Early next week Honeycomb 3.1 will be available for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 tablet. Asus will be rolling out this over-the-air update possibly by Monday. Along with the OS update will come some quite useful and noticeable improvements.
For starters, a firmware update for the docking station will improve mouse tracking, USB compatibility and last but not least, typing speeds! Within the UI itself there will be improvements in regards to both overall speed and stability. This includes apps launching quicker as well as smoother transitions between menus. Users will also have the ability to resize widgets. For certain this will apply to Google widgets until more app developers begin to include this feature which will most likely happen sooner than later.
