For Android there are two versions of the operating system. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the latest version is for phones, and Android 3.1 Honeycomb is the latest version for tablets. However, it looks like the new Android 3.2, a new minor update to Honeycomb, is ready for the Motorola Xoom in the coming days.
The comment was made by the Google Employee in the discussion thread for one Android issue at Google’s official bug tracker. The Googler’s comment in its entirety was:
“There should be a 3.2 update coming within days, and that should help those of you with the Xoom.”
So there you have it. Huawei may have been right after all about the imminent release of Android 3.2 that its upcoming MediaPad tablet will supposedly run.
Android 3.2 won’t bring any major new user-facing features. It will, however, apparently be the first Honeycomb version to fully support 7-inch tablets. It will also be the first Honeycomb build to support Qualcomm processors. Up until now Android Honeycomb tablets have all had 1280×800 screen resolution and used Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processors. So the new version will make room for some differentiation on the part of tablet manufacturers, and that can only be a good thing.
While we can’t know for sure what is going to happen, we can just wait for few more days and every thing will be clear. Maybe Android 3.2 is closer than we ever thought.
