Submission + - Android 3.1 Comes To The Asus Eee Pad Transformer (

MojoKid writes: "Today, a little Bumble Bee floated a new Asus Eee Pad Transformer firmware update packing Android 3.1 in all its golden sweetness. Quick on the up-take, Hot Hardware dropped the payload on to a microSD card faster than a hornet zipping around your Memorial Day weekend fruit salad bowl. Android 3.1 is about the little things, as they say. Resizable application widgets are really nice to play with; setting up your favorite home screen just the way you like it, so you can see as much or as little quick-take data as you want in your favorite apps and feeds. However, what's likely more impressive to die-hard Android fans will be the performance enhancements brought on by 3.1, with its significantly more responsive multitasking capabilities and even a slightly more responsive touch interface."
