An update started rolling out to the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi earlier today, bumping the build number up to HTK75D. While we're not entirely sure of everything that this update brings, there is one obvious difference: the Market.

Yep, a long-awaited update to the tablet Market is definitely in full effect, and it looks nearly identical to the phone Market. This is no coincidence, either-- remember the minor update that El Goog pushed to phones last week? It turns out that is the same exact version that's being pushed to the XOOM. Yeah, that means you can simply download the 3.1.5 apk and install it on your tablet to get the new Market. That's all kinds of win.

Update: There seems to be a minor issue after pushing the new Market. After I first installed it on my Tab 10.1, I had two Market icons -- one for the old Market, one for the new. I rebooted my Tab, which left one icon intact, but it was for the old Market. After opening it, I can only call the new Market by tapping "My Apps," after which I can use the new Market like I normally would. Anyone else having this issue?

Aside from the familiar interface, the updated Market brings a few much-needed additions to the tablet experience, including support for portrait mode and the ability to write reviews in-app, something that both the web and phone variants have had for quite some time.
