Despite the fact that ASUS’ quad-core tablet, the Transformer Prime, seems to be suffering from plenty of issues in the last few weeks, or since its launch even, it’s still one of the most sought-after tablets out there. We’ve heard about the GPS-based issues since launch, and while ASUS tried to fix the issue with a software update, it doesn’t look like everything turned out all that well. And now, after the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it looks like plenty of users out there are experiencing even more issues.
Found over on the XDA-developer forums for the tablet, it looks like users are reporting random reboots to their tablets. It looks like it isn’t tied to an app, or even multiple applications, but is entirely random. Though, some users are noting it seems to happen more frequently when the tablet is running in Higher Performance Mode. Additionally, some owners are experiencing some graphical issues, as well as video playback glitches. Some owners are saying they’ve sent their devices into ASUS, but a shortage in stock is causing a delay in return.
Gary Key is reportedly an employee of ASUS, and has been tackling the forum to the best of his ability, saying that ASUS is working on a software fix for the issues named. Key says that the problem is coming from incompatibilities within Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and some drivers. Apparently the latest GPS fix sent out to the tablet was also meant to fix some graphics driver problems, but not all of them were addressed. Key also says that the update to fix these new reports is meant to be issued in early February, but no exact date was provided.
