[Rumor] Is Android 3.2 Coming To The Motorola XOOM In A Few Days?

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.

Google Updates Android Platform Distribution Chart Again - Eclair On The Decline, Gingerbread Continuing To Make Headway

As is its wont at this time of the month, Google has updated its Android platform distribution chart, and while there aren't any real shockers to be found, it's still nice to see which versions of Android are most popular.

Distribution table Distribution chart

Let's start from the top of the table: as should be expected, the number of devices running Android 1.5 (Cupcake) and 1.6 (Donut) is steadily dropping, as more and more users upgrade their devices or receive software updates. 2.1 (Éclair) is continuing to loose headway, with 17.5% of Android users running it.

Moving on to more modern versions of the OS, Froyo (Android 2.2) is still the king of the hill where stats are concerned, claiming 59.4% of users.

Words With Friends Gets Updated, Now Optimized For Honeycomb Tablets

Exactly one week ago we told you that Words With Friends dropped Honeycomb support. At the time, there was little explanation as to what happened (even Zynga support staff was completely clueless), but things are starting to make a bit more sense now (albeit not much).

Zynga pushed an update to Words With Friends today that brought something new to the table: full Honeycomb support. I'm still not entirely sure why they decided to drop Honeycomb support for one week - but it doesn't really matter now, as WWF is now fully playable on your Android-powered tablet.

Ignore those two losses on the side - I forgot I was playing and lost by default.
