In addition to the standard Android 4.3 features and enhancements, the update brings multiple other improvements and changes such as battery life improvements, trackpad responsiveness in dock, improve dock battery charging. However, keep in mind the fact that there are two different versions of Android 4.3 update available: one for the Taiwanese SKU and another one for the rest of the world.

Moreover, this amazing tablet includes 32 GB internal storage, Wi-Fi feature, Bluetooth, micro HDMI port and a 31 Li-polymer battery.
