Verizon and Motorola have finally announced that owners of the first ever Android Honeycomb powered tablet, the XOOM, can get their much-awaited 4G LTE upgrade from tomorrow.
When Motorola initially announced XOOM at the beginning of this year, the company promised free 4G LTE update for the tablet within 90 days of its availability. While the update is still free, it’s been more than 5 months (150days) since the XOOM was released to the public.
Motorola promises to ship back the XOOM to its original owner within six days, with 4G LTE modem installed. The company also suggests users to back up the data on their tablet, before shipping it to them.
XOOM owners, who will be among the early upgraders, will get a Standard dock for their tablet for free. However, this offer is valid only till stock last, so XOOM owners better hurry up. XOOM owners will also be able to keep their current existing data plan, post the upgrade.
For users who still have not subscribed to a data plan, they will three options 30$ for 2GB free monthly data, 50$ for 5GB free data, and a whopping $80 for a paltry 10GB of free monthly data.
