Android 3.1 Honeycomb Coming Soon to Xoom!

Android 3.1 Honeycomb is coming to Xoom Android tablets first, with added support for Adobe Flash 10.2,  re-sizable widgets, USB peripherals support (I like this), expanded bluetooth support for bluetooth mouse/keyboard, and a whole lot more goodies.

Hopefully, I will get my hands on a Xoom soon, I’ve been saving my funds to get either the Xoom or the LG G-Slate, I am leaning towards the G-Slate though.
