The Xoom Android Tablet is  a Google Experience device that doesn’t get a whole lot of respect. These types of gadgets are supposed to be upgraded quickly and run pure stock Android Goodness.  The big selling point of them is their immediate upgrades keep you from needing to hack the kernel and mod your own OS (Not that there is anything wrong with this!).  Personally I knew I was overpaying for this device on the first day  of its release but was ready to have these updates arrive on my Android table the day they are released.

This news has been posted in a few other places already.  This is however exciting news because this Google Experience Tablet has been running without an SDCard slot that is active and without the 4G it was supposed to have at purchase.  Forcing customers to wait much longer could have been class action lawsuit material.  Let us hope that Motorola and Google get these modules into these tablets in short order and that the LTE Xoom owning public doesn’t have to wait for their 3.2 Android updates until the modules are installed.
