ViewSonic has pushed out a firmware update for the GTab, which adds Adobe Flash support among other things. The new software - available as an OTA update - also adds to the GTab's productivity abilities, as it throws USB keyboard and mouse support onto the Android slate.

There's also support for an external docking station, the addition of new international cities in the Weather app, and a few new languages supported.

The OTA update should be automatically offered in the notification area. Meanwhile, if you're more into raw speed then it's worth checking out the 1.4GHz/1.6GHz overclock we wrote about yesterday.
