Android 3.2 Issues with Asus Transformer and Xoom

Before decided to update you Asus Transformer 10.1 you should know there’s several users said this Android 3.2 is still buggy, and worse than previous Honeycomb 3.1 update, after done with upgrade process they encountered issues such as bad pointer animation, trackpad response even worse, new zooming feature can’t work as promises, no Netflix installed, multi touch fail to work etc. For me it’s better to wait until Asus release bug fixes for this before updating my Eee Pad Transformer to official Android 3.2. And for Xoom WiFi version the unofficial Honeycomb 3.2 version still has issue with SD card, Xoom detect your SD card as read only so you can do everything. Motorola Wi-Fi version of Xoom 32 GB available in Canada via Telus for $599 and Best Buy for $499. Xoom 3G from Verizon carrier is lucky enough, as official Android 3.2 Honeycomb has been available. We have to wait for Motorola to release their official update for Canadian Xoom users.
