One of the long-awaited news of the past Google I / O 2011 was the update of Android 3.1 Honeycomb. They certainly used the Motorola Xoom tablet for this novelty and at the end of the presentation they commented that the update would arrive for all the other brands in stages. As the owner of an Asus Eee Pad Transformer, it gave me a little chill to see that, when they commented on the news of the ‘consortium’ of updates together with the main manufacturers of Android devices and the most prominent operators, Asus did not appear on that board. One of the main blemishes in Android is stay behind with updates.

Last week some users of the Motorola Xoom with Verizon they reported that they were already getting update to 3.1 and it was also commented that the graceful owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (new) would also receive it shortly, something almost obvious considering that Google gave 5,000 units to the public present during the inaugural event.

This morning I read the happy news where it is said that Asus and Acer have confirmed that for early june, so many of us have the Asus Eee Pad Transformer as those who have the Acer Iconia Tab A500 we will receive the desired upgrade to Honeycomb 3.1 via OTA (update by WiFi). Thanks to this update we will have improvements with the connection USB (In the Acer it is already supported from the factory), in addition to support for the SD card reader (in the Asus it is already supported at the factory), improvements in performance and general consumption of the system, support to run more applications and resizing of widgets (anything else?). With this news it could be said that all holders of a tablet with Honeycomb will receive this update in record time. There are some manufacturers to confirm date, but that 2 of those that were off the list have confirmed so soon is very promising.
