Motorola seems to have fixed the microSD card reader problem with an update not yet available in the US

The Motorola Xoom was the first tablet to sport Honeycomb or Android 3.0 when it was launched back in Feb this year. But it did not have a working MicroSD card reader then. Even a 3.1 update in May did not solve it. Finally we might have a non US update that will fix this problem – as reported by Netbooknews.

“SD Card activation” with Honeycomb 3.1 on non-US devices is expected to make the microSD card reader workable again. Europe will get it sometimes next month.

Availability dates of the fix in US are not confirmed yet, but a Twitter update from Motorola says Google is refining the SD card solution for U.S.-based Motorola XOOM devices, with a promise of more info shortly.
