The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Nothing makes me happier than some good old Bluetooth Suppory….except for a good speel check applikation.

  2. When are you guys gonna update your xoom picture? :P

  3. Suppory! <-D

  4. U suck @ photoshop :) browser and music icons…

  5. Can’t believe it doesn’t address the SD card slot. Love my XOOM, but that needs fixin before anything else.

  6. You couldn’t use WPA-PSK? Glad I didn’t get a Xoom.

    1. I can on my wifi version…

    2. That only applies to using the ‘hotspot’ function on the Verizon units. The Xoom itself supports WPA-PSK for connecting to wireless networks.

  7. Come on Moto. My XOOM is my ever faithful companion and rarely leaves my side. But doing and update without fixing the SD slot.. that takes real nerve :( :( :(

  8. Still nothing!

  9. You know this isnt happening right? Check motorolas support forum.
