Curious where you heard/read there would be an update released tonight.
And are you talking about individual apps that would be pushed, or an incremental OS update?
Also, is it a staggered release, or all Xooms at once will get it?
I did say I was curious.

Eh, lame or not... it's "progress", right?
It gets us a step closer to having Flash, and beyond that, we now have confirmation that we can self-install Flash the moment it's in the market. We won't have to wait for another push from Motorola...

I checked Settings, About Tablet, System Updates before midnight and it reported I was up to date, with last check at 1:15 pm. Now that it's after midnight it says it last checked March 10. Anyone know how frequently it checks for updates?
I don't see a way to manually check from Settings, but I did try rebooting to see if that would force a check... it didn't. Oh well, sleep is taking over so maybe I'll wake to find the Xoom Fairy visited overnight! :-)
