Froyo on… ASUS Transformer?

You have got to love how past, present, and future can meet in our devices. In a rather kafka-esque type of event, the Android bee has turned itself into a delicious treat because it seems that some Asus Transformers that went for a few customers left with Froyo installed in them.
