Mine hasn't updated yet either, and I accidentally left my wifi on all day. No matter, as it's about to go back anyway. The info about the upgrade is a dealbreaker. I'm returning it and will keep an eye out for good deals on tablets at Best Buy or on Woot.com after Christmas. I fix software issues all day, and to be honest, I just don't feel like hacking my tablet to emulate the standard Android OS. I want someone else to just hand me a tablet that doesn't need to be rooted that I can charge and go.
Too bad. It really has been fun - I had just about decided to keep it before reading the news.
