    I got one this morning. So far I have no idea what it provided except for the inclusion of the Nook app. Which I find really irritating - nothing against Nook, but one of the things I really liked about this tablet (as opposed to the Tab 10.1) was the low bloatware count. And the bloat it does have are mostly apps that I'd use anyway. If I wanted Nook on my tablet, I'd already have it on there.

    My feelings exactly! I'm also annoyed by little to no information on what is in these updates (seems like there have been quite a few lately). Someone posted a screenshot on the last one that indicated the Nook app, but I want to know more about them to justify installing them. Wish Samsung provided a change log somewhere. I've searched but have yet to find anything about it.

    What really frustrates me is that there are legitimate things that still need to be addressed. I am still shocked that the keyboard will not autocorrect. And yes, I'm aware there are perfectly good third party solutions (though, much as I love Swiftkey, I don't care for their tablet layout; Kii is really the best for tablets if you want touch typing). It just bothers me because it's such a simple, standard thing you would expect any virtual keyboard to do on a touchscreen device. And it's even more dumbfounding because the included keyboard asks you to log in to Gmail, Facebook et al. and show a perfectly good suggestion to correct what you type above la SwiftKey, but does nothing to correct what you type (with the lone exception of very helpfully changing i to I.) They have come out with multiple updates since I bought this tablet and not a single one has addressed this issue - apparently, it's much more important that we have the Nook app.

    I was wondering what this update was really for. Looks like nothing useful apparently.

    What is the latest firmware?
    I have PDA:L14 / Phone :L13 / CSC:L12 (XSG)

    I received a message earlier today through Kies that my firmware needed updating. I clicked to update and it did do the first part then a new screen came up and stopped at 12%.
    I have a really bad connection here so I don't know if the update has actually been applied.

    Cheers,

    Maxy
