Breaking: Motorola XOOM Update Rolling Out Tonight, Prepares Device for Adobe Flash 10.2 (Updated)

This just went out through the official Motorola Twitter account a few minutes ago.  Flash 10.2 is about to be on the way.  This first Motorola XOOM update will prepare your device for Flash.

Below are the details of the update…  

Update:  The Motorola Support  forums offered this bit of info.  Rooted and unlocked devices might need to SBF back to stock tonight…

We are happy to announce that an over-the-air update to the Motorola XOOM software will start rolling out in phases tonight to all Motroola XOOM owners on the Verizon Wireless network.

You can receive the update over a 3G or a WiFi connection. If you are not connected via WiFi or 3G, or your Motorola XOOM is off when the notification arrives, you will see the notification when you next connect to a wireless network.

If you have unlocked/rooted your Motorola XOOM, you must restore it to the standard software load and relock your device to receive the notification. Owners who have unlocked/rooted can find more information here in the Motorola Xoom unlock / non-standard area of Motorola Owners’ Forums.

More information on the contents of the update can be found here.

Update 2:  The MotoDev team is putting together the tools and instructions for you to be able to re-lock your device. They are hoping to have them up today and we’ll post them as soon as they are live.  In the mean time, be sure to register over there.

Update 3:  We’ve posted XOOM re-locking instructions.

Update 4:  There is a strong possibility that you won’t have to unroot or re-lock your device to receive this update.  We’re digging for further confirmation.

Developing…

    Great post. I am going to take a moment to consider over this content.

    So does anybody know what version this will bring your Xoom up to?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=603285212 Bill Morrow

    that was all directed at sesawyer3127…the guy who thinks that coming into a Droid forum looking to pick a fight with a bunch of Droid geeks sounds like a good idea.

    lol.

    No, I don’t think you understood their point. You came into a Droid forum, for no other reason than to bash the product. They deal with criticism outside of the forum every day, in every way, (at least I do). The point of this forum is not to criticize the product but to discuss, enhance and find new and interesting things about those products.

    You talk about “this ‘update’ is a shame’, it won’t give you flash …”, you also mention how with “xoom they lost”, you don’t really make any sense to be honest. There are a couple of reasons. The ipad after more than a year still does not have flash support. True, Adobe caved on this whole wallaby crap and conversion to html5, I’ll be interested to see how awful that works btw, but you claim that the Xoom lost because of that? Really? Or the fact that at least the Xoom is planned to give 4g access to this, when even the second generation of the iPad cannot? Really? Or what about the awful cameras that the second generation iPad FINALLY received, when even the first one didn’t have it? Oh let’s not forget that in order to use an iPad, even the second generation you have to connect it to a computer loaded with iTunes, (the correct version no less), and then get it working. Even for system updates you must do that.

    I’m sorry, but Apple lost with the iPad…not Google or Motorola with the Xoom. The Xoom is a product that by definition is at least equal to the iPad 2 at release, if not superior, (camera’s). When the flash support and 4g connection are released the Xoom will leap ahead. Along with all other Honeycomb tablets coming up.

    Get your facts straight.

    When was this supposed to happen? Mine is still sitting at original firmware.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZDM4D5YWV7G43GEPT6KGIWK5ZY william OSullivan

    How about the “roll out” the wireless Xoom. Motorola is foolish and is going to lose customers to Apple today as they released their wireless tablet. The Xoom is better, but greed is overtaking this company.

  • Obvious Sarcasm

    Isn’t it great that people who “say” they own multiple ANDROID devices and they know about what ANDROID is about, still call it a DROID device? Gotta love posers. ;-]

    And, this news is awesome. Can’t wait to see if this works without having to re-lock and wipe my data.
    I bought the XOOM at launch and have virtually replaced my laptop.

    • Dshudson

      I too purchased the XOOM at release, but to say you replaced your laptop only tells me you only surf the web, watch movies and play games..

    The tools that Motorola posted on MOTODEV are now in the Xoom Developer section on XDA.

      THANK YOU!!

    • Dshudson

      clearly they are curious about the products because i can tell you with complete honestly i have not went to any isite or iforum whatsoever.. I could care less what they are up too.. ianything is for people who cant think.. Thats why they give their products to children, because they couldn’t grasp the concept of technology where you have to use your brain to use it.

        Ok it didn’t brick – but I needed a hard reset. Don’t know what that was all about but it was heart stopping.

