According to Fudzilla's sources, the second Xoom is done and dusted, with its 10-inch screen getting a sizeable increase from 1280 x 800 to 2048 x 1536, ditching the 16:9 aspect ratio for a 4:3 one.
Android 3.2 is an unexpected little update, especially with Ice Cream Sandwich coming later this year. But good on Google for making its less-than-amazing Android tablets a little bit better all the time until that major new hotness happens.
It takes a lot of faith to shell out something like $600 for a 4G LTE tablet that isn't able to get on the 4G network. But that's what anyone who bought a non-WiFi Motorola Xoom did. And according to a tipster over at Phandroid, their patience has finally paid off. Because they received an e-mail instructing how to…

Verizon Wireless is pushing out a software update for Motorola Xooms today, which will allow users to download Flash Player 10.2 from the Android Market when it becomes available next Friday, the 18th of March. The update also includes clock adjustments for daylight savings time. [Verizon]
Future Motorola Xoom owners who enjoy messing around with their gear, rooting their gear or otherwise modifying it in some way, take note! Motorola is promising to accept your tablet with open arms during the "send it away" 4G upgrade process, no matter what.
We know that a Wi-Fi-only Xoom is out there, lurking. And according to Droid Life, it's going to be showing up soon at Sam's Club for the entirely reasonable price of $540. Assuming it's a 32GB model, that undercuts iPad 2 by a cool sixty bucks.
Apps are the most important part of any tablet right now. But great apps need great hardware to run.
It's taken almost a year to get here. The first tablet to matter since the original iPad. The Xoom is the first real Android tablet, arriving ahead of the iPad 2 by a hair. Since it's living in the "year of iPad 2," as Apple put it, it seemed only fitting to wait to drop judgment until we'd seen everything the iPad 2…
Beauty, as they say, is only skin deep. So let's take a look at the Motorola Xoom's hypetastic insides, shall we? There aren't too many surprises in iFixit's tablet teardown, but if you want an up close look at that sweet Tegra 2—and a cheat to bump it up to 4G hotness right away—head on over there now. [iFixit]
Some disappointing news for those awaiting the arrival of Motorola's tablet: its new page on Verizon's site suggests it won't have Flash at launch. A bit of tiny text on the product page says "Adobe Flash expected Spring 2011," presumably meaning that Moto's waiting for Adobe to roll out the mobile-optimized Flash…
Best Buy has a pre-order page for the Motorola Xoom, which we're going to assume officializes the price and release date of the first best Android 3.0 tablet. It's going to cost $800, which is a good chunk of change, and release on February 24th, which is this week. You can find out more about the Xoom at Best Buy here
A leaked series of documents, purportedly some kind of instructions for the users of the upcoming Motorola Xoom—which I will call a user's guide—is entirely unremarkable save for the information it doesn't contain.
When Steve Jobs introduced the iPad last January, the biggest surprise wasn't the actual product. (Many shrugged and called the iPad a "bigger iPhone.") It was the price: Just $500.
