ASUS Transformer update; Netflix support on board

asus-transformer

Proud owners of the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer have been very happy with their overall tablet experience. The Honeycomb tablet has great specs, an awesome price and a very convenient Keyboard dock. What else can you ask for? Not much, except Netflix support.

There is a workaround for rooted users, but those who don’t like tampering with devices have been left out. Most Honeycomb tablets can simply have the Netflix .apk file installed on them to achieve successful streaming. Such has not been the case for the lonely Transformer. Until today.

The ASUS transformer is currently receiving a maintenance update (build 8.6.5.9), and guess what? It comes with Netflix support! You still have to grab the .apk file and install it manually, but that’s still way better than before.

Those that do not have an ASUS Eee Pad Transformer will love to know that Walmart now has it for $350[1]. If you were planning on getting one soon, this could be a great opportunity to do so.

If you haven’t updated your tablet yet, simply go to Settings > About Tablet > System Update > Check Update and update your device. After that, download and install the .apk file (Droid-Life has a link available).

What do you guys say? Is it working for you? It’s been working perfectly for me. Let us know what you think. Happy streaming!
