Motorola Xoom 3G Upgrade To Android 3.2 Iminent

All signs are pointing to an Android 3.2 upgrade of the Motorola Xoom 3G tablet happening this week. Verizon has sent out one of their notorious .pdf files describing the changes coming with the next software update.

The Verizon Wireless information highlights screen scrolling compatibility mode, SD card support, and adoptive streaming support for movies, in addition to the bells and whistles thrown in with Android 3.2. The update, identified by the number HTJ85, is believed to start rolling out tomorrow.

More after the break

As liliputing points out, they’re not identifying the update as Android 3.2 but it includes the latest big new feature for Honeycomb which is the ability to adjust the pixel density in apps that may not otherwise be optimized for tablets.

Of course many Motorola Xoom 3G owners will be ecstatic to learn that the microSD dummy port that they got when they bought their Xoom tablet will come alive like magic after this update. It’s hard to believe that Motorola was in such a rush to get the tablets to market that they conveniently forgot to enable the microSD slot.

Although the Motorola Xoom was the first Honeycomb tablet commercially available, this latest software update brings it up  to speed with the likes of the Toshiba Thrive, Acer Iconia and Asus eeePad Transformer.
