Springing a surprise, Asus has quietly come up with its release of the source code of Android Honeycomb. This is the driving force behind Asus’ Eee Pad Transformer device, which also goes by the name TF101.

The source code which comes at nearly 98MB is labeled version V8.2.2.6. There are a couple of download options – direct or the user-friendly torrent.  It must be remembered that Google had released the Software Development Kit (SDK) on the 22nd February but has since gone back on the release of the source code.

The Asus EEE Pad transformer has already hit the market in the UK for as little as £361 from Comet.

The device comes with a 10-inch IPS touch screen display with a one-mega pixel resolution. Spicing up the device are the Nvidia Tegra 2 system on chip clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, HDMI, USB, Wi-Fi. Needless to say, it runs on Android Honeycomb!

What really adds value to the device is the fact that you can add a docking station. This comes at as cheap as £50 and helps convert it into a fully fledged laptop. This would also add in two USB ports and an additional battery that doubles the battery life of the device.

Asus is one of the most potential rivals to the iPad2 with the cheapest model costing £399. Without wasting much ado, it must be said that iPad2 has some competition. We, at the hub, would keep things closer to you.
