The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and Acer Iconia Tab A500 will get Honeycomb 3.1 in June


With the Motorola Xoom being the first tablet to get Honeycomb 3.1, where does this leave other tablets? We know the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will ship with it pre-installed. ASUS and Acer have announced that they will be updating the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and the Acer Iconia Tab A500 to Honeycomb 3.1 in June.

You can expect the update to be over-the-air and it will bring performance improvements, UI enhancements like stretchable widgets, a new task switcher, and support for USB peripherals.

LG said they will be updating as well, but would not commit to a date.

With the competition heating up in the tablet war, lets hope all the manufacturers recognize that they need to get these updates quicker rather than later.
