Have to ask because the wife was talking to her father and he told her the other day that his friend was working with a beta of the 2nd Gen Xoom. I read the Android sites almost daily and so far, I have yet to even *hear* about a possible second gen model, let alone a release timeframe. Although after playing with one today, I must say I think they dropped the ball with the small pin type charger. The store model @ BestBuy charger tip was bent about 45 degrees and I hope that would be one of the possible changes to any future models. Anyone else hear about anything yet? Even any rumors?
