    Hopefully a Netflix hack beats it so folks can save money. The prices seem a few steps from reality of what people would pay and an impediment to growth of the program.

    Now THAT is a great perspective, but only works IF Google and Nvidia push for the Netflix app like Qualcomm has. No choice to use Netflix suggests a narrow-minded effort in forcing people to spend $5 a pop, when they could spend a fraction with a Netflix account AND have the option of the download service when needed or wanted.

    No option suggests the lack of Netflix is very intentional and not the same as Apple having iTunes and Netflix as an option.

    I got my 3.1 update about 2 hours ago on my wifi only Xoom. Stock and not rooted. First day buyer.
    I'm in OKC.

    It all depends on when the tablet was manufactured. It may not come with the latest version already pre installed. Just go buy it at best buy. The update will come when it comes.

    I downloaded the latest flash application yesterday. I didn't get the upgrade until today.

    Just got the 3.1 update using the date gag figuring if I was going to get it I would get it just after midnight. I have a 3g Xoom that was bought around week 4 after release in New Hampshire. Have 10.3 flash and movie section in the marketplace. No invite for the Google music beta, and I haven't tested the Bluetooth keyboard or mouse interface yet so I can't speak to that just yet.

  14. I don't know if ya'll had this problem, but the market never seemed to know if I had downloaded an app or not. It would always say "download". Now that problem seems to solved. Wonder if that was addressed or not with this 3.1 update? Now bring on the Netflix app! SD/4g would be nice too!

    Got my update @ 11:58pm here in WI. I'm assuming that it was the 3.1 that we're all talking about - I got a system update message while playing Angry Birds and it did the shutdown and whatnot. Now I gotta go back and try to find that dang egg in the game. :)

    Plug it in and hit install :) . I just got mine, haven't tested it but this post was painful to type. If its possible, the typing in this forum might even be slower.

    I posted some findings in the accessories forum on a HD dock I opened up and I'm not entirely sure its possible to use the USB for data while charging on the dock. The USB port is seeking a signal from the dock to activate the contacts on the bottom of the tablet to charge through. If its using the data terminals and if the signal the dock provides conflicts with the data signal, which I speculate might be the case if the signal is nothing more than continuity (low resistance), then I'm not sure how they would get it to work. But I'm not an electrical/computer engineer so I can't say with certainty. I do hope I'm wrong, but I'm not going to hold my breath...

    Got mine this morning. Looked at the new market but that's about it. It couldn't have come on a busier morning! Hopefully I will get some play time with it soon. 3G XOOM but used as Wi-Fi only (never had it on Verizon's network)

    yes i used the camera to connect to it. the gallery pops up and you can move things to/fro the cam, etc. works very well. i have the moto connection kit cable however there are a few options on fleabay. make sure its an OTG cable (i,e, pin 5 must not be grounded.)

    I got my update this morning and for the most part its a big yawn.

    The only change I see is in the stock email app where the pull down menu to change accounts now has a much larger font. Which may be good considering my new glasses. Also when I select an email the selected email is high lighted in green.

    In the market - no movies tab like I saw someone else said they had with wifi only model. What is this about? Can I rentmovies like Netflix or something?

    I don't care about USB host on the xoom. This USB port is small and I can't plug my thumb drives into it. Why else would I want USB host for?

    Got mine this morning for the wifi only xoom and no movies tab in the market nor movies app available.
