Google Movies working on Wi-Fi-only Motorola XOOM as well
One of the new features that the Android 3.1 Honeycomb update brought along the way was the ability to watch flicks via Google's very own movie rental service. However, it is beyond our knowledge why the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi-only model was left out of the fun and was not given access to the Movies hub straight away.

Fortunately, after more than a month of anticipation, Google has finally decided to smooth things out and has lifted the restriction. Many Wi-Fi-only Motorola XOOM owners are reporting that they can now access Google Movies through the Android Market, and even though some users are still experiencing technical road bumps, others have been using the service just fine.

Hopefully, all glitches will be gone soon and Google Movies will make its way to more devices. If you have managed to get the service working on your Wi-Fi-only Motorola XOOM, do not hesitate to brag about it by leaving a comment below.

Unfortunately I am one if the people that doesn't have it yet. Last night it appeared as an app that needed updated in the market but when I go to update it, it doesn't install. I'm sure the kinks will be worked out within a few days though.

What am I missing? I've got 3.1 on my VZW Xoom, but can't locate Google Movies in the market :(

Movies? Really? Does anyone still use that outdated technology?
