Asus says 'awesome' new firmware coming to Transformer Prime
Asus has revealed another update will hit the Transformer Prime soon with new features
Asus has piped up on Facebook about the next firmware update for its popular Transformer Prime Android tablet.
The Prime launched with Android Honeycomb 3.2 at the end of last year and has already seen one update to the latest Google build, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0 in January 2012.
This gave a significant performance boost to the already impressively snappy device as well as plenty of new features and functionality.
Now Asus is promising another update.
The company's official Facebook post reads: ‘Awesome new features coming in the next Transformer Prime firmware update. Stay tuned!'
Of course, the company hasn't gone into any further detail about what those new features actually are. We've got in touch with Asus to find out more and will report back if and when we hear anything.
In related news, regular readers may remember that shortly after release of the Prime, toy manufacturer and owner of the shape-changing robot Transformers trademark, Hasbro, filed a lawsuit against Asus alleging misuse of its intellectual property.
Interestingly enough, Techcrunch reports that a US Judge has ruled in Asus' favour for the case, stating that consumers would be unlikely, in his view, to confuse the tablet with Hasbro's products.
The case is still ongoing though, at this stage the Judge's ruling simply means Asus doesn't have to pull the Prime from store shelves.
