Like that one friend who cares enough to update everyone about a "killer party" they're headed to without saying where it is, the official ASUS Facebook page has dropped a teaser that is as tantalizing as it is frustratingly vague. The note promises "awesome new features" in the next update for its Transformer Prime
, but has absolutely no details on what that means. So what could be in store, some minor .01 revision ICS bump
, further GPS tweaks
, custom ASUS apps or some celebratory Hasbro wallpapers? Of course, we'd love to hear that everyone's getting a new higher-res display
swapped into their Tegra 3 tablet, but even with lasers and time travel still
on the table, we're thinking that's not it. Feel free to dream big in the comments below -- for the moment, anything is possible.Update
: If you need a hint, several commenters have pointed out posts on XDA Developers
by ASUS' Gary Key indicating firmware 188.8.131.52 will arrive "by March 30th" so it shouldn't be a long wait. A possible preview of the features included is also in the thread, culled from a list on the company's Swedish Facebook site for a differently numbered, though also yet to be released update. Check the list after the break or hit the links below to follow the breadcrumbs for yourself.
