Some lucky Motorola Xoom owners are receiving over-the-air Android 3.1 updates to their WiFi-only Xoom's. Motorola has previously said that this update would be available "within the next several weeks" and by several weeks we kinda mean now. 3G Xoom owners have an option besides waiting for the OTA update and that is the ability to install the Android 3.1 manually via Android Total.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
