Motorola Xoom gets Android 3.2

Motorola Xoom gets Android 3.2A handful of Motorola Xoom users o’er the Atlantic have reportedly received a sickly sweet dose of the latest version of Honeycomb, namely Android 3.2.

It’s not entirely clear in what capacity the update is being rolled out, with some suggesting that Wi-Fi only users are being used as guinea pigs in a small-scale test.

So what’s in the figurative box?

There’s a new ‘zoom’ feature for smartphone apps running on Honeycomb. Previously, smartphone apps were simply stretched to fill the screen. That’ll be a welcome addition, as there are only a few hundred apps specifically developed for Honeycomb.

The update also brings better widgets, faster hardware acceleration, and – finally, a mere four months after release – SD card support.

This is expected to be one of the last incremental updates before Android unites us all in a big Ice Cream Sandwich later in the year.

I've manually checked the update about 50 times between 11PM EST and now... still no update. Seems to be too many people reporting they have received it to be a hoax, the roll out must be more controlled than it was for 3.1, which I was able to immediately manually update.
