We recently said that the Android 3.1 Honeycomb update would be coming to the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and the Acer Iconia Tab A500 starting in June. Well, one of those tablets may be getting the update just a tad sooner. According to inside sources, the ASUS tablet update will be heading out over-the-air starting early next week.
The Android 3.1 Honeycomb update will bring several new UI features including more advanced widgets, a new multi-task switcher, and overall improved stability. But for the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, this also means a docking station firmware update that will improve mouse tracking, typing speeds, and USB compatibility.
The update may come out as early as next Monday, so do keep your eyes peeled. Next Monday is also the first day of Computex 2011, where ASUS is set to debut at least two new tablet-styled devices, including a 3D tablet as well as one that will be a tablet and phone hybrid, possibly called the “Padfone.”
