Asus is working hard to squash bugs, even on some of their older products. They just released a new update for the Transformer Prime TF201, that takes care of quite a few issues. The update should be rolling out now, or very soon to you. Here's a bit of the Changelog to share what has been fixed,

- Fix the issue that in ASUS Spanish(US) and ASUS Dutch(Holland) IME, some characters cannot be typed or cannot be typed correctly.

2. Gmail
- Fix the issue that "Show quoted text” in Gmail does not work in a mail thread that is with 2+ messages.

3. 3d party app
- Upgrade Polaris Office to 3.5-build 5r16148FV06.

4. Wi-Fi
- Fix the issue that TF201 cannot connect with Wi-Fi AP that has Chinese character AP name.(SSiD)

5. Screen Saver
- Fix the issue that the screen cannot resume to video playback but only audio playback after pressing power button when “Quick Launch” in Screen Saver settings is enabled.

6. Browser
- Improve web page compatibility.

Wonder if the TF101 will get anymore updates any time soon. I have issues with the notifications audio sometimes acting like it's muted when it isn't; so far the only way to temporarily fix the glitch is to reboot the tablet. It also suffers from occasional graphical glitches where the screen will flicker with aspects of the home screen and aspects of the app you're using both showing very briefly. The last update really fixed a lot but it still has a few gremlins crawling around in it.
