So, as announced at the Google I/O 2011 event, the Motorola Xoom was the first tablet device to receive the update the Android 3.1 Honeycomb. It’s supposedly rolling out right now in the USA, and will no doubt reach Australian shores soon for those that have either imported the device, or found one locally.
We’ve had a tip from an Ausdroid reader that the 3.1 update is not quite as expected. Marty has informed us that, having received an update to 3.1 on his Xoom imported from the US of A, he’s noticing all kinds of issues, including:
- Strange behaviour during game-play
- Internet connectivity issues – despite a hard reset, the internet drops in and out frequently
- Unexplained resets to the boot screen, and
- Possible issues with battery life.
Not good news for Motorola. One can only hope that these issues are isolated, or that Motorola get onto the issue quickly to avoid a whole heap of unsatisfied customers – beyond those already dissatisfied at Motorola’s slow response about unlocked bootloaders on other devices.
