AFAIK Android 3.0 Honeycomb hasn't been released by Google yet - Asus have done it before them. So I think Asus have posted it on the product page of the TF-101 to encourage the Linux community to get coding.
I'm hoping the Eee Pad Transformer's hardware is good enough to allow very low latencies - something I wouldn't have thought likely in a smartphone - which is why this release might get more interest.
So when I say easy, I mean for people with a very good knowledge of Linux. For me, it's gonna be a long road but I'm up for trying.
so I thought that Asus must have released the Linux kernel part of the OS so that ppl could start creating apps etc for it ?
I downloaded it but I have no idea what to look for being a Linux noob.
The hardware is so tasty that I reckon I'm not the only one who'll want this and it'll only be a matter of time before $5 gets me a download that'll allow a usb dac chip like a PCM2707 to export an I2S from it. Even better if I could then hack this to drive a Tenor 7022L chip for 96/24 I2S output.
From my experience with Windows, low latency, esp low DPC latency, is what makes USB audio worthwhile.
My desktop has a low DPC latency of around 20us and that is lower than one sample for a PCM 2707 afaik, so I dunno if Android will actually be any better. But I'm always looking to try anything that might be...
