Yesterday we reported that ASUS was planning an Android 4.3 update for its Transformer Pad slate scheduled to drop on November 18. But with the KitKat 4.4 update being rolled out for several Nexus tablets, it seems Asus is keen on rushing things along as well.
As it turns out, the Android 4.3 update for the Transformer Pad TF701T has been posted on the official ASUS support site and can be downloaded as of now.
On top of that, users will get a ROM to enhance the performance of the battery, boosting the life expectancy of the tablet and improving the dock’s trackpad responsiveness. There are two versions available, the Taiwanese SKU and another one that covers the rest of the world (which is not available at the moment). It’s a 1GB download.
You can still leave the November 18 date market in your calendar, as this might be when the OTA update hits the device.
