Android Honeycomb 3.1 Update UK Starts With Motorola Xoom

Android Honeycomb 3.1 Update started rolling out across the US on Tuesday.  The Motorola Xoom will be the first device to get the update with no doubt other devices will follow shortly as Google strive to bring the multiple versions of Android in-line.  The UK is expected to get the update within the next week.

Changes in the latest Android Honeycomb version are as follows:

  • Full support for the final release of Adobe® Flash® Player 10.2, delivering significant performance enhancements when viewing rich Flash content on the web.
  • Resizable widgets to enable further customization of home screens.
  • Support for USB-connected peripherals and accessories, such as keyboards, mice, game controllers and digital cameras.
  • Expanded Bluetooth features to support Bluetooth headsets in Google Talk™ video chats and Bluetooth mouse support in addition to additional shortcut keys with the Bluetooth keyboard.
  • Picture Transfer Protocol Feature support to enable easier transfer of photo files to your PC without the need for drivers.

Updated: 08/06/2011:  Well, in the absence of any updates or news from Motorola for the Xoom 3.1 UK update, we've contacted Motorola for a time frame but we're not going to hold our breath.  Given the fact that Motorola appear to be ignoring any and all requests for information on the UK version of the update we doubt they'll be getting back to us but maybe we can annoy it out of them.
