Motorola has announced that Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) is now available for Xoom tablets in Blighty.
The update, which has been out a while now for Xoom owners Stateside is currently being rolled out over the air to devices in the UK and should land on your notifications bar imminently.
It brings the long-awaited activation of the Xoom’s microSD slot, which until now had been inoperative. This means the storage capacity of the tablet can be expanded by a further 32GB.
Multitasking has been improved for a smoother, faster user experience and there’s now support for peripheral devices such as cameras, which can be hooked up to the tablet for direct transfer of photos, as well as compatibility with PC joysticks.
The latest build of Adobe Flash is also on board, as well as a Wi-Fi lock feature and resizable home screen widgets.
Users are strongly advised to back-up their data before installing the update and use a Wi-Fi connection where available to avoid eating into their 3G allowances.
