Google, recently, at their I/O conference, announced the first update for their tablet-optimised version of Android, Honeycomb. Android 3.1 will have some new features but mostly consists of minor tweaks here and there. The new features include support for USB Host mode where you can transfer pictures from your memory card or camera and make use of other accessories as well. Widgets on your homescreen are now resizable and there was a demo of games being played on a tablet running Honeycomb 3.1 with an Xbox 360 controller.
Updates heading ASUS and Acer's way
Now, the Motorola Xoom was the first to receive the update, but now it seems that other Honeycomb tablets will not be all that far behind. According to ThisIsMyNext, both ASUS and Acer have confirmed that their tablets, the Eee Pad Transformer and the Iconia Tab A500 respectively, will be receiving the Android 3.1 Honeycomb update over-the-air in June.
There is no word on the other released Honeycomb tablets getting the update, but we hope to hear some more information on that front soon.
