Google announced today some major upgrades to Honeycomb, the latest version of Android.
Via Honeycomb 3.1, Android now features support for USB devices like MP3 players and digital cameras. This allows users to transfer music and photos directly to tablets rather than though computers.
Honeycomb 3.1 also expands the range of input options to USB keyboards and mice, allowing Android tablets to more closely mimic the capabilities of PC. USB-compatible game controllers like those of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 are also supported, greatly expanding the control possibilities for Android games.
Android 3.1 also features expandable home screen widgets, improved Wi-Fi networking, and updates to Honeycomb's UI.
Android 3.1 will hit today, starting with Motorola's Xoom.
