Verizon tablets and Wi-Fi only Motorola Xoom will be getting the update alike. The Tiamat Kernel is presently not supportable by Android 3.1, until version 1.4.2 arrives.

Upon updating, the UI looks very much the same as before but the device becomes faster and smoother in overall functions, transitions, effects, and Multitasking. Otherwise there are several small tweaks and minor improvements to the system.
