Folks missing out on Netflix on their Android tablets (quite a handful) will be glad to know that for Android smartphones, Netflix is gradually increasing support for the larger display-toting devices. The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is one of those devices that don’t have official support for the app, but through the sideloading of a particular build on a rooted Transformer, the app runs without a hitch.
However not everybody is tech savvy enough to root their tablets and some people just don’t want to root it regardless, and so they’ve been missing out on the goodness that is Netflix. But all hope is not loss, Netflix might be officially making its way sometime soon to the tablet. According to the Asus website, the Transformer will be getting the Android 3.2 update soon (ETA unconfirmed), which should hopefully let the company load the app onto the tablet. After all, it does list “Netflix” under the Special APP section of the specs page. We’ll have to keep our fingers crossed and just wait and see.Related articles:
