Devices Running Android Honeycomb 3.1

Android Honeycomb 3.1 has been out for over a month now after an initial roll-out to the Motorola Xoom in the United States but we're curious to see which devices are actually running the latest version of the tablet specific Android operating system.

Device Rolled Out Country
Motorola Xoom 10th May 2011 US Only
Asus Eee Pad Transformer 1st June 2011 ALL
Asus Iconia Tab A500 July? ?
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 10th June 2011 ALL
Toshiba Thrive Standard *
Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Standard *

*Standard Upon release.

There's been much frustration over the lack of an Honeycomb 3.1 update for the Motorola Xoom outside of the US and whether the delay is down to Google or Motorola it doesn't seem like an update is imminent.  A post over at the Motorola Owners forum on May 16th stated:

"Motorola XOOM users around the world: We know you are eager to update to Android 3.1 software. We are working on the schedule for the regional upgrades. Each region will have slightly different timing due to specific regional requirements, and features may vary based on availability and other factors. In the meantime, we caution anyone considering the use of Motorola XOOM software that is not specifically intended for their region as this can seriously damage your device."

Sounds like the quickest way for Xoom owners to get hold of Honeycomb 3.1 is to buy different tablet.
