Time for day two of our NVIDIA Tegra holiday giveaways! We'll be holding 2 more Tegra-themed giveaways in addition to this one over the next couple days - so be sure to come back every day through Sunday to check out the latest one. Today's giveaway is - you guessed it - more tablets! We're offering up the ASUS Transform Pad Infinity (TF700) and Transformer Pad 300 (TF300T), both bundled with their respective keyboard docks - both of which pack Tegra 3 quad-core power. Read More
Another day, another round of nightly builds for the upcoming CyanogenMod 10.1. This time, the latest release of the custom ROM that brings Android 4.2 has been made available on a further 3 devices: the Google Nexus S, Nexus S 4G, and the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 (TF300T).
: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.
One of the nicest options of ASUS' line of tablets is the keyboard dock with a built-in extra battery that can make your device run forever and much easier to type on. The downside? Those docks tend to cost over $100. In the case of the Transformer Pad 300 (TF300), exactly $127, to be precise. Right now, though, Newegg is offering it for free if you buy it with the tablet.

A new update for Asus' middle-range Android tablet is rolling out at this very moment. Users on XDA are reporting getting the update notification, but it appears to be a little fickle with rooted devices. The abbreviated changelog claims this is a simple stability enhancement.
Update: This build is now available as a full ROM over at ASUS' TF300 Downloads.
To get the software on a rooted device, it is recommended that you take a few steps before applying the update. Read More
A bit less than two weeks ago, the TF300 became the first non-Nexus ASUS tablet to receive an update to Jelly Bean, starting with the U.S. Several days later, ASUS posted the full Jelly Bean ROM v10.4.2.9, though only for U.S. variants, and almost immediately started the OTA rollout in Europe.
If you have one of these TF300s with a WW (worldwide) or TW (Taiwan) SKU and haven't gotten the OTA yet (or messed something up and want to restore), the full ROMs are now downloadable from the TF300 support page (select Download -> Android):
Since ASUS' site often times out, I'll save you a few minutes of frustration and provide all 3 direct links:
To check the region variant of the software on your TF300T, go to Settings > About tablet and look at Build number. Read More
One of the most appealing aspects of owning a tablet from ASUS' Transformer line is the optional keyboard dock. It turns the tablet into an Android-powered netbook of sorts, making note taking, replying to emails, and other general productivity-based things much easier. The included battery also boosts usable time by up to four+ hours on most models, making the dock even more useful.
The main problem with the keyboard accessory, however, is the price tag; after spending $400+ on a new tablet, many users don't want to shell out the extra $150 to add the dock. Read More
