The Toshiba Thrive Android tablet has received its update to Android 3.2. In addition to the version bump, you're also getting:
- Enables an improved compatibility mode enhancing the way applications originally designed for smaller screen devices appear and function on the larger tablet display.
- Improves screen rotation acceleration.
- Adds extended screen support API, giving developers more precise control over the user interface across a range of Android-powered devices.
Thrive owners can snag the update in the tablet's update app. Do note that if you use the Android Market widget, it might disappear because of a naming change. You can add it back after the update.

Does it/will include Netflix??
Got my update yesterday. New Netflix app is sweet.
It's had Netflix support for a while now.
Anyone know if swype has been updated to a newer version? I'd install now but left my power cord at home.
I am not getting the update, I am in Colombia and my model is AT105. Its a shame.
The only bad thing I have found is that using a USB stick to transfer large files to the device's built-in storage or SD card is not working at all - the File Manager keeps complaining that the system is examining filesystems and no file operations can be performed at this time. I would say this is a dealbreaker, except that my experiemce with these transfers in Honeycomb 3.1 was that the files were transfered but the USB stick was left with a corrupted filesystem, so I'd rather have my tablet not transfering files than corrupting the USB stick.
Anyone know if it's possible yet to play a GoPRO HD Hero video file yet on the Thrive? I loved the tablet, and need an SD card slot; however, the lack of native support to watch the files on the Thrive forced me to return it. Waiting until a tablet can do this before I jump in on one.
