    Is it not possible in Honeycomb to move an App to the SD card. I am about to ship my Xoom back and there are some apps, and app data that I don't want to lose. I'd like to move them to the SD card like I do on my phone. Thanks, team!

    hi,

    it is NOT currently possible to WRITE to the SD card locally on the tablet. HC's OS structure is coded differently and can not access the card.

    you can ROOT (if you already are NOT rooted) and can access it that way. there are ROMS our there that have this. however you cant do it in stock unrooted form.

    understand your frustration. Google will update things shortly. Devs need to catch up and just change their code to allow their apps to read the /mnt/card. right now apps look at /external/card.
