Although if he is that's really cool and good for him. Could go either way.

Trust me, he is definitely NOT lying. Really bad that this was told by an employee though, who should of known better

Interesting, GPS dongle. I purchased Bluetooth GPS already.. but bleh.. GPS dongle. So, this is Asus's solution to GPS problem. Wonder how they will distribute the GPS dongle & will the be included in future Transformer Prime?

Also, if you were to test... isn't the ideal test group be those who purchased Transformer Prime to use the GPS feature? That part is rather odd....

Either way.. interesting. Wonder how that GPS lawsuit is going..
Btw, this news/announcement will upset many people who were anxiously waiting for the news based on all the hype & "marketing" that was done by few individuals.

Oh, and on final note...
Can't fix a damn H/W issue with S/W... ahem.

Edit: Also, would rather see Hai Trat in this forum over Gary Key.

So what do we do if we already registered our Prime on the site? Just wait for Gary's announcement I'm guessing. I use GPS2Bluetooth now so if this will help and its free I definitely want it.

And here we go...

ASUS will have fixed the #1 "OHMYGOD ASUS I want what you sold me how dare you just remove GPS from the marketing give me what I paid for!!!!!" issue, and people will complain that something else wasn't done instead.

If this turns out to be true, and it seems legit, then I think ASUS will have come up with an elegant solution to a problem. They'll have demonstrated some serious good faith in resolving customer issues, and nobody--and I mean NOBODY--can continue to accuse them of all of the nefarious practices people on this forum have accused them of.

As far as wifi goes, did you read the entire message? It looks like they've made progress on recent units, and have probably identified a means to improve wifi reception. So, they're working on that, for real, as well. Again, demonstrating that they're really working hard to make customers happy, which is about all we can ask for from a company.

I will believe it exists, whether or not I like the design solution chosen will be based on when I am able to see it. If it weren't $500 to possibly **** up, I have a few ideas of my own I wouldn't mind testing just to see if they are feasible.

Can the dongle be used with the Prime docked? How about in a case?
