Verizon Motorola XOOM owners get their 4G LTE upgrade starting tomorrow

Verizon Motorola XOOM owners get their 4G LTE upgrade starting tomorrow
Being surpassed by the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE, long time Verizon Motorola XOOM owners are finally going to get their fill of 4G LTE speeds as Big Red officially announced that the 4G LTE upgrade for the Honeycomb tablet will be available starting tomorrow, September 29th.

Looking back at it, the notion of the Motorola XOOM getting 4G LTE connectivity undoubtedly attracted consumers to its aura at the beginning, however, the long wait might’ve taken its toll already. Previously, government and business customers started getting the tasty upgrade back in late August – with Verizon employees also getting in not too long after that.

Well, now the doors are open for all, which means that there are going to be a lot of happy people out there very soon. With the process, owners will have to wait approximately six business days in order to get the 4G LTE modem properly installed. Of course, the additional wait might turn some people off, but after taking into consideration the bounties found at the end of the rainbow, it’s not going to be all that bad.

Finally, starting on October 13th, Verizon will start selling the Motorola XOOM with 4G LTE connectivity out of the box through its retail stores and online for $499.99 with a 2-year contract. A long time in the making, XOOM owners are finally getting their much-needed reward.
