Asus Eee Pad Tablets Finally Shown with Android 3.0 Honeycomb


When Asus unveiled their new lineup of Android tablets back at CES, the promise was they would run Android 3.0 at launch. The problem was they weren’t running Android 3.0 at CES. They weren’t running Android 3.0 at MWC either. But at CeBIT it was a different story. Android 3.0 Honeycomb was running in a somewhat functional build on the Eee Pad line of tablets.

We say somewhat functional because a report over at ZDNet is indicating that the transforming capabilities of the Eee Pad Transformer weren’t working with the new release of Android. Asus reps explained this was due to the very early nature of the build on the device.

Still good to see Asus plans to stick to their word and have Honeycomb on these tablets by the time they start rolling out this spring.

  1. Ya know, if these manufacturers would sell these things for under $500, they would sell like hotcakes.

    I just can’t rationalize paying a PC price for a tablet.

  2. i wish we would see some legit devices that could dual boot honeycomb and windows 7.

  3. I think this is one of the best thought out devices–get a tablet and netbook in one. However, is seems Asus has been listening to Apple about ports. From what I’ve seen on the videos for this thing the tablet does not have a USB port as it’s only on the dock, and the dock doesn’t have HDMI as it’s only on the tablet. They really need proper ports on both the dock and tablet. The idea of a tablet is to be able to take it with you without a dock and still be able to use it to its fullest. . .

    Really Asus? Are you going to skimp on ports?

  4. Why everybody is whining so much about the tablets price. It’s just starting to hit shelves. Also, stop comparing PC, notebook and tablet. They may have similar functions but its not the same technologies at all. To have so powerful and embedded hardware in a so thin device its amazing! Miniaturization of technologies comes with a price and that’s why we have to pay that much if we want to get it early…

  5. Wish there would be an option for 4G, and dual boot Ubuntu and Android.

  6. Scadole, if they sold these things for under $500, they might sell a lot, but that would just mean they’d go bankrupt quicker. Apple can sell the iPad cheap, because they make up for it since you can only buy apps from them. Also, Apple cuts out the middleman at their corporate stores.

  7. all of you saying that you cant sell tablets for under $500 have no clue what you’re talking about. the build price of an android tablet with the current trend of specs is in the ballpark of $200-$250. not a penny more, and in some cases a lot of pennies less. the expectation is that there wont be many “early adopters” of android tablets so to fend off losing money they raise the price. but what they dont realize is that if moto, lg, htc, samsung and the likes would sell their android tablets for a reasonable price (sub $400) their would be more android tablets than ipads in 2 years.
