The Motorola XOOM 3G will soon join the ranks of its Wi-Fi only sibling and the ASUS Transformer, as it is set to receive an update to Android 3.2.
The software update HTJ85, which is said to be coming in the approaching days, will bring the tablet microSD card support, access to Google Movie video rentals, and the “zoom to fill screen” option for non-tablet optimized apps. The 15.4MB Honeycomb update will be available pending the results of a soak test that is said to occur any day now.
Android Honeycomb 3.2 may be the last version of Honeycomb before the release of Android Ice Cream Sandwich, which will merge the smartphone and tablet versions of Android.
This is not the only update destined for the XOOM 3G, which was the first tablet to be sold with Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It was confirmed last week that owners of the tablet would begin receiving information detailing how to upgrade their device to 4G, though the advancement won’t be available until September. Once this process is complete, the 10.1-inch XOOM will accompany the only other tablet on Verizon’s 4G network, the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
