Android Honeycomb 3.1 packed with updates; gets USB mouse, camera support

Today Google formally announced the upcoming Android 3.1 Honeycomb update at its I/O event in San Francisco. The new release adds a number of UI and core application features as well as support for external hardware like keyboards, mice, and cameras.
The new 3.1 user interface gets resizable home screen widgets and a number of tweaks that Google says will make Android tablets easier to use. User-settable delay for long-pressing items and a new, scrollable recent apps list being just two of the new tweaks. An updated home button, while still appearing the same, will now take the user to the most recently used home screen panel when pressed in an app instead of always taking the user to the center panel.
New USB and Bluetooth support will allow Android Honeycomb tablet users to mix and match multiple USB and Bluetooth input devices, such as keyboards and mice. Honeycomb 3.1 includes support for a single mouse button (with an optional scroll wheel) and will allow users to perform typical point, drag, select, scroll, and hover functions. Joystick and gamepad controller support has also been added.
One addition to Honeycomb that I am personally excited about is the new Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) support. PTP will allow users to connected a digital camera directly to a tablet so that the tablet can import all of the camera's photos.
The core Android apps have also been tweaked. The browser gets a new, extended quick controls UI; enhanced CSS 3D, animation, and positioning support; and HTML5 video playback. Web pages can now be saved for offline viewing, and the browser also offers faster zooming and support for hardware accelerated plug-ins.
Other updated apps include contacts, which gets full text searching, and email, which now sends muti-part MIME replies and forwards that include full HTML as well as text-only versions of messages.
The Android 3.1 Honeycomb update is supposed to start going out to Motorola XOOM owners today, though it will take a few weeks for all devices to receive the update. We'll see 3.1 available for other devices like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 soon, as well.
