It was just weird because I was getting notification noises so it didn't seem to be doing an upgrade. I went ahead and forced it off and booted it up again, it's still at 7.1.1 and wants to download the update again. Fingers crossed!

Looks like the upgrade went without a hitch, I'll have to get used to some of the UI changes. It fixed some notification problems I was experiencing (I want getting them for a lot of apps). For some reason the update installed 2 games which I promptly uninstalled.

According to the update matrix, it looks like the TB-8704V sold in Canada isn't getting the upgrade. Does anyone know the differences which would account for this?
Based on the following PDF, the core components in the V model appear to be the same as the units they're continuing to support.

my tab4 8 got the 8.1 update yesterday. wow, great improvment in overall speed.
for a $130 buck device Lenovo updates it more than anyone else. the MS programs are great and i have no problems hooking up to my companies VPN when away from the office.
