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.

* Support for the new Android Market movie rentals service with thousands of titles available for immediate viewing on the Motorola XOOM’s high-resolution display or on a larger screen via HDMI

* Resizable widgets to enable further customization of home screens

* Support for USB-connected peripherals and accessories, such as keyboards, mice, game controllers and digital cameras

* Expanded Bluetooth features to support Bluetooth headsets in Google Talk™ video chats and Bluetooth mouse support in addition to additional shortcut keys with the Bluetooth keyboard

    Mine was waiting to be installed when I woke up this morning. Have not really noted the changes yet but have not had time to do much while at work.

    I have a Xoom Wifi only and I have not seen an update to 3.1 yet. I did receive the Adobe Flash 10.3 update though.