    Very nice of Motorola to talk about rooting/unlocking your device. Hopefully this is the start of an acknowledgment that i can do whatever i like to my device after laying down several bills to acquire it.

  • droid fan

    Xoom rocks now, and will rock even more. This is sweet. (And is cheaper than an equivantly. Equip I pad.. oh wait, there is no such thing.

  • Joe

    So for those of us who rooted, are we seriously going to have to wipe our devices and lose all data just to get this update? I mean very few of us actually changed their boot.img, and its not like we’ve loaded a custom ROM or something. There’s no way we should have to wipe our devices back to stock/locked condition.

    • Anonymous

      Haven’t done it yet, but I’m guessing that re-locking will wipe your device just like unlocking did.

      Let’s hold out for a bit though, I have a feeling this update will work just fine without having to re-lock.

      • Joe

        Yup, agreed, I’ll wait til this update hits the airwaves before I move on anything. I can’t imagine that this wouldn’t work with the rootboot.img, since that should basically have all the components of the stock boot.img except for the root rights, correct?

    • Anonymous

      Doesn’t doing a OTA update format the device anyway? Every time I updated my eris when i did have it it wiped the phone clean. So all the saved game files, music, and moves will be gone anyway… right?

  • Mmmboba

    won’t relocking and unlocking again wipe all the data? =(

  • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

    Updates are saweeeet

  • Sesawyer3127

    Hmmmm guess all you who unlocked and rooted will have to reverse it to get this LOL. Still no word on the SD card thats insane. Any bets on how long it will be before flash actually works? Everyone who is a Android tard that bought the xoom blindly thinking Moto will take care of you are funny! The marketing teams at moto love you for sure and your blind loyalty!

    Motorola is trembling cos of the competitor launching sales tomorrow, so they have to divert some little attention. They are dead in my book. They never updated the fucin milestone! So no trust on this company anymore.

  • http://AndroidTaskForce.com Chris Gustafson

    Awesome!

  • Cyklonic

    Hmm.. Point is? iPad 2 will kill any sales the XOOM was hoping to get. Motorola and Verizon priced it out of existence.
    I think they should be focusing elsewhere. Pity on those who bought the thing already.

      That’s the price you pay to be an early adopter.

    • HoneycombFTW

      iDiots like you just don’t get it. . . there’s a very very large population of people that
      1. will never buy anything made by Apple
      2. prefer not to be milked by a company putting out gimped hardware
      3. want a device that can live without a PC and iTunes
      4. want a device with a capable OS
      now. . . STFU! and piss off!

      • Sesawyer3127

        But instead all of these “idiots” will buy a product that was rushed into production and sales with crucial aspects not working on a company with a past track record of screwing over their customers and who is seeminly doing it again, LOL you CAN NOT be serious??????

        • Fholstein

          Exactamundo! Us “idiots” refuse to the buy it out of principle. Instead we have to put up with the morons who need to have something that is overpriced and out of the boundaries that the droid community stands for. Just keeps the greedy corporations going.
          No need to flame Apple here, there are none who come here. We are just “poor” Droid’rs.

          • Sesawyer3127

            You know what I think me and a lot of people would have respect for, is for Moto to come out and say “your damn right, we sold this “xoom” with it being unfinished, and we did it to beat the Ipad2, whats your point? LOL atleast that has balls and answers so many questions. Dont just hide behind, “we dont know when the rest of our product will will work, but we’ll get back to you. Thats so lame and i guess atypical for Moto. Really shocks me that so many blindly follow it and thank them for getting back with something, even thuogh it is crap?

        • JT

          Um….you just said earlier that you bought a XOOM!!!??? So….are you seriously knocking yourself?? And how long have you been off your medication?

          • Sesawyer3127

            LOL, yes and owning the device gives me way more credibility to make calls on its functionality then not having, do you agree? I also have an Ipad, and Iphone too and get on them for crappy service as well. What i dont do is blindly follow along with a fortune 500 company when they tell me that they have NO idea when a product of theirs will work as advertised. I must be “off my medication” I guess my logic is skewed LOL

          • JT

            Sure. Saying that they own it might give somebody credibility to knock it ( like, “I own an iphone4 and it’s crap compared to my droid” — see how that works?). But it’s your other statements that take away your credibility. “Lol” I understand dog-piling, I just think you should limit yourself to using the “Like” button rather than typing until you’re back on the meds….cool?

