There are two updates Motorola promised when launching the XOOM tablet in February. First, the microSD card slot would eventually work. Second, the company would offer a free upgrade which would allow users to send in their 3G capable tablets to receive a 4G LTE modem.
The first promise is finally starting to come true. Today Motorola started rolling out a software update that, among other things, allows you to actually start using that long-dormant SD card slot on your tablet.
This doesn’t necessarily tell us when Motorola will start offering the upgrade to people who have purchased XOOM tablets — but at least one regulatory hurdle has been cleared.
