If reports are to be believed, Motorola’s flagship Android tablet-Xoom users in India will get the Android 3.1 update over-the-air today.
In order to get the update you need to “Settings > About Tablet > System Updates” to manually update the firmware which is a 40MB download. However, you need to keep in mind that the over-the-air update is not provided by service providers and therefore you need to update it manually through Motorola’s website.
Here are some of the major changes you can expect with the update:
SD card support: Now you can expand the storage memory of your Motorola Xoom up to 64GB by inserting a 32GB SD card because the update activates the memory card slot.
Connect different input devices: Connect a keyboard, mouse PC joystick or a gamepad using Bluetooth or the USB slot.
Transfer pictures from a camera on-the-fly: You can also plug in your digital camera and transfer images to the Xoom without any hassles.
Wi-Fi lock: A high-performance Wi-Fi lock will let your applications maintain high-performance WiFi connections even when the device screen is off.
Flash Player and File Manager: The update also promises to bring Adobe Flash Player and a file manager to the Xoom.
Other Additions: Improved multi-tasking, providing instant visual access to a large number of applications as well as resizable home screen widgets for Gmail, Calendar and Browser.
