Although the rumblings of a forth coming update for the Motorola Xoom have been out there for a few days now, it's never actually been announced by Verizon in any sort of manner. Unless of course, you consider posting up the .pdf with the change log a quite unveiling. While we still don't have a date for when it's to be release -- it's coming at some point so we'll just have to wait it out. In the meantime, the changes are listed below:
Web Browsing and Data Access
- Access and stay connected to Wi-Fi networks with added Proxy support.
- SSL data transfer with websites is now supported.
- WPA Pre-Shared Key pass-phrases are now supported when using the device as a Mobile Hotspot.
- Supports Google Widevine DRM and HDCP.
Email and Messaging
- POP3 HTML emails will display in their entirety.
- Bluetooth® is now supported in Google TalkTM.
Additional Device Features
- Encrypted passwords can be entered during power up.
- Calendar events will remain up to date after an installed software update.
- Application storage errors will not appear unless the device has reached maximum storage capacity.
- Safely dock the MOTOROLA XOOM into the docking adapter without interruption. + Ability to add and use a Bluetooth mouse. + A shortcut key for the Bluetooth keyboard has been added. + View and import pictures from digital cameras with Picture Transfer Protocol.
- When using the device in accessibility mode, menus will no longer prompt with sounds.
Rather large update that fixes quite a few issues really. Hopefully we'll see a roll out soon since it's been quite a while since Xoom owners have felt the update love.
