I am thinking of buying a Motorola Xoom tablet from Amazon UK. It will come with Android 3.0 installed. I would like to upgrade to Android 3.1. How easy (or difficult) will that be? Will I need to connect the Xoom to a MS Windows machine? I am asking because I don't have one. I do have Linux (Fedora) laptops. Will be grateful for any comments, suggestions or, advice.

Do Motorola not provide upgrades? Having bought an Asus pad, I find that they have provided updates to 3.2. They are delivered OTA like the upgrades for Android phones, so you don't need any other hardware to install them.

According to this:
http://www.t3.com/news/motorola-xoom-android-3-1-honeycomb-update-hits-the-uk?=59333

Motorola are rolling out 3.1 in the UK right now... a full 3 months after they rolled it out in the US (who are now on 3.2).

If you want to "manually" update the Xoom it would need to be rooted first:

Be sure to read the disclaimer on that link Wink
