Finally after long wait and much anticipation, Android 3.2 update for Motorola Xoom has arrived. This update was expected since mid July but took a few weeks to finally get realized. With this update, several noteworthy features would be added to the tablet. Most important of these features is the support for micro SD card, which was missing in the previous models.
Deficiency of a micro SD card slot was a huge negative point against Motorola Xoom since most of the rivals contained this feature. Now after Motorola has also updated its device with this facility, the tablet would certainly improve its position in the market. Users would now be able to insert the micro SD card in the slot which is available at the top of the device which can then be manipulated in the Storage breakdown in the settings. Good thing is that you don’t need to go through the mounting process to enjoy the external memory support. This is a simple plug and play option so no technical knowledge is required. Memory access and content transfer can be performed simultaneously.
The content would be organized according to the respective applications such as videos, images and music. Direct navigation and manipulation of the external memory would be possible with the help of standard file manager application such as Astro. This is quit similar to the content management on your mobile phone.
This is certainly a great addition to Motorola Xoom, a device which has already been receiving quite positive reviews from the customers throughout the world. The only problem existed in storage limitation and that has now been removed. Most probably this would not alter the existing applications and hardware features of the device.
Another minor update can be viewed as well, by which the apps can get a zoom feature. By the utilization of this feature, those apps which have been specifically designed for small screen can be zoomed and used on bigger screen. Although the zooming of applications would inevitably result in the lowering of overall resolution, but the effect is not much bad and remains within reasonable limits. Besides, zooming of certain social networking applications is a must. For the rest of the applications, users can prefer to use them in small screen mode.
So the bottom line is that the incorporation of these new features in Motorola Xoom would certainly increase the worth and demand of the device.
