If you're a Xoom owner here in the United States, you probably felt more than a pang of jealousy this morning when Motorola announced that the Android 3.1 update would begin rolling out to European Xooms, bringing along with it SD card support. Motorola has taken to Twitter to quell your rage, responding to one disgruntled owner who called the company out on the American Xoom’s unusable SD card slot.
@Motorola: @portareaf Google is refining the SD card solution for U.S.-based Motorola XOOM devices & we'll share timing info as soon it’s available.
While Moto’s response gives us no definitive time frame, it does imply that SD card support is more of a matter of “when” than “if”. Sit back and relax, we have the whole summer ahead to wait.