          • Sesawyer3127

            While i “get back on my meds” I thought about your comments and really see no where how my comments are not credible, just not liked by the masses of droid follows that are even more blind when it comes to apple products. Dont you see that you hatred of Apple and how you display it makes you just as bad as what you condemning me of? LOL. But I guess thats the medication talking LOL.

          • JT

            Buddy…you are all over the place. You need a break. Get some sleep.

      • Anonymous

        I think cyklonic gets it really well.

        And you too. You just need to mix both points of view and recognize, although the ipad2 is lower in specs (and crappy cameras as per reviews) is a true competitor to the xoom.

        I’m an Android fan but I just hate how moto handles what is supposed to be open source.

        I’m 1.
        I’m 2 and applies to apple and moto.
        I’m 3, and again applies to both. Moto xhit ships with, errr, Windows drivers!
        I’m 4, and granted to Google! (not moto)

        • Anonymous

          I think by #3 he means there are ways to get everything on to your xoom with out the need of those stupid ass wmp11 drivers. The usb port has the ability to host a usb flash drive now thanks to XDA. And when the SD card slot comes alive that will be one more way to unhook from the pc and mac.

    • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

      Stop complaining because your poor I’m sick of people complaining because they can’t afford the device OK we get it move on don’t need to post here if you don’t got of kk

      • Cyklonic

        Tsk tsk. Guess you missed the whole point.
        Easily afford it, and I am a droid user since the beginning. Point was Motorola will move many droid tablet hopefuls to iPad.
        @Brian, there are many who are poor and less fortunate than you. Be nice.

    I think that’s just so nice how they’re treating unlockers and rooters. If they keep this attitude up with the bionic, then I’m definitely getting it.

      likewise!

      rooting and tinkering with themes and basic “roms” and such are fine – overclocking and customer kernals i dont mind sacrificing.

      Agreed. I rarely switch kernels anymore and if someone told me i was stuck at 1 GHz forever I wouldn’t be that upset, its just the OG’s 550 stock wasn’t enough juice for the melon

      Nice to see a positive comment on the XOOM and Motorola. Too many clowns ranting about it who have absolutely no clue.

      • Sesawyer3127

        And your blind loyalty to a company that refuses to let their customers know what is going on with an 800 investment is almost funny. This “update” is a shame, it wont give you flash and my bet is it will still be a long time before that works. Of course we ALLLL want the daylight savings time update LOL. You all say such crappy things about Iphone, but really how bad is that company. Sure it is proprietary, but they must be doing something right, they revolutionized the phone industry. I have a clue, and have had many Andriod devices as well as Apple and with the xoom they lost, sorry I want my money back and if you all can’t take honest critisim about any android device then it is sad

          There’s a difference between honest criticism and whining because this update won’t turn your tablet into a jet pack.

          PS I like the iphone.

          • Sesawyer3127

            what does this update do now? Besides prepare for flash, and make sure daylight savings time will work better? No I am afraid that this is Moto’s fault for putting out something no where near ready for release and expecting, even laughing at all those who bought it thinking they would get back to in a timley manner with updates LOL. I am sorry SD card,,, um i think is more crucial then day light savings time LOL Just me.

          • Andrew Hewitt

            Okay, then get an iPad if you want flash or an SD card.

          • Sesawyer3127

            I have flash on my Iphone 4 and Ipad right now so that logic will never work. Google it, it already works on those devices, and I can live with 32 and 64gb of memory for now LOL really thats all you have!

          • Andrew Hewitt

            Okay great, you like the ipad and I like widgets. Why are you on this site if you’re just here to complain? Some of us actually enjoy our purchase.

          • Sesawyer3127

            Sorry if you see it as just criticism, do you not think that any customer on any site has the right to voice concerns that seems to get lost in the translation? A lot here will do it to Apple? But I guess since this is a Droid site and the fact that I own three droids, the galaxy tab, and the xoom doesn’t qualify me to say anything right? I love droids and the openness with which they allow, but what I cant stand is a company that rushes a product to sale and then back peddles on the very foundation on time frames of when they will update various aspects that they should have before selling??? It amazes me in our society how we will defend the companies that abuse our trust in the name of an operating system??? Again I love the droid community but like most Apple fanboys the blind faith amazes me.

