The Motorola Xoom was the first “real” Android tablet. ile the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 beat it to market, the Xoom ran Android Honeycomb was optimized for a larger form factor. There were plenty of issues with the Xoom Honeycomb, but it served its purpose to show what Android was like on a larger device. The E variant, on the other h, was a complete mess. This device cost a whopping $800, which was $200 more than the -Fi only Xoom. For that added money you got no E—just the promise of a future upgrade.
There was no E hardware in the Xoom, which was very new for Verizon at the time. Instead, buyers were told they’d be able to upgrade their device to support E in the coming weeks. That ended up stretching into months. Update didn’t become available until seven months after the device launched. You had to factory reset your tablet send it away for Verizon to install the E modem, which took about a week. As you can imagine, sales of the E Xoom were pretty bad. Don’t promise what you can’t deliver.
