ASUS just announced via its official Twitter account that the Eee Pad Transformer would be receiving the latest iteration of Honeycomb -- Android 3.2 -- on July 28th (tomorrow). The newest version of Honeycomb will bring bug fixes and a few new features to the tablet-netbook-hybrid, including the new "app zoom" feature that makes phone-specific apps scale more appropriately on the larger, 1280x800 display.

Look, they even made a nifty little image.

There's no official word on exactly when the rollout will begin, but it can't hurt to start checking for updates at midnight, right?

Update: The update is now officially rolling out (thanks, schoeot and others):

    Can't wait, I will be checking at midnight to see if I can get my netflix fix! :)

      root that bad boy and you'd already be enjoying netflix on the transformer :)

  • brandon

    I'm so happy I took the plunge and went with the Transformer -- ASUS has done a great job with the software updates!

  • ABTBenjamins

    Well, 3.2 is as good a reason as any to finally pick up a Transformer.

  • Hans

    And European Xoom is still on 3.0. I will never buy anything from Motorola again.

    Just bought transformer yesterday got the 3.1 now there rolling out the 3.2. Good to see someone isn't slacking... I think it needs a slight overclocked though. Not going to root or rom it until my girlfriend gets acquainted with android.

  • Jim

    The Transformer got 3.1 before the Iconia, so I went with the Transformer hoping for additional timely updates in the future. Looks like I made a good call. Way to go Asus!

  • Cory

    I also just got the transformer last week! Can't wait to play with the new features!

    Awesome! I already have Netflix working but I'm still excited to see what else is new! Hopefully there will be aa rooted version out soon

  • ChumbleSpuzz

    Just rooted my transformer to get Netflix working. Is this OTA update going to take root away? Can I disable automatic OTA updates?

  • James

    I just got my transformer this week. I want to root. Should I get 3.2 or should I wait?

    How about the keyboard lag when typing in the browser ? Still there? Have to wait for the worldwide update which hopefully comes next week...

  • andres

    Do not update!! Major FU in launching the browser from a link in emails. Typing forms on webstes such as this post continues to SUCK big time.

  • Raavi

    WW 3.2 update just came out today, I grabbed it about 3 hours ago (around 9 AM CET/7 AM GMT).
    Just tested launching link from email and it worked just fine for me - both for Google mail and standard POP3/SMTP mail client.
    Confirming that typing in forms is totally borked. Might as well snail-mail the text you want to post, will be easier

    3.2 has this weird mouse .. it seems really useless and unnessessary. Also, the keyboard is still laggy :(.
