Google released Android 3.2 Honeycomb without much fanfare. The Asus EeePad Transformer, which is the most popular Android Honeycomb based tablet out there, got the update last week. Now, Motorola and Verizon have started rolling out the Android 3.2 update for the first ever Honeycomb tablet, the XOOM 3G.
The Android 3.2 update brings some new features, and some much needed performance and stability improvements for the core apps. First and foremost, HC 3.2 brings a screen scaling compatibility mode, which is similar to the one found in iPad. On a single tap, users can double the pixel of the incompatible app, making it usable to a certain extent. Something is better than nothing, after all!
Post this update, XOOM owners can also finally make use of the SD card slot present in the tablet. There are also improvements in Google Movie rentals, streaming support and Exchange ActiveSync.
Motorola has already started rolling out the update, and aims to complete the roll-out within the next 2 weeks. Impatient XOOM owners can find the required files to update their tablet to Android 3.2 Honeycomb, over at XDA forums.
