Pepper Computer has officially released version 3.1 of its Pepper Pad software. The 100MB update is available for a one-click direct download on the original Pepper Pad and Pepper Pad 3, and my god, it’s fantastic!
I read some of the pre-release notes so I knew what was in store for me when I updated, but nothing beats actually taking advantage of all the improvements. My favorite enhancement is the bevy of new keyboard shortcuts, which include the ability to get to the home screen, switch between tabs and applications, and correctly use the "Ctrl+L" function in Firefox. Some of my mild gripes about the device have been completely eliminated because of this update, and I can’t commend Pepper enough for not only listening to their customers but also giving them what they want.
Looks like the final part of my Pepper Pad 3 review, which will cover the disappointing aspects of the handheld, will be very short.
