We’ve been waiting for this day and it’s finally here. ASUS Eee Pad Transformer users are reporting the Android 3.2 upgrade coming to their devices and there are celebrations everywhere. UK users don’t have long to wait either with ASUS promising a rollout in yonder lands tomorrow, August 2 via a FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) update.
You do need to be on a stock (unrooted) Eee Pad Transformer to get the upgrade. If you’ve already rooted your tablet, don’t fret. You just need to go back to stock and install the update. Or you can wait for the rooted Android 3.2 upgrade to make an appearance. As history tells us, that shouldn’t take long.
While a lot of users are feeling sad about the upgrade still not bringing Netflix to the Eee Pad Transformer, there are other goodies for you to be really happy about. These include the compatibility zoom that allows smartphone apps to fill the full screen on your tab in native resolution. The app won’t look stretched the way it did before 3.2. Then there are some optimizations across a wider range of tablets, direct media loading from removable SD card, and extended screen support API that allows you better UI control on pixel density and similar display features.
A Transformer specific change is that the keyboard dock now supports multi-gestures. That means you can use the touchpad just like the touchscreen on your tablet.
Have you got your ASUS Eee Pad Transformer running on Android 3.2 yet? Tell us what you love most about the new features.
