Tag Archive: Tablet

So I was working on my XOOM and just got a notice pop up that there is an update waiting for install….
Hit the restart and install button and 1 minute later I’m on 3.2.

Don’t know if it helped much for an issue I’ve had with Exchange (Exchange 2003 is bad, doesn’t work fine on my OX lion as well) but overall seems to be working perfectly fine.

changes

Things I havent tested yet

  • 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
  • POP 3 HTML emails will display in their entirety
  • Bluetooth is now supported in Google Talk
  • 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
  • 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

Taken from SD shamelessly 🙂
Seems like a decent tablet, I would get one for the price if I didn’t have the Nook Color and an iPad…

First – Linky – eBay Item Deal

So I started writing a quick review/preview about my new (purchased last week) Nook Color yesterday and today I see this on my favorite/hated deals site (SlickDeals.net… hated as I spend too much because of it)
The idea is that you can take this amazing device (Great eBook reader) by itself and ROOT it and load a full Android version or simply root it and utilize android 2.1 with what you have.

It’s amazing to see how people overcame the hardware constraints of the device (only one button) and got it to work as a full blown tablet.

Anyhow eBay daily deal $249 + $50 instent coupon = $199 + Tax….
