Motorola XOOM Update [Discussion Thread]
A Motorola XOOM update will be made available tomorrow that brings a bunch of fixes to the device including Bluetooth support on Google Talk and for a mouse, proxy support, and a new picture transfer protocol.
– No need to freak out and worry about backtracking your rooted XOOM just yet. Once the update is out, we can probably expect someone to grab the file and then someone to find away to flash it. And if you’ve simply unlocked your device, then you should be able to receive the update without issue.

The one that I haven't heard anything about ... safely dock without interruption?
Debian, XOOM & Droid Enthusiast
Well, I would assume the cursor would only be there when the mouse is connected, not there all the time...

Also curious about the dock "issue", what would that be referring to? Is the wifi connection issue related to the 3G models only? I don't have any problems with my wifi....
Wifi Xoom, rooted, OC @1400 ---- Launchpad 1.1.0 kernel
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot..... Just root already!! (You know you want to)
Or those of outside the US

Also someone was just asking if he could import pictures straight from his camera
how bout some stock SDcard support?
That should be at the top of the list... Course this looks like a Moto update and not a Google update.
I wonder if with the new mouse support the new keyboard folio case will have a trackpad.
I would say wifi models will get the update pretty quickly as there is no carrier approval.
