ASUS Transformer Pad 300 gets updated again; firmware update focuses on the camera
Last month, ASUS sent out an update to owners of the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 that added stability to the tablet while improving the camera and Wi-Fi connectivity. Apparently, the update didn't do the job because the manufacturer is back with another update just a few weeks later that focuses on the camera (pun intended) and Wi-Fi once again.

Software version comes with updated camera firmware which should help you take more colorful pictures, improve autofocus and continuous autofocus and the white balance. The pre-installed Chrome browser will be more stable after the update, and a bug that was affecting Wi-Fi performance should also be repaired. When the tablet was coming out of standby mode, sometimes it would be unable to get Wi-Fi reconnected.

Hopefully the second time will be the charm and this will be the last time that ASUS has to tweak the camera and Wi-Fi. The new update is supposed to install within just a few minutes. You can check to see if the update is on your tablet by going to Settings > About > System Firmware Update and then press Check Update. If you own the ASUS Transformer Pad 300, let us know if you notice the improvements in the camera and in Wi-Fi connectivity by typing your comments in the box below.

Love Asus for adding features and correcting problems. Unlike other companies who just let everyone complain and ignore problems. And there will be problems on any device. I have the original Transformer and have been very satisfied with Asus.

This is just convincing me more and more to get the T-Pad Infinity and the keyboard dock on the day of its alleged launch: June 25th. By the way, SuperAndroidEvo, I tested the Prime the other day at Best Buy, and the keyboard was a bit small. Did you get used to it easily?

It's like a Ultra Book. I like the keyboard, it works very well. When you use a keyboard a lot you do get used to it. When it's as portable as the Asus Transformer Prime it's going to be a bit small.
