Is the rotation lock in "locked" position ? (The slider on the side of the K1, next to the volume-)

If it turns out not to be the rotation lock switch, I know that rotation can be disabled in software, too.  If you've installed any screen widgets that can enable/disable screen lock, you might want to check them (even if you do not have them active on any screen).  And if you haven't, you might want to get one and see if you can use it to re-enable rotation.

I was thinking, the other possibility could be that something is wrong with the orientation sensor.  If you have the GPS Status & Toolbox app (and if you don't, you should get it), it also shows the tablet orientation, so you could start that up and see if it is showing the pitch/roll values correctly.

I had the same issue it started when I updated the tablet. I performed a factory reset and so far the problem has been fixed. I would wait until another update is available or ICS becomes available.
