TAIWANESE GADGET MAKER Asus has announced an update for its Transformer Prime owners to fix graphics bugs.

The Transformer Prime is set to be one of the most popular tablets of the year but has been hit by a couple of initial flaws. Users will get an over the air update starting today to fix a problem with its graphics.

Asus said on Facebook, "ICS 4.0 FOTA update for Transformer Prime TF201 from today (UK) will fix on-screen graphics bugs (previously some horizontal stripes and signal noise during video playback & pad rotation)."

Unfortunately this doesn't solve a problem with the device's GPS caused by the metallic material used for the case. Asus has removed it from the specifications sheet.

Earlier this week Asus confirmed a problem with the Transformer Prime WiFi hardware, but luckily this is one bug that doesn't affect units in Blighty. It has offered users unhappy with the problems a full refund or an extension of their warranty. µ
