    Today Motorola officially announced Android 3.1 for the Xoom that we heard about at Google I/O yesterday. They released the following details of the update:
    • 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
    • Full support for the final release of Adobe® Flash® Player 10.2, delivering significant performance enhancements when viewing rich Flash content on the web
    • 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
    • Picture Transfer Protocol Feature support to enable easier transfer of photo files to your PC without the need for drivers
    Motorola indicated that the rollout of this update will occur throughout the week for the Verizon version first, and the WiFi only and other variants will receive it in the next few weeks.
