Default Loving That New Xoom? Get Ready to Ship it Away.

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.droid-life.com/2011/02/23/official-details-of-the-4g-lte-upgrade-process-for-the-motorola-xoom/' target='_blank'>http://www.droid-life.com/2011/02/2...-motorola-xoom/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"As expected, the upgrade will be free to everyone and will be available approximately<strong> 90 days</strong> after launch, so we&rsquo;re looking at May before this thing will be cooking up those 4G speeds. &nbsp;And as we were told by Motorola at CES, you will have to send in your device and will be without it for<strong> 6 days</strong> while they upgrade the hardware and software."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1298746542.usr309.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>This is different and would be very annoying if you didn't realize it at the time of purchase I think.&nbsp; The Motorola Xoom will need to be sent away for a week to receive the 4G LTE upgrade.&nbsp; At least it will not cost you any shipping fees but it's still an inconvenience and possibly a big one.&nbsp; You can get <a href="http://www.verizonwireless.com/Xoom4GLTEUpgrade" target="_blank">details about the upgrade process here</a>.</p><p>I think the Xoom seems like an excellent tablet.&nbsp; You do need to wonder if they released it a little early.&nbsp; This is the third significant feature I'm aware of that will not be enabled if you buy it now.&nbsp; Those features are Flash (though I think this is due to Adobe more than Motorola), the MicroSDHC (or will it be XC?) card slot, and 4G LTE.&nbsp; Do you think Motorola should have waited to release the Xoom?&nbsp; What are your thoughts on the ship to upgrade process?&nbsp; If you have a Xoom are you happy with it?</p>
