Asus Eee Pad Transformer gets Android 3.2 Honeycomb update

We absolutely love the Asus Eee Pad Transformer – it’s well made, speedy and truly innovative – but the operating system is one area that lets it down slightly. It’s not bad, but it could definitely be improved. Thankfully, Asus is on the case, and the Eee Pad Transformer is set to get an update to Android 3.2 Honeycomb today.

Out of all the tablets we’ve seen in the past year, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer definitely features the most impressive hardware, with a keyboard that turns it effortlessly into a mini laptop. When you don’t fancy writing, or having the smallest and lightest computer is more important, just detach the screen and take it out on its own.

The software on the Eee Pad Transformer isn’t quite so good though. It’s occasionally unintuitive, and it still feels like Android is better suited to smartphones. Thankfully, there are lots of updates for Android, and Asus has been quicker than most to implement them.

The last update for the Eee Pad Transformer was released at the beginning of June, but you’ll now be able to download Android 3.2 Honeycomb for your tablet – proving just how quickly Asus work. Whether you’ll be able to download the latest version of Android irrespective of what area you live in – or whether updates are just starting today – remains to be seen.