          • DerekR

            You are right, the XOOM was rushed. I mean, every time I hold it the bars seem to fade away. Good thing I went with that Apple product…

          • Sesawyer3127

            WOW, now that was funny, LOL no i mean really it was considering that Apple went public and admitted fault with that and even gave free holders to customers for it. What has Moto done to make up for the droves of “um I dont know when that will work” comments? Say what you want regardless of who is responsible for an unfinished product whether it is Apple or Moto, saying you have no idea when your product will work as advertised is a shame.

          • DerekR

            Seriously? The iPhone4 sells for $600 off contract and could have no reception depending on hand size if you held the phone in a regular fashion. You are saying that giving people a free case makes this situation better then the XOOM not having a few features but basically completely functional otherwise? Especially when all the hardware is in place it’s simply a software problem.

          • Sesawyer3127

            No I am saying that either company is wrong for selling a product that was not ready to be released. I am saying that both companies should have waited to release their products that had innate known deficiencies. I am also saying that I have had both the Iphone 4 on AT&T and now Verizons and never had a drop call or noticed the signal loss like so many people have said? But maybe thats just me?

            And really,,, not having a few features, LOL by that you mean the SD card LOL thats a pretty important feature for a supposed unlockable device. Yes, they did say that it would not work, but it has been what two weeks since it was released and really no idea when it will work? Give me something, even if it is a month, year, something! Like i said to the other gentleman I hope your faith in Moto is not misplaced and you wont be like one of the many thousands that lost faith in moto after the Droid X debacle, good luck!

            That was a waste of bandwidth. You should focus that energy on the homeless and hungry.

          • Sesawyer3127

            LOL with comments like that and I am the troll LOL Your right the flash we have on the xoom right now is so much better, oh thats right even after this update it still wont work. Watch and mark my words most of you will despise Moto and curse their name like many did for the droid X debacle, give it time they WILL let you down. With the many “i dont know when that will work” answers on their forum website it is a wonder why so many droid fanboys believe them LOL really stop and think I know its hard for some of you LOL

          • angermeans

            I have watched your moronic and closed minded comments for a couple days now and this is the first I decepided to comment on. First of all why do you go to a dedicated android blog and talk trash and then ask why people can’t take critisism? What you are saying is just your opinion and nothing more and its not even a valid one as i am sure you have never picked up a Xoom at all. Second, I see you constantly bringing up the promised updated for the Xoom when we all know that the ipad2 won’t be getting 4G, doesn’t have expandable memory, and will never have flash support. That’s like paddling up to a speedboat in a canoe and yelling how lame’the speed boat is because its engine is a 4 cylinder and won’t be getting the six cylinder until later in the year (for free). You make yourself look sorry. Third ill say it again for all ou

          • Sesawyer3127

            i will not stoop to the levels that you have, I am not here to condemn anyone who loves droid, just the company that abuses our trust and the willingness to let that go. Obviously you can not read because I have owned all manner of droid devices to include the xoom, read a few posts ago LOL. Also I have flash on both my Apple devices, read again a few posts ago LOL. As well read a few more post before that and see that I can live with 32 and 64 gb’s of on board memory LOL. Funny how I do not feel “sorry”.

          • angermeans

            You didn’t defend your posts at all. How is it motorola’s fault like you claim? What company abusus our trust? Everyone knows that the Xoom is lacking these features. Motorola could have just not offered them like apple. You make absolutely no sense and try to play the nice guy trying to warn people when all you are doing is trolling every post talking shit you know nothing about. What level did I stoop too? That’s right I didn’t. There is a reason that you get called out because you know nothing about what your talking about. I think that apple has great products and i will’never own a different laptop’made by a different company but I also know that apples yearly updates are a joke and you and every other apple fan needs to stop eating up what steve jobs’force feeds you. You want talk about trust? Motorola and their partners have been on the up and up and i am positie everyone that purchased a Xoom did so knowing they would get these updates and i am sure most see the Xoom as a great product without them. Back to the misuse of trust. Go watch the ipad2 announcement. They sit there talking of how great their dual core pocessor is and front and rear cameras. They even talk about the covers and fill the rest of the hour talking trash (much like you) anout other os companies. But what did they leave out? What about the ram, what about the cameras and how poor they have been rated. They have underclocked most of their processors but we as consumers only find this out once someone tears it apart. What about the iphone 4 and how it would lose service when held a certain way? Don’t recall them just offer a case and tell consumers they are holding it wrong. What about apple making deals with att stating that the womt upgrade their android offerings or they will’lose their exclusivity. These are misuse of trust so please stop trolling and talking of products you know nothing about on a website that we all lobe to read.

