01/25/2012, When the ASUS Transformer Prime was released, users discovered that the bootloader of the device was locked. What this means for those unfamiliar is that customization and running tweaked software would be a near-impossible task, and it was a move that the mod-heavy Android community was definitely not a fan of.

01/17/2012, While the majority of Asus Transformer Prime owners would probably have been pleased with the Ice Cream Sandwich update on their respective tablets (which was also demonstrated recently), there is a small group of Transformer Prime owners who are left far more frustrated than before.

Also known as TF101 if you are into model numbers and the like, Asus did promise the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to Transformer owners last week, touting that it will roll out shortly after the one for the Prime (TF201), so that means any time after today (January 12th).

01/09/2012, [CES 2012] This particular post does not bode well for Amazon Kindle Fire owners, simply because it costs $50 more than your Kindle Fire and can do so much more.

This 7″ Tegra 3 (read our Tegra 3 overview for additional […]
