Motorola has finally deemed the XOOM owners in Europe worthy enough for a software update. While XOOM owners in the U.S. started receiving the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update this weekend, European owners will be getting the Android 3.1 HC update now.
The Android 3.1 Honeycomb update mainly aims at improving the core stability of the apps, along with improvements in 2D rendering. The update also brings scrollable widgets, and removes the 5 app limit from the multi-task switcher.
Motorola is rolling out the update in stages, so it will take quite some time before some XOOM owners get the update. I am talking about weeks and not days here.
I guess XOOM owners should not even think about the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update before in the next couple of months. Impatient XOOM owners in Europe can always head over to XDA forums, and download and install the Android 3.2 Honeycomb ROM.
The XOOM was the first Android tablet to launch with Honeycomb on-board. However, it is among the slowest tablets out there to get updated to the latest version of Honeycomb. The most popular Android tablet, Asus EeePad Transformer, got its Android 3.2 Honeycomb update a couple of weeks ago!
