    ASUS and Acer Honeycomb tablets to get Android 3.1 in early June

    Motorola’s Xoom may have been the first tablet to get a helping of Google’s updated Android 3.1, but the other Honeycomb Tablets won’t have to wait long. Both ASUS and Acer have confirmed that their respective 10.1-inch, Tegra 2-powered Android tablets will be getting the update in early June. That’s right, both the Iconia Tab A500 and Eee Pad Transformer will be sent an over-the-air update at the beginning of next month.

    So, what about that remaining Honeycomb tablet — the LG G-Slate? LG nor T-Mobile would give us a firm time frame on the 3.1 update, but they did promise that it was “coming soon.” Either way, it’s very nice to know that these tablets will be getting refreshed very soon — hey, maybe Google wasn’t lying about its plans to improve updates after all!

    Probably. They have custom builds. Kind of like Htc Sense and moto blur. Either that or they are working out the bugs with the current version so that it's compatible for the upgrade.

    Yep, I really hope they get all the current bugs fixed and included in 3.1.
    Current Devices:
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition - Dell Venue 11 Pro Bay Trail (On Order) - LG Optimus G Pro

    For the most part their builds are stock with a few extra apps. I'm thinking Acer may beat Asus but only because Asus has the dock add on to take into consideration.

    Not getting updates was one of the reasons I was reluctant to go back to Android after using it a couple of years ago. I know a lot of people with Android devices who are stuck on older versions because their service providers can't be bothered to push out updates. This is good news indeed, I hope it continues!
