Xoom running Honeycomb 3.1

I've managed to hack Honeycomb 3.1 onto the Motorola Xoom I am evaluating. The highlights that are outlined are all implemented, and to summarise;

  • its faster
  • screen transitions are smoother
  • Adobe Flash seems to have less impact on the device
  • Stock system widgets are now resizeable - duh!
  • Most importantly, the e-mail client now actually deletes mail from IMAP servers


Its an incremental upgrade and should have been called 3.02. But hey, marketing.
