HoPfUlly not too long. If it becomes an issue. One of the nice things about the Asus tablets seems to be that they encourage hacking/reverse engineering to a degree. Although you have to waive your warranty right if you want to start putzing around the bios, they do allow you to do so. Which I thought was pretty cool.

So, what I garnered through the forums & chats was that the Asus tablet guys seem to get 'some' forewarned knowledge of what's going on. They still have to figure it all out, but at least they get a start. That's 'my' take, anyway.

I won't go with any other tablet, pretty much for that reason. Any device that I can't root, I simply won't buy.

Right - I just bought this w/Jellybean, and I love it. They do have a dedicated support/forum too. The only minor thing is the battery life is so-so. It has the same features as the Transformer Prime and Transformer Infinity but cheaper (mine is Transformer TF300T)
