Yesterday, some blogs specialized in Android, began to report that some users of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer they were already receiving the update via OTA (by 3G or WiFi) from Android 3.1 Honeycomb. Both Acer and Asus promised that such an update would arrive in early June. The surprise of many Asus tablet owners is that the term ‘early June’ was really ‘just starting June’. I, this morning, I decided to force the update from the system settings and immediately afterwards the download and update process started.

At first glance, the system is the same, with the same interface, where the first thing that can be seen is that the bar of open applications, which previously could only be 5, now ‘has no limit’. I have also noticed that the icon for the WiFi connection has changed, as it now also shows when it is receiving or sending data. Very useful to know the activity of our connection and super useful for when we make the connection by tethering through the 3G data connection of our mobile.

For the rest, they are stability improvements and the expected enabling the USB connection, giving Host support, so that it can recognize pendrives, keyboards and others. All this I will discover and add in a video analysis that will come out as soon as all the details are compiled. From here, to those interested, I invite you to ask me for tests of the 3.1 and the tablet, which I will start with the performance of Flash and HD videos.
