New Motorola XOOM LTE Nears Launch, Receives MAP Along with DROID3

It looks like the Motorola XOOM with 4G LTE (aka the Motorola XOOM LTE)  is about ready to launch, along with the DROID3.  Both devices have been added to Verizon’s MAP (minimum advertised price) list, which is one of the better indicators that a device is about to be released.  There is no telling if this is the mystery device that we first spotted from a VZW tablet commercial last week or just the same ol’ XOOM with an LTE radio in it.  We’re going with the latter.  Oh, and this is a pretty good sign that we should be hearing from Motorola about sending in our current non-4G XOOMs for upgrades.  (/Fingers crossed.)

The DROID3 on the other hand is still headed for July 7 until we hear otherwise.  It was just announced as the Milestone3 in China, so you’ve got to figure that Big Red and Moto are just looking for the perfect spot to make it official here in the U.S.

What do you guys think?  Finally ready for 4G in a XOOM?  Is this a newer version of the XOOM or just the current version with a 4G radio in it?

Cheers ___ and  ___!

    The GSII and the D3 will be capable of running Ice Cream Sandwich. The Nexus will get it first, but the other top notch phones of today will get it as well. Google isn’t going to leave the Nexus S completely behind, so considering that it’s specs are below the specs of the GSII and the D3, they’ll be more than capable.

    I will be extremely disappointed if they start selling Xoom LTE’s before offering those of us that were early adapters the upgrade.  It means that it is worked out and they are producing new ones so they should have already started the upgrade!  And dammit where is the SD slot activation???

  • Anonymous

    If Moto has any sense what-so-ever they should contact non-4G Xoom owners where they will be able to send off their Xoom and have it back BEFORE the 4G Xoom is released.

    If not (I know it won’t happen, but) I would expect them to allow non-4G Xoom owners to trade in the non-4G for a 4G Xoom free of charge.

  • My wife and i got very joyful when Peter managed to finish off his analysis with the ideas he received through the site. It is now and again perplexing to simply find yourself offering tips and hints which usually some other people may have been selling. So we recognize we have got the blog owner to thank for that. Most of the illustrations you’ve made, the easy website navigation, the relationships you can make it easier to instill – it’s got mostly terrific, and it’s really assisting our son and the family do think this article is enjoyable, which is truly pressing. Thank you for all the pieces!

    • James_Ever

      Same here. Hopefully they’ll do a pre-release this week for it. They’ve done this the most with Motorola devices this past year EX, DX2; Droid2, DDroid2global. I just want the full specs and if the qwerty keyboard will have those blue accents like the Milestone3.

  • they said when the xoom gets 4g then the bionic will come out and 4g for the xoom is suppose to be happening middle of July

  • J Maynard Jm

    So once they start selling 4G XOOMS will the price be higher than what the 3G was?

    • James_Ever

      More than likely, at least a 150 bucks if not more.

  • Anonymous

    after falling for the hype and buying the overweight, dim screen, always crashing Xoom which STILL hasnt been upgraded to 4g or functioning SD slot, why the hell would I ever consider another Motorola device? No, I was one of the fortunate ones who sold the Xoom while it still held some value.
    Motorola has absolutely no credibility and there is nothing they could do to get my money again.

    • you have no credibility…just coming in here and bad mouthing a company without specific details is trollish

      note- I am not saying you are a troll but if you give better productive details it will help your case

      • Anonymous

        Wow, what part of dim screen, overweight, crash too often, no functioning sd slot, no upgrade to 4g did you consider lacking in detail? Motorola failed completely with the Xoom by failing to live up to it’s promises. Now if you want to blindly believe in Motorola, do it. I’m just saying, they got my money once, but never again.

    I just have to say this. The D1 is a beast. How many people here have a D1 and are waiting for a device that can live up to the D1? Usually its the other way around. You can’t wait for your upgrade date so you can get rid of your old junky phone. The D1 is def. the first phone I have had that I have an upgrade and am just waiting for something so much beastier than the D1 to upgrade to. 

    • Well, my D1 these days spends more time frozen or with a blanked out screen when I try and send a text message… at this point anything is looking like a better option…

    Yeah, my OG Droid contract is up early July. Now, i want to get a Galaxy S2, but who knows how Sammy is gonna keep up with their updates. But i also wanna wait for the new Nexus…but that probably won’t come on contract, and if it does, it wont be on Verizon. (all other service providers suck where I live, right outside of Albany, ny…except for Sprint..blah)

    I just don’t know if i could wait until thanksgiving for a new phone, you know? The Bionic might be too big (4.5 inches isn’t really a deal breaker, but Moto isn’t known for making thin phones. And thinness could make up for the supidly large size. What to do?

  • Rob Meyer

    If you know (vzw) you are 100% sure that the D3 has a release date of July 7th, why wouldnt you be advertising the hell out of it? At least getting a buzz around the internet without having to drop some duckets on early commercials… Internet advertising is free for the most part through various tech sites… and from there word of mouth begins to spread further.

    • Because it only takes about a week of buzz these days. The industry moves too fast. Apple barely gives more warning than that nowadays.

      • James_Ever

        Very true and that’s not including the pre-release date as they do for most devices, which should be any day now…
