ASUS Transformer getting OTA update — not ICS but brings HDMI improvements

Yes this is the original ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and not the illusive Prime we are all waiting for still. Today ASUS appears to be rolling out yet another update for the popular slate. Sadly this is not Ice Cream Sandwich but this is another quick update that shows just how committed they are to keeping on track of updates and bug fixes. I wish others were this fast but that is just wishful thinking.

We have seen more than a few updates in the recent past from ASUS including the Android 3.2 and 3.2.1 Honeycomb updates, not to mention fixes for the dock and more. Other Manufacturers like Samsung haven't been quite as speedy with updates and I'm glad to see ASUS keeping up the pace -- hopefully ICS comes next.

This update is rolling out now and users can get it from the ASUS update app or check for updates now on their own devices. Looking for a change log we don't seem to be finding much. According to sources this update will bring extended support for HDMI and HDTV's, update pre-installed applications, fix some input lag, some performance improvements and maybe even laying some groundwork for the Android 4.0 ICS update that is coming early next year.

Hit check for updates and let us know how everything goes and if you notice anything new and different.

    the good news is that the update get’s pushed out to rooted devices as well… the other side of the coin is that the new update revokes that root access :-/

    I got the update a few days ago, it hasn’t seemed to improve the lag at all, but more importantly to me, it has caused bbc iplayer to consider its self incompatible with my asus transformer. Very annoying.

    I had to manually update using the Asus web “app” again. Mine is a US version that was imported by PC World (UK) and seems to never, ever, get OTA updates.  Still, at least Asus make a way to update even.
