    Is it sad that I'm super excited about resizable widgets? Ha. USB host of course is awesome, and any fixes to the smoothness of the OS are great. But dang, I like customizing, and I really have been waiting for resizable widgets lol.

    I wonder if this is the reason they pulled the earlier update. Is it just me or will it be weird using a big controller like that of the 360 with a screen as small as a Xoom. I hven't used a controller + device with a screen smaller than 17 inches in 10 years!

    has anyone tested to see if this installs on xooms with the over clocked kernel, with out a hitch or will this brick it or require unrooting

    Really? They announce USB hosting, which is probably the single thing that was keeping tablets from replacing laptops, and you aren't impressed?

    Resizable widgets should be nice, Android can look a bit of a mess sometimes due to lack of uniformity with them.

    It would be good if it was possible to border them the same or similar too. I believe LP has some sort of skinning function, but I like the stock 3.0.1 experience for now...

    Also not mentioned, but hopefully present in 3.1, will be FLash enhancements.Remember that Adobe was touting its latest XOOM Flash update as bringing full hardware accelerated HD Flash to the XOOM when 3.1 comes out. SO we will see if we notice any Flash improvements. That would be big for me.

    While I'm obviously excited for the update, I seriously don't understand why it wouldn't enable the microSD slot. That literally makes no sense to me whatsoever.

    So I won't get the update or the music b/c I have a xoom with wifi, it's only going to verizon users first.........is that correct? If so, how @#$@#$ stupid is that!

    My 3g Xoom still says no update available. Bummer!

    I personally wouldn't worry about that just yet. I have the Verizon version, but when the very first update rolled out, I got it, and I still hadn't contacted Verizon to activate any service, so at that time, I essentially just had a Wi-Fi XOOM.

    I was given the Verizon 3g Xoom as a gift but never got it activated as I really only needed wifi but I was very impatient. So I just called Verizon to activate the 3g service at $20/month. I plan on getting the update and then immediately cancelling the service. I'll report back on the update as soon as it goes through.

    Just give me the $20.00 and I will get the update for you. Shortly after they release it somebody will post it so you can manually install it. No root required.

    My browser is faster. The market is still stinky but the USB host is pretty cool.