          • Sesawyer3127

            You have proven my point, Apple has released products just as Moto that was not ready for sale? I am amazed at how you do not think that releasing a product on the hopes and dreams that it will work someday and then further making the situation bad by saying they have NO idea when it will work is not crazy?

            Um i dont know maybe dont release it until the SD card works,,,why was it such a need to get it out before that working? Why not wait for that and the 4g hardware update THEN sell it as a whole product? Why would a company release something like this and then have the nerve to say they have no idea when it will work fully as advertised LOL. It makes no sense, I have the xoom and one day it will be a great product, but for now it is one step above the galaxy tab!

            As well Apple did release a “fix” for the signal reception in the form of an update and a cover, what are you getting from Moto, oh thats right “um we dont know when that will work” LOL I really hope that you enjoy the xoom and your faith is not misplaced like the thousands literally of Droid X owners who lost faith due to that debacle LOL. Good luck to you!.

          • angermeans

            I see to a point what you are saying and i agree google, motorola, and verizon could be a little more transparent about when they plan to release these promised features as we paid 800 with these features in mind. However, like I stated before it doesn’t fully fall on motorola as they have provided the equipment and was ready to release the Xoom. They had to release it soon as all companies right now are struggling to get something competitive to market to compete with the ipad. Apple is dominsting in this space. Why should motorola wait and delay their finished product because their partners have yet to finish their obligations? Even without these features the Xoom does a great job in competing with the I pad and that was all motorola, verizon, and google needed to do. An product that is waiting for updates is better than a delayed product because it is on the shelves. They have to get something out as i believe there is a huge market of people that don’t care for the ipad and apple products, but if they don’t have an option they will get an ipad. They faced an uphill battle and needed to gte a product out and fast. I am very happy with my purchase of the Xoom. I feel that the 799 price tag was fair. For what you get I was more than happy to pay. The wifi only will be in the market soon and that will offer another option to compete. I get so sick of seeing the comments complaining that the Xoom is too expensive and will fail cause they didn’t hit the 599 mark. The differences between the 16 gb wifi only I pad and the 32 gb 3G/4G Xoom are huge. If people don’t want thisversion then wait for wifi. Me I have been waiting for this tablet and i wanted a 3G/4G tablet as i need it on the go. I finally see the need for a product in between a smartphone and laptop. You can’t totally say the Xoom is horrible just because features are missing that other companies are responisble for. If you want to blame someone for missing features then blame, adobe, google, and verizon as they are the reason for these updates, but no one can argue that once released they will’have a huge leg up on the ipad and that is good for us consumers as all competition is. Don’t discount the Xoom just yet as it will continue to be the best (at least from the tablets annoumced) for a few more months and being a google experience device we will see some awesome things come out of both 3rd party development and also from xda. Having an unlockable bootloader was probably the main reason that made me want this tablet and to be honest I haven’t put it down since launch.

            Sorry if I was out of line ans I didnt want to come across as attacking you I just didn’t see your point nd you are entitled to your opinion but you are coming across as an ignorant apple fanboy and most of your posts are nothing more than meaningless rants flaming posts that we look forward to read. Just tone it down a little. I love forums and all cause you see different points of view and everyone is entitled to their opinion, but flaming gets us no where. Sorry if I my posts come off as if i am attackimg you I frankly was tired of seeing your posts that started nothing but arguments. Good luck my friend.

            i will not stoop to the levels that you have, I am not here to condemn anyone who loves droid, just the company that abuses our trust and the willingness to let that go. Obviously you can not read because I have owned all manner of droid devices to include the xoom, read a few posts ago LOL. Also I have flash on both my Apple devices, read again a few posts ago LOL. As well read a few more post before that and see that I can live with 32 and 64 gb’s of on board memory LOL. Funny how I do not feel “sorry”.

            I have watched your moronic and closed minded comments for a couple days now and this is the first I decepided to comment on. First of all why do you go to a dedicated android blog and talk trash and then ask why people can’t take critisism? What you are saying is just your opinion and nothing more and its not even a valid one as i am sure you have never picked up a Xoom at all. Second, I see you constantly bringing up the promised updated for the Xoom when we all know that the ipad2 won’t be getting 4G, doesn’t have expandable memory, and will never have flash support. That’s like paddling up to a speedboat in a canoe and yelling how lame’the speed boat is because its engine is a 4 cylinder and won’t be getting the six cylinder until later in the year (for free). You make yourself look sorry. Third ill say it again for all ou

        • JT

          You forgot to write “Muah ha ha ha ha!!! (Laughing Maniacally)!!” And did you seriously pay for a Xoom knowing you hated it? That wasn’t very bright, now was it?

