Spring Design is pushing out a firmware update for the Alex. It's not available on their website; you have to wait for your Alex to check for for it. I'm told it checks once a day.
I've just heard back from Spring Design with the details. Here is what they told me:
- updated the user manual and replaced the PDF with Epub (it nowhas all the Epub reading features like font sizes)
- the Alex now automatically shows up as a USB drive (like other Android devices, it had to be manually mounted before)
- repartitioned the internal memory to support the upcoming Android 1.6 OS (coming later this month)
- fixed a System Hang bug
