Here's an interesting tidbit of information for the XOOM owners out there: there may be a system update heading your way within the next few days that bumps you up to Android 3.2. Details are pretty scarce right now, but here's what we can tell you: in the comments of AOSP issue number 16992 - which is in regards to the lack of Exchange support post-3.1 update on the XOOM - one line stands out. The line simply states that "there should be a 3.2 update coming within days, and that should help those of you with Xoom [sic]." Now, while it may not be a lot to go on, and there is no confirmation of the source aside from the fact that s/he appears to be a Google employee - this is still quite promising information.

Aside from bringing support for 7 inch tablets, Android 3.2 is primarily a bug fix update. Given that, I'm sure this will be a welcome update to XOOM owners - especially if it fixes that pesky Exchange bug.

    I really hope the same update for the Asus EeePad Transformer. Some issues need to be fix.

    I really hope the same update for acer iconia. Some issues need to be fix.. J/k, but I do hope it comes soon. And I hope all 3 tablets plus the samsung ones get netflix streaming (by august 1st would be Rad!)

    It would be nice if they were to enable the SD card.

    Only for the US Google experience XOOM no doubt since the rest of the world is only just beginning to get a 3.1 rollout

  • Epsilon

    Well Samsung one will get an update soonish to accommodate Touchwiz. Hopefully they fix the keyboard dock issue as well

    I still haven't received the 3.1 update here in the UK. Can't really see getting 3.2 anytime soon.

    I've been tempted to root the Xoom and install 3.1 that way, but I would prefer if it was just released officially.

    I would just like a stock device with SD Card support, ad-hoc connections and a working Netflix/Hulu experience.
