The latest, most up-to-scratch iteration of Google’s tablet-optimised Android Honeycomb operating system is currently being rolled out to Motorola Xoom devices, it has been confirmed.
Google has begun pushing Android 3.2 to a small number of Motorola Xoom slates, though early reports indicate that only owners of the Wi-Fi-only model of the Xoom are receiving the update love. No word yet on when contract models will follow suit, but it’s likely they are still undergoing network testing.
The update is fairly minor but adds some useful enhancements nonetheless, such as options to either ‘stretch to fill’ or ‘zoom to fill’ Android apps that have been created with smartphones in mind to fill up larger screen real estate on tablets - similar to how iPhone apps do on the iPad.
There’s also support for smaller, seven-inch tablets on board, so there’s a slim chance yet that the original Samsung Galaxy Tab may also get some Honeycomb action in the near future.
Xoom users can check for updates manually on their devices by going to the settings menu. As always, you are strongly advised to back-up your data first in case something goes awry.
