Motorola has announced that they will stop the upgrade for their Motorola Xoom tablets to 4G LTE capability by the end of March. This is the final call for all those people who by any chance have not yet done the upgrade.
Motorola launched their Xoom tablet back in 2011 and at the launch time the tablet did not have 4G capabilities. But in order to increase the sales figures and overcome this small disadvantage Motorola has promised its users that a 4G update will be coming to the Xoom tablets very soon. The company kept their word and an upgrade to the Xoom software was made available.
The users could send their Xoom tablets to the service centre and get the recommended update. Thus many users were able to enjoy the benefits of high data rates and 4G LTE capabilities. The later Xoom devices came with pre installed 4G LTE capabilities. Almost a year has passed since Motorola started their device update and finally they have decided to wrap it up. So people who haven’t still made this update and want to move on to the 4G LTE capability will have to do it before the end of this month.
Motorola Xoom tablet features a 10.1 inch screen that has a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. The screen is of TFT capacitive touch screen type and supports multi touch commands. The tablet has dual cameras and the main camera has a resolution of 5 mega pixels. The secondary camera meant for video calling is of 2 mega pixels. The tablet works using Nvidia Tegra 2 T20 chipset and has a dual core Cortex-A9 processor that has a clock speed of 1 GHz. The device comes in 16GB, 32 GB and 64 GB internal memory capacities with 1 GB RAM. There is an external memory card slot too.
The whole process of sending the device, getting the update and returning it back to the user is estimated by the Motorola officials to take a period of about two weeks. But there are some users who got their devices back just after 3 days. This is because now the initial rush is over and almost all the devices have been updated. And this reduced load of incoming devices allows the Motorola support team to work efficiently and quickly on them and return it back to the users. To do the update just visit Verizon’s official site.
