    I installed V2.08 yesterday as well, but did not notice any difference as of yet.

    The problem w/connecting to wifi after logging in seems to be fixed in v2.08. The trackpad also appears to be working normally, now. When I press the power button to put the tablet to sleep, it wakes up immediately by pressing it again. I'll check the sleep thing more thoroughly, though.

    Applied update 2.08 this evening. It was installed through Acer's Live Updater application. The update caused a restart and some firmware updates. A couple of firmware updates had 'touch' and 'keyboard' in the description.

    I can confirm that the trackpad is better than before. Not sure how much better because it is still not quite as responsive as my Toshiba laptop's but then I may be expecting perfection. Too early to tell yet. Thought to let you guys know.

    Apply the 2.08 update. It will most probably be a good update.

    strange my impression is that it was for some audio updates.

    anyway good to know that the Live Updater is finally working!

    btw i got my hands on Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 but so far i am finding the w510 much better except for the lack of inking capability. For those keen on inking, the TPT2 inking is much much better than samsung's ativ. But other than this, the TPT2 is driving me crazy!

    How long should this update take? Been waiting for over 10 minutes

    Anybody else missing the Acer Ring software?

    Also, you would think the keyboard dock would charge the tablet so you would be at 100% anytime you undock. Unfortunately they decided that it would just drain one battery or the other, no charging whatsoever. Weird decision making there.
