Android 3.2 Update for Motorola XOOM Rolling Out Now in Small Batches, Build Number HTJ85B

Last week, a Google employee sent out a message through their support forums suggesting that Android 3.2 could be headed to the Motorola XOOM in just a matter of days – it’s looking like today might be the day.  We’ve heard from a couple of readers now that have received the update which includes the fancy new zooming app feature that was introduced by the Android team yesterday.  So far, our guys aren’t noticing any other major differences.

And we have been unable to pull the update to our XOOMs, so we’re thinking this could be rolling out in small batches.  Keep us posted if you receive it though!  About screen and a couple of zooming action shots after the break.  

And a couple of additional pictures of this new zoom feature:

Zoomed in.

Zoomed out.

Cheers Michael M.!

  • Thanks for the thoughts you have shared here. Moreover, I believe there are many factors which will keep your auto insurance premium lower. One is, to take into account buying automobiles that are in the good listing of car insurance organizations. Cars which are expensive will be more at risk of being lost. Aside from that insurance is also in accordance with the value of your truck, so the higher priced it is, then higher the actual premium you only pay.

  • I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    finally got the update. played around with it for a little, everything seems to run 10x smoother. apps that weren’t optimized for honeycomb before (even if it filled the screen) run silky smooth. haven tried the sd card yet. hopefully this fixed the browser crashing every 30 seconds

    The biggest feature in the 3.2 for Xoom is allegedly un-breaking Excange Activesync.  This has been a HUGE pain point for anyone foolish enough to use this platform for business.  No mail since 3.1 rolled out.  EPIC FAIL.

  • Interesting that it’s coming to wifi Xooms first, since the 3.1 update came out on the 3G Xooms first.  I wonder how long us 3G users will have to wait?

  • My wife and i were so thrilled when Michael could complete his basic research because of the precious recommendations he made from your very own web pages. It is now and again perplexing to simply find yourself offering tips and hints the rest could have been selling. We understand we have got the blog owner to be grateful to because of that. The main illustrations you made, the easy web site menu, the friendships you assist to foster – it’s many sensational, and it is making our son and us know that the concept is cool, and that’s wonderfully serious. Thank you for everything!

    Xoom Sucks it gets updates way too fast.

    • Really? What a rediculous comment! Would you rather get them way too slow?

  • does it finally include sd support?

  • Have you guys ever considered proofreading your posts before making them live for all to see?

        I’ll keep my Xoom powered off until the push an update that addresses stability and usability.

          My Xoom hasn’t ever crashed.  Sounds like you have some stupid app that causes it to be unstable.

          • Anonymous

            no stupid apps, actually did a hard reset after the 3.1 update because everything would force close on it in a ve. i have major browser stability issues. use it for 10-15 minutes and then it just shuts down. wife was trying to use it in the car on the way to vacation to post stuff to blackboard and almost threw it out of the window. actually really enjoyed it when i first bought it and used it all the time, but the browser became a super frustrating experience, especially when trying to demo it to people that were thinking about buying it.

          • I agree the stock browser is kind of buggy.  Hopefully they’ll address the problems in this update.  In contrast the Firefox browser is rather stable.  I have heard that other alternative browsers like Dolphin HD and Skyfire are stable as well.  you might want to give those a try.

            not trolling. would actually like to be able to use the Xoom, but in its current state for what i want to use it for, mainly browsing the web for research into companies that are my business prospects, it’s not as great as a netbook replacement as i was hoping for.

        How about support for proxy server?

  • Infynityx

    Wifi also enables sd card support for nonrooted users

    • I seriously hope it is enabled for rooted users as well.  That would be such bad karma to gimp physical hardware based on rooting.

  • Wifi or Verizon models?

    • I’m hearing wifi, because Verizon would have to push it to their Xooms, and would have to make an announcement. Politics…

      • I would doubt that because of the fact verizon has gotten it first everytime…politics is right and it was out first on verizon I would think we would get first batches

          Is this a.official Google update with SD card or. Motorola hacked version for SD
