Motorola XOOM Update Still Coming Today? Features List Removed from Verizon Site

Yesterday, Verizon informed us that the Motorola XOOM would be receiving an update starting today, but if you check back to their support site for the device, the new features list has been removed and reverted back to the HRI66 update.  We’re not sure what this means, although we can hope that they took it back to the drawing board and are planning to include SD card support.  OK, that’s definitely not happening, but it would be nice to know what’s going on.

Stay tuned…

Cheers Mr. Alfonso!

    A friend just posted a statement to his blog (link – click here) that I think sums up the issue very well…

    Motorola: When are you going to wake up and see how much damage you are creating for yourselves each and every day that these issues go unresolved. Is this the beginning of another low point in the Motorola saga???

    Last week or so when I dropped in to check out tablets at VZW, when I asked the sales dude about when the Xoom will be coming equipped with 4G and sd, he said that now they won’t be coming equipped and that they’ll all have to be turned back in for the 4G/sd. Has any one else heard of this rumour?

    Interesting thing to note – Adobe just pushed out an update to Flash 10.2, and in the description from the Market it says that the new update includes “Hardware accelerated video presentation (requires Android 3.1)”, and “Enhanced browser integration for Honeycomb tablets (requires Android 3.1)”. Yup, you read that right, Android 3.1. Take it for what its worth, but its looking like the new update for Honeycomb will be 3.1

    I don’t get it: Why is enabling a SD card so taboo?

      It’s not that it is Taboo but rather it was not enabled for technical reasons… meaning the code wasnt ready… Remember that Honeycomb is a totally new version of Android only based upon the old code base. Those who have enabled it on forthcoming Honeycomb tablets are using a hack (their own code) to get around the lack of it in Honeycomb.

    hate to say it… but i’ve definitely become a motorola/ verizon hater. why are they shooting themselves in the foot like this? it’s like they have the best hardware (and aoftware if they stic kwith vanilla android)… but just are falling over themselves to try and hinder the progress. maybe verizon’s the one doing all the hindering, but shame on moto for allowing it.

    not trying to incite a flame war, here. jsut posting my opinion/ fruistration at moto. i had the OG and DX… now i have a tbolt and i am waaay happier.

    moto, LEARN from htc – give people what they want. i feel now like moto is to htc as apple is to google.

      I think most people share your opinion at this point. Verizon and Moto need to — ironically — communicate more when it comes to the release dates of products and software
