The Motorola XOOM tablet has been available since February, but the Android tablet still has a non-functional microSD card slot. While we wait for a software update to remedy the situation, Motorola is at least offering a way to move photos from your camera to the tablet.

Droid Life reports that you can now purchase a Motorola XOOM camera Connection Kit from Verizon for $19.99. It’s not yet available from the Verizon web site, but if you call Verizon and ask for part MOTMZ600ADPKIT, you should be able to place an order.

The Camera Connection Kit lets you transfer files from supported cameras using XOOM’s micro-USB port.

Apple offers a similar Camera Connection Kit for the iPad. The difference is that the iPad doesn’t have USB ports or a microSD card slot.

  1. man we need some details on this. can it transfer RAW files from a real DSLR? or video recorded on an HDSLR? these are both pretty important to anybody looking to use the 32 gigs and future extra 32 gigs (uh… hopefully, i guess) as a portable backup.

  2. Umm, wow what a bucket full of fail. When it’s easier to design and get a cable connector to market than it is to get your firmware working something is very wrong.

  3. Finally! Does this verify that the Xoom has official USB OTG “On-The-Go” support now? It’s been the only factor holding me back from a mainstream Android tablet and keeping me interested in the Asus Transformer for my USB fix. Will this cable be compatible with other Honeycomb tablets or is it Motorola specific?
