Motorola-Xoom-Tablet1

According to a tipster at Droid-life, the Motorola XOOM will be receiving a (relatively minor) system update tomorrow, and no - it doesn't include SD card support (exactly why, we can't even begin to guess). Here's the list of changes and additions:

  • Access and stay connected to Wi-Fi networks with added Proxy support
  • SSL data transfer with websites is now supported
  • WPA Pre-Shared Key pass-phrases are now supported when using the device as a Mobile Hotspot
  • POP 3 HTML emails will display in their entirety
  • Bluetooth is now supported in Google Talk
  • Application storage errors will not appear unless the device has reached maximum storage capacity
  • Safely dock the Motorola XOOM into the docking adapter without interruption
  • Ability to add and use a Bluetooth mouse
  • View and import pictures from digital cameras with Picture Transfer Protocol
  • When using the device in accessibility mode, menus will no longer prompt with sounds

Generally, this update seems to fix a lot of bugs and add support for some more technical items - nothing to get too worked up about. But Bluetooth mouse support and Bluetooth in Google Talk are certainly welcome additions to the XOOM's feature set. The update should be available tomorrow.

Update from Artem: Here's the official update document, which also adds "Encrypted passwords can be entered during power up," which doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now (passwords for encrypted devices are already entered at power-up). If this, however, means I only need to enter the password once instead of twice, I will be ecstatic.

    Explain what it is what Bluetooth does in Google Talk, please?

      I would think it is used when video chatting. Would be handy if you're in a loud environment.
