bad wi-fi can possibly be considered to be the only one worth having… I mean what am I supposed to do with a tablet that cant hold a connection? Guess it’d make the nicest coaster ever…

  • jelly bean update with dual boot windows 8 all over the air update…. wifi obviously required but would make it the absolute perfect device

    • Josh Groff

       I would take a personal loan out to buy one if that was announced. Then pay it back next month. 🙂

  • BigRed4X15

    My prime is amazing, I just wish there were more than a few decent tablet apps.

  • Bionic

    A blow job port.

  • coggy9

    Hopefully it’s some kind of upgrade program if you bought(or won, like me) a Prime recently. I hear the 700 has fixed the hardware WiFi/GPS issues.

  • Klabit87

    It would be nice if they would fix the TF101’s “awesome feature” (not) of random reboots and sleep of deaths.

    • Malik

      Seriously, Asus is getting praised for updates but that’s because the original Transformer and Prime were released with alpha software AND hardware.

      • Kevin

        I really hope Asus doesn’t make the Nexus tablet. Some of the issues with both the Transformer and Prime are not fixable with software/firmware updates.

  • HiTop

    It slices, it dices, it Popiels!

  • Piotr G.

    This better be good

  • Chris Baxter

    Lost me when you said Transformer Prime.  Had this thing for a week and was SO pissed on how this thing could have been awesome; but wasn’t.  No firmware update can turn this thing into what it should have been…

    • Coming from an original droid bugless beast guy, to now toying with the galnex, I have a prime and mine is amazing. I dont have a single issue with it. Haven’t even bothered to root because it is so amazing. the original hardware must have had issues, because my month old tab has NONE.

  • Thefarmerslife

    Oh boy! Just got an email from Amazon that my Prime will arrive Saturday!

    • RadicalPie

      Congrats I want one so bad. But I am holding out for official specs for the Google Nexus tablet.

      • DanKemple

         wait for the new 700, better specs than the TF201.

    • delta echoe

      These can’t seriously still be that hard to find, I got mine back in january >.>

      • Droidzilla

        They are.

  • DrDroid

    Don’t know why the picture of the new firmware won’t attach.

  • DrDroid

     sorry new firmware didn’t attach

  • DrDroid

    I believe it is getting Optimized!

  • Bigsike

    Getting my Voodoo root keeper ready.lol

  • SueWest

    Tablet optimized apps? Actual availability?

  • Andrew Weckerly

    Hot Taiwanese models to hold your Prime while you’re not using it?

    • RadicalPie

      I am always using my “Prime”, but they can hold it anyways.

  • teejaycard

    With those girls and that background I can’t comment without offending someone or having my comment removed as offensive. So I’ll just say thank you and smile 😉 

  • akazerotime

    Ok.. ASUS we get it.. YOU are the developer device and not the XOOM. 

    • dreadnatty08

      Xoom just got 4.0.4, so kind of?

  • Lacokanostra

    Maybe the browser lag will be gone?

  • Dan

    It ACTUALLY blends?!

  • Will it be worth me breaking root? We’ll see…

  • Ken_P_619

    Every Asus can now be converted into a hoverboard.

    Young Doc:
    No! It can’t be; I just sent you back to the future!

    Marty McFly:
    No, I know; you *did* send me back to the future. But I’m back – I’m back *from* the future.

    Young Doc:
    Great Scott!

      • CORYK333

    • YeahBuddy

  • Dan

    Maybe Asus will personally push Android 4.0.5 to all Android devices. #WishfulThinking #HashtagsOnDroidLife
