tdp252 writes: "Geeks after having unwrapped their Quad-Core Transformer Prime are finding that the tablet is not reliably acquiring a GPS lock. There are uncertainties on the XDA forums about whether this is merely due to a software issue or if a more serious design fault may be at play. The Prime uses an aluminum metal-backing that while desirable as a styling element could potentially block signal reception."

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
