Motorola may have told Xoom Wi-Fi owners yesterday that the Android 3.1 Honeycomb update would start rolling out in the ‘next several weeks’, but in a strange turn of events, it appears that the update has already begun to roll out.
A bunch of evidence from Wi-Fi Xoom owners has surfaced over at Droid-Life and it appears that the Android 3.1 update is rolling out in a full-fledged OTA. This is definitely a pleasant surprise for Wi-Fi Xoom owners who may have felt left out after hearing the Android 3.1 announcement at Google I/O.
