    Ok, so we are all patiently waiting for the Over the Air update, except those of us who can't wait.

    But for those who are waiting, how often do you check for updates?

    I haven't been using the tablet for a while now so I haven't been checking. Instead, I check on this forum daily for an "official update" thread.

    Never. Have 3.1 on it now. Really like it. Love my tab, but losing faith that Acer will get off their a$$ anytime soon.

    Wait, wait, wait...

    The first Wifi Tablet with dual USB ports.
    The first tablet with ANY Master-mode USB, no, wait, make that the ONLY
    First tablet with MicroSD card support.
    The first 10 inch tablet sith Honeycomb, out a month before anyone else,


    And YOU run out and install some hacked beta release and then complain that they aren't doing anything?
    Why, because the release was going to happen on the 5th which is a whole WEEK away?

    You voided your warranty to get something a WEEK early because ... Why?

    I'll wait till Acer officially releases it and see how the update works for others before I do mine, I want to see how it handles Tablets that have been rooted and tweaked or will we have to do a system restore to undo all the changes before the update will take?

    Once every day or two. But if you said Netfix, then two or three times a day. :)

    Glad you know it's the 5th. Course, it was supposed to be June 23rd. Wait, July 1st. Acer will get it out, but I chose not to wait. That is the beauty of Android. The ability to customize. Voided my warranty? Yeah, possibly. On the other hand I have 3.1 now, it was EASY to add to my tablet and it's doing some awesome things you are still waiting for. Guess that's "why."
