    Only noticed when I tried to update, only had it 3 days. So looks like new ones are getting shipped with the latest version. Anyone else think the power cable is too short btw

    3.1 is the newest update, which is what the xoom got. 3.01 isn't much of anything. I believe 3.01 is just acer's original firmware.

    3.1 is not available yet only 3.01.

    Should only be a couple of weeks though before 3.1 is here.

    Yea, but I just got off the phone after an hour with Acer about my 1 day old a500. It came with 3.01 but this is not what the are pushing out. They are OTA'ing kernal 1.4xxx where my machine has 1.01xxx. The screen problem, GPS, Microsoft Exchange are all in the newer kernal.

    They said I have to wait until it is pushed to me, no way to force it.

    +1 on the extension cord solution.

    After looking into aftermarket adapters it's really the only sure solution out there.

    don't know what they were thinking with the extremely short power cord! Just don't make sense. Maybe to save some pvc plastic and the environment?
