Motorola XOOM confirmed for Honeycomb 3.2 update, Verizon users getting it in

Some owners of the Wi-Fi-only version of the tablet have already reported getting the update, which brings new features like screen compatibility mode, optimizing the way phone apps are displayed on a tablet. It will result in a new “zoom to fill” viewing mode, sizing up the app to fit the larger screen. In addition, the version improves support for 7-inch tablets and enhances the performance of the few slates running on Qualcomm chips like the Huawei MediaPad. It also finally enables full support for the SD card slot. Have you already gotten the update? Feel free to share your experience in the comments below.

fu motorola, regards Australia.... I really wish I could say something positive about Motorola right now. They released some really awesome products (Atrix + Xoom) at the beginning of the year and its now 7 months down the track and the level of support is worse than a donkey's d**k on a BBQ. Whats more, any slightly negative feedback on the Motorola Owners Forum is met with an instant ban from the forum. Matt & Mark should wake up to themselves and stop being hand fcuked puppets - infact maybe the whole of Motorola should do the same and actually start dealing with Europe, Australia and the other internationals waiting for the 3.1 (or 3.2) updates for their Xooms.. The real looser out of all of this would have to be Google. They pinned their Honeycomb hopes on the Xoom, and what have Motorola done?? sweet FA. .... and while you're at it Moto, how about Gingerbread on the Atrix for everyone.

After reading this article, I checked my Xoom, and the 3.2 update prompt was waiting for my response. The upgrade was effortless and took only a few minutes. Finally get to use that SD card without resorting to a hack!

I'm more interested in when we'll finally be getting the 4G upgrade we were promised. With the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 coming out with 4G, I'm feeling somewhat cheated.
