Innovation is a lot like love, everyone knows when it happens, but nobody really knows what it is - Dean 'Mr Segway' Kamen
TAIWANESE HARDWARE VENDOR Asus has confirmed its Transformer Prime is suffering from random system reboots.
The Transformer Prime has had a couple of problems since its launch. The latest is annoying users with unexpected reboots but Asus is rolling out an update to resolve the issue.
Asus said on Twitter:
New FOTA update is rolling out for the #TF201 Pime. Fixes the random reboot problem. Have you got yours yet?— ASUS (UK) (@AsusUK) February 9, 2012
Previous problems have included poor GPS signal acquisition and also stock shortages following huge demand. However, we've had a Transformer Prime in The INQUIRER office for a few days and have not had any unexpected reboots.
The response from users on Twitter has mostly been users asking when the upgrade to Android 4.0 ICS will come for the original Transformer TF101. Asus has replied saying that it's in testing and still scheduled for release this month.
Asus has also taken to Facebook to announce that stock is "still landing weekly and in increasing numbers".
"The majority of our resellers have now fulfilled their back orders so more free stock should be available soon," it added.
The company has repeatedly denied that the Ipad 2 rival has hardware problems, and recently shot down online retailer Clove's claim that it received faulty Transformer Prime units that had WiFi problems. µ
