New Verizon Xoom ad with mind reader has big error in it!
dave_flagg
Member

the ad talks about all you can do with the xoom and android 3.0? then it goes on about watching movies from the market etc. And mentions 3.0 a couple more times.  but you couldnt do any of that with android 3.0. and it says it is upgradable to LTE. I wonder if we can get a comment from Verizon about when that will be?

Thanks for your post. Out of the box, the XOOM comes with software version 3.0 (Honeycomb) which will allow you to watch movies on the device. Having said that, I apologize as I do not have a date to offer you as to when the phone will become 4G upgradeable. Once the upgrade is available, you'll find all the information about it here on vzw.com. 

 

Thanks again,

I appreciate your taking time to answer but really, 3.0 wasn't able to wacth movies anywhere. Maybe if you used a third party app to reformat the movie but it was pretty unstable and didn't include flash etc so watching a movie we pretty much out of the question. And the movies didn't show up in the market until 3.1 was released. I didn't really expect an answer about LTE after the announcement yesterday but had to ask that out of frustration. I really like my xoom but not the lack of communictaion of real info from Moto or VZW. Thanks.

bigdave240, 

I understand you not being happy about receiving info on updates about the Xoom. At this time we don't have any dates or further info. When we do get information on the update, we will communicate that to all of our customers.
