by Reads (4,514)

The original Honeycomb tablet, the Motorola Xoom, is now going to be the first Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet as the update to the latest version of Android for tablets is now available to Motorola’s large-screen Android device.

Motorola XoomSo what goodies does Android 3.2 bring? For starters, it features the new and recently unveiled app zoom/stretch mode that aids developers in scaling smartphone apps up to the big tablet screen. Also, it finally brings microSD card support to the Xoom, which until this point had a useless card slot that did not recognize microSD cards.

So what about the Verizon LTE support first promised at CES, detailed at the Xoom launch, and originally planned for May? Well, Motorola just received FCC approval for the 4G LTE module, suggesting the upgrade could be just around the corner.

As detailed at launch, users will have to send their Xoom away to Motorola for the upgrade. Back then, Motorola claimed it would provide free FedEx shipping, and a Verizon FAQ claimed the process would take approximately six business days.
