    I already had HC 3.1 installed, so wondering what this is. Is saying that it takes like 10 minutes. I will check when done. Anyone else getting it?

    Ok, first thing I found is that you can select not to see the warning when you do not use the default keyboard when docked.

    I got this firmware update earlier too, Apparently what has changed is.

    1. They have "Powered by Nvidia Tegra" at the bottom of the boot screen.
    2. They have added that loading dotted circle on second screen after the first boot screen under the Asus logo.
    3. They've added Google movies to our app drawer
    4. They've now added Tegra Zone to our app drawer so we no longer need to download it.

    Thats all I see for now

    This update is better then I expected it to be. Speech to text is more accurate and more video files are supported! SwiftKey x tablet is also available for our tablets. Really awesome keyboard for 2 dollars now in the market

    Another thing ive noticed with my TF is that the speakers seem louder than before. I used to use Equalizer to help improve them but now it seems better before if not fantastic with Equalizer now

    You can play almost any video file, just use the correct video application. Some of them are:
    MoboPlayer
    MVideoPlayer
    RockPlayer
    etc.

    a quick note for those who were still on 3.01, and unable to upgrade automatically, this includes that update, too.

    Nice, now the videos freeze up (to where I have to restart) if I leave it on pause too long... AWESOME... and I was just starting to love the browser crashes too...
