    was able to download and install the 3.1 update late last night... was only able to play around with it for an hour or so... aside from it being a little snappier, are there any other features that were added/enabled for this update? the apps that I usually use (email, FB, browser) all seems to be about the same, maybe the browser is a little faster, so I'm wondering if there should be a noticeable difference with this release... what are your thoughts?

    The YouTube app is fixed! First thing I checked and you can now play HD videos nice and smooth. Almost was going to return if they didn't fix this, because what good is a tablet if you cannot show off awesome videos. I also noticed the gesture buttons on the browser have changed to be more functional and less confusing.

    I haven't come across the slider as of yet... how about the gesture buttons that people seem to have.... how do you activate that?

    Go into the browser > menu > settings > labs and enable quick controls

    One of the best new features is the full screen browser. To enable it, open your browser and go to settings, then Labs, then check the quick controls box.
    Now if you want to access any buttons or controls in your browser, simply drag your finger in from the left or right side of the screen and a menu wheel will come up.
    Really neat browsing experience.

    My understanding is 3.1 is mainly optimizations and bug fixes. 3.0 was rushed out way to early, and Google is finally fixing that mistake.

    The only thing missing is the Movies Tab on the Market, anyone has it or is it just me?

    Edit guys, just saw the tab on my Transformer.

    How did you find the movies tab in market? I thought google movies is only available for xoom for now. I don't see it on my market app.

    I suppose you can use the browser on the TF, and go to market.android.com.

    That's true but you still can't watch it on the tablet unless you have the xoom.

    see the 3.1 platform highlights to for summary

    edit: interesting: "A new high-performance Wi-Fi lock lets applications maintain high-performance Wi-Fi connections even when the device screen is off. Users can take advantage of this to play continuous streamed music, video, and voice services for long periods, even when the device is otherwise idle and the screen is off."
