Asus Plans Add-on to Fix Transformer Prime’s GPS Issues

Ina Fried:

Asus confirmed on Friday that it plans to address GPS reception issues with its Transformer Prime tablet by releasing a kit users can add to their existing tablet.

The company said on Friday that it will officially announce its plans on April 16, at which time tablet owners can register on Asus’ Web site.

A few questions: What is this, a dongle? The Transformer Prime was only released four months ago — aren’t they under warranty? Or is this Asus’s solution not just for ones they’ve already sold, but also going forward? Here’s your new tablet, hope you like GPS dongles.