          • Sesawyer3127

            No I bought it with the hopes that I would get a better answer then “gee i have no idea when our product will function as advertised” LOL I mean really tell me “it will be a month, a year”, something more then i dont know. WHAT!!!! this is your product, not mine, heck I could have gave that answer LOL

          I don’t think anyone really gives a $hit about the update, they are just more happy about Moto’s stance towards rooting/unlocking. I know for myself as happy with my DX I am unlikely to get a Bionic if they don’t maintain this attitude for that device as well.
          As for the blind Android enthusiasm, well, check the url up top, not expecting to see that shows not much thinking on your part. I know you say you owned it all but that doesn’t mean we believe you as I’m sure many people looking to start a comment war (anything more lame?) will declare they have one and it sucks when they don’t, just saying.

      • angermeans

        That’s exactly how I feel and i am willing to bet most have never even used the Xoom. Mine has gone everywhere with ever since getting it on launch.

  • Raptor007

    Sounds good Moto, any word on the microSD card support as well, it was supposed to be around this time. I am waiting for the Wi-Fi version to come out which hopefully will have these patches already done.

    HELL YEAH!

    ….oh wait, I don’t even own an XOOM yet. Great.

      And please don’t ever do it. I’m sure there will be much better android tablets that will be better than the xoom without the ridiculous price and without the motorola nonexistent support.

      • Anonymous

        Moto’s nonexistent support? Did you read the post above? I’m usually the first to complain about Moto, but this story warrants kudos, not complaints.

        • Anonymous

          With all the respect, did you ever went and surf through the “support” forum? You will be thrilled on how many threads are marked as “Not answered”. I my self started at least 5 threads and none if them were answered by a motoxprt correctly. I had to find my self the answer and finally put my hands on a broken device. I used the best and most nice wording and I’ve got only clues from forum members, thank god. Ironically, those same members were having similar issues, and I’ve found my self that this is a recurrent issue due to bad motorola engineering! (digitizer quit working out of nothing)

          • Sesawyer3127

            Amen brother! I have asked so many questions and refuse to give up and let moto win. I paid over 800 for a device that was not ready for prime time. Yes I knew the SD card would need a software update, as well flash too but NEVER dreamed I would get a “um i dont know” answer on when they might work. This update WILL NOT get flash working it is just one step in the process to get it working, so dont hold your breath! There are devs that got flash working in the ihpone 4 so the idea that eventually it wont work on the Ipad 2 is crap. The IOS4.3 is already jailbroken, give it time LOL

            And kellex called us clowns… oh thanks, yes, I assume I’m ranting. I am fucin disgusted with moto cos they just laugh of them customers! Sorry, but apple is also a big no no in my book.

          • Sesawyer3127

            Well I dont think I am a “clown” LOL I have had three Android devices most HTC and never had a problem. One would think with all the crap that moto took with the Droid X that they would have learned? I am not a big Apple fan either but you cant deny they dont sell devices with crucial aspects not working. If they dont sell it like that they dont, simple??? Calling people clowns because of a difference of opinion is a lack of coming up with a conclusive argument, and name calling is childish!

            I read through the forums until I found Droid Life. All the Moto support I’ve needed since, I’ve found here. Moto’s forum manager should change his name to doormatt. :-)

            However, this story deserves an “attaboy” for Moto.

          • Anonymous

            I sincerely hope this for good, not for moto but for the customers, average Joe wants what he paid for. This is just what they are supposed to offer, good support, updates, reliable device, so it just not surprises me. They can hire many good devs out there in the wild and had the thing fixed from day one!

        Naw…I’ll be buying an XOOM this Summer…which by then, the price will hopefully be decreased by a few hundred bucks. But besides that, I’ve had my eye set on the XOOM since before last year, so I’ll definitely be getting one.

        That’s the way with all new technology. You buy something, and that something will be eventually replaced by something better. It’ll happen with the XOOM and it’ll happen with the XOOM-2. But why wait? If that’s the case, then I’ll be waiting forever to buy a tablet, so might as well settle on something that I will enjoy over the next two years, then I’ll get something better.

        And not sure what you mean by nonexistent support. I’m sure if you call or e-mail Motorola, someone will be there to answer/help.
