ASUS eeePad Transformer update

We know, we know. Now that the Motorola Xoom's getting Android 3.2, everybody else wants in as well. Can't blame ya. And while the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer (read our full review) appears to be in the throes of yet another OTA update, it's still showing Android 3.1 in ye olde about page.

Before anybody gets all out of whack, ASUS has said this week that Android 3.2 is in testing for the Transformer, so it'll likely be coming sooner rather than later.

Well.. I went into the new market I downloaded a few days ago and opened it. Now it looks like the phone which is a good thing. But.. then it reset lol. Also seems a bit snappier!

It seems like the tablet manufacturers are a lot quicker with updates than the phone manufacturers. The updates are coming in weeks instead of months.

Or you could own an Acer Iconia A500 on 3.0 and still wonder when they will be able to roll out 3.1 without any problems, or at all, for that matter.

It seems faster and some of the forum sites that used to always crash the browser work great now. Switching apps also seems faster.

I searched the market before the update for Netflix app and it was not there. I installed update last night and now Netflix is in the market. It doesn't work. Can somebody confirm?

Here's the changelog (from xda forums):

* Build number: 8.4.4.11-20110711
* Kernel changed.
* Upgraded Wifi driver.
* Upgraded GPS driver.
* New Tegra boot animation.
* SRS sound profile updated.
* Nvidia TegraZone app added.
* Video gallery app added (videos are now separated from the image and video gallery). (possibly US only)
* Option to hide keyboard notification popup on dock connect.
* Splashtop app updated. (not HD, yet)
* MyLibrary now shows a book count.

I have an Acer Iconia tab... with 3.1. I am in the U.S. though. Im not sure where you are but the 3.1 update has already happened. At least in the us. if youre in the us, then im not sure why you havent gotten yours yet. Might wanna manually check for it in the about tablet section.

@duvarneyn70,

This update wasn't to bring the Transformer up to 3.1. It simply improved on the current installed 3.1 firmware. So it was more of a 3.1.x update, not a 3.x update. If that makes sense?
