    I know I heard that for example
    1) keyboard patch to keep it from timing out (but can do via reg etc for now)
    2) a pro 11 patch for the screen/stylus that the vp8 got this week
    3) a patch for using the display power saving without the flicker

    and if anyone know of others it would be nice to mention here..BTW do we know when any of these will be release to the GP?

    Add in a patch from Intel to fix the freezing issues for 7130. Dell is testing it, although you can get it yourself from intel with a little effort,

    Add in a patch to let the tablet operate properly when the slim keyboard is attached but folded back behind the tablet.

    Currently it does disable the keys to avoid accidental key presses which is good. But it doesn't tell windows that no active keyboard is present... so windows will NOT allow screen orientation changes and will NOT pop up the on screen keyboard as needed when you tap in a text field (yes, I know you can bring up the keyboard on the desktop side but on the metro/modern side there its a major issue).

    Whilst this is an issue, also on the metro side of things you can bring up the keyboard via charms, settings, and the language "button".

    they seem to be slow with the patches... I know there was supposed to be the keyboard one, and the screen flicker so you can use power save and not get the flicker but nada....

    This works in some cases but in others its very frustrating... try this...

    - Swipe to bring up the charms menu...
    - select search
    - tap in the search box to type your text (no keyboard appears).
    - swipe to bring up the charms menu to make the keyboard appear...

    where did your search go?
