Verizon Motorola Xoom to get Android 3.2 in the coming weeks

We already know that the Wi-Fi-only version of the Motorola Xoom is being currently upgraded to Android 3.2 Honeycomb. While reiterating that the upgrade for the Wi-Fi tablet is rolled-out in phases, Motorola also said on Twitter that Verizon’s Xoom would get Android 3.2, too.

It didn’t say when exactly, but the upgrade should be available to Verizon’s users starting “the coming weeks.” The new version of the OS will bring a “Zoom to fill screen” option (which allows apps not designed for tablets to perform and look better), and support for MicroSD cards.

The 3G plus Wi-Fi Motorola Xoom is currently offered by Verizon for $599.99 on contract. An upgrade to enable LTE should be also made available to Verizon Xoom users, but this will be a hardware upgrade, not a software one (which means you’ll have to send your tablet to Verizon, and wait for it to come back with a new LTE radio in it).

    Why would I want Android 2.3 on my Xoom?  I want 3.2.
