Telstra to update Motorola Xoom to Android 3.1
Telstra has announced that it will bring Android 3.1 to the Motorola Xoom in July, enabling the microSD card reader along the way.
The software update puts Australia ahead of the US, which although has received its 3.1 updates prior to Australia, still has a non-functioning microSD card reader. Telstra customers will also be receiving a file manager application, which was not part of the initial software package.
Android 3.1's headline updates include resizeable widgets, Bluetooth headset support in Google Talk, Bluetooth mouse support, full support for Adobe's Flash Player 10.3 and USB host support, allowing the Xoom to communicate properly with USB mice, keyboards, storage, digital cameras and more.
The update is expected to be delivered over the air in July, with Telstra starting testing next week.
