We know that Google has released the Android 3.1 Honeycomb update for the Motorola XOOM tablet, and in that particular piece of good news, we covered a slew of improvements and additions made which should make it more bearable to own a Motorola XOOM. Well, for those who have already tried out the new software, they claim that it is noticeably faster compared to Android 3.0 which it shipped with.

That is certainly nice to hear, don’t you think? One of the major reasons for it being faster would be the inclusion of support for hardware graphics acceleration, with some users claiming the entire user interface being faster and more responsive – and we are all for that. After all, who would want a laggy interface that seems to have a stop-start motion especially with plenty of icons on it?

Not only that, the web browser itself is touted to be speedier than before, boasting of smoother zooming performance. Do take note that another update in Android 3.1 lies a “check now” button in the system updates menu, where it ought to make it a whole lot easier to keep tabs on a future software update.
