Motorola Xoom Getting 4G/LTE Update Tomorrow

Motorola and Verizon Wireless have announced that the 4G/LTE upgrade for the Motorola Xoom 3g will finally start tomorrow.  The upgrade is free but it requires you to send your Motorola Xoom in, in order to get it.

This send in process has become a point of concern for people who have incorporated the Motorola Xoom into their daily routines, whether they are using it for business or personal use.  Motorola is informing customers that the upgrade should not take longer than 6 business days.

Once the upgrade has been performed customers should expect speeds to the tablet between 5 and 12 mbps downloading and 2 and 5 mbps uploading. Xoom owners will still be able to fall back on Verizon’ s 3G network when the travel outside of the 4G coverage area.

Motorola had thought they would have the first 4G/LTE Android tablet however Samsung beat them to the punch. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with 4G/LTE was released in July on Verizon Wireless.
