Honeycomb 3.1 will support the Asus Eee Pad Transformer to play with your console controller

Android 3.1 Honeycomb it’s here. A few days ago we published a news where you could already install the upgrade to version 3.1 if you have the Asus tablet. The novelties The main Honeycomb 3.1 have already been revealed but now some manufacturers are also distancing themselves from the rest, since except for the Motorola Xoom, all the others have some customization. It is the case that 2 of the manufacturers that stayed ‘outside the Google consortium’, will be almost the first to receive the expected update, almost against all odds.

Acer and Asus are satisfying their users with this type of news and today, moreover, Asus he has scored the same in his favor, promising an extra with respect to the rest of manufacturers, who have not yet released a garment. In this case it has announced that will give support to be able to pair and use the controls of the consoles Xbox 360 (Microsoft) and PS3 (Sony). The fact is that the command of the PS3 steam bluetooth, complying with the standard, and personally I have already tried to pair it, but although it is finally possible to do this, then there is no way to use it, because it does not establish a connection beyond that pairing.

With the command of the Xbox 360 things get a bit more complicated, because your wireless connection does not meet any standard, so it is very possible that this pairing is delegated to the USB version (wired), in which case it should be for the version with Asus keyboard dock. Be that as it may, in a few days, when the 3.1 update arrives on my Asus, I will be able to test it with both controls. In the case of the Xbox 360 I will try with the wireless receiver connecting to the Asus by its synchronization cable and with a converter USB female-female to see if there is fortune. In any case, I will report that such benefit works. Hopefully the rest of the manufacturers copy this functionality.
