One of the newest and greatest tablet out there is the ASUS Transformer Prime.  The chances are you have heard of it but never actually seen it.  That is because the quantitiy is limited and the want is plentiful.  But being the fastest and most powerful Android tablet out there does not help its name when the majority of the owners who do have one, have issues with it.

 I personally got my hands on a Transformer Prime little over a week ago.  I was more excited than ever to finally just see the quad core packing device.  As i was opening the box, I was always wondering if I would be another vitim to the many issues people are reporting.  The main three issues are malfunctions with Bluetooth, Wifi, and GPS.  ASUS has come out with the following statment addressing these users’ concerns:

“We are working on two different solutions now and hope to have a fix available in early February.”

ASUS has also come out and said that they have determined what the issues are and that they are trying to find a fix for the following:

“Stream a media source via WiFi for playback to a BT device (headphones, speakers, etc) and the signal degrades to the point where the streaming source stops and requires a reset to the BT device. This is the most common problem reported although using several BT devices (keyboard, mouse, headset) and using the Internet Browser to simply view media content has also been reported as a problem when using BT input devices.”

So with the promised update in Febraury to try to fix the many issues people are having plus the promise of an “unlock tool” for the bootloader, February looks to be an event filled month for ASUS and its’ Prime.  Stay tuned for more information about any updates to the Transformer Prime and a full review our very own Prime!
