Those of you using a Motorola Xoom over Verizon’s network, take heart. The wait for Honeycomb is finally drawing to a close. According to Phandroid.com, Verizon’s begun rolling out the long-awaited honeycomb update onto select Motorola Xoom tablets.
So what sort of stuff can you expect with this update, anyway? Aside from the standard stuff, I mean. It’s already a given that Honeycomb’s going to bring improved compatibility, and a number of optimizations to whatever tablet it’s packed onto. That seems to me a pretty standard feature of any Honeycomb update, truthfully. I’m sure many of you are eager to know what else you’ll be receiving when you download the update.
While reports on just what the update will include are kind of sparse, word is that in addition to the above it’s going to enable the Xoom’s SD card slot, as well as the ability to sync media to and from the card. Additionally, there’ll be a new “zoom to fill” mode so that non-native apps can be resized for display on the Xoom’s screen. That first piece of the update kind of confuses me a bit- why would you ship a tablet with an SD card slot that isn’t usable?
Anyway, as I said, we don’t know a whole lot about the Xoom’s Honeycomb update quite yet. I’ll let you know more as soon as I find out.
