    For those who have a Verizon Motorola Xoom you will be happy to know you will be getting an update starting today... Android 3.1 was just announced at Google I/O and Verizon Xoom owners will be getting the update pushed out later today to their devices. The changes that are coming with this release are:USB host, enhanced task switcher, re-sizable widgets and a brand new multitasking engine to help reduce crashes and produce more fluid transitions between applications.

    Heard over @ XDA and Xoom Forums that the update contains a bootloader. I hope this isn't true, but I will hold off on updating my Xoom until I hear more.

    I haven't been keeping up with this. Do SD cards work on the Xoom yet? Does this new release fix it?

    SD works but the fix didn't come from Motorola, it came from the hacking community - and the 3.1 update will break that hack
