    Isn't it ironic that when I go to motorola.com/Xoom to read about getting flash for my Xoom I can't see it because their website REQUIRES flash?:rolleyes:

    The additional info available from Motor says that Flash will be a Market download and more info is coming very soon.

    I read that from the article but ironic nonetheless.

    So can you get update if you never activated your device?

    Is there a way to force it to check for the update. Mine says that the last check was done about 6 hours ago.

    I feel like scrolling on websites are smoother than they were. Unfortunately, I don't have anything to compare it too. If someone has access to two xooms, could you compare browser scrolling with one before and one after the update?

    Just got the update. It's a shame that it didn't include the enabling of the SD card slot.

    I don't have two xooms to compare but scrolling seems smoother. Some websites would have to re-render the images after scrolling but not anymore. Could be a coincidence but I don't think so.

    I got the update but I'm not really sure what it did. Did it just prep the Xoom for flash?
