In the slowly unraveling drama that is the XOOM 4G LTE upgrade, another chapter has been put in place. Rumor has it that VZW XOOM owners may receive an email today letting them know the the upgrade will happen in September -- but we have no confirmation as of yet.

Update: Here is the email we received confirming that the update should indeed start in September:


The original word on the street was that the upgrade should have happened only three months after launch, a deadline severely missed by Motorola/Verizon. If the September date is correct, the VZW XOOM will have been out for seven months when it finally gets its 4G LTE chip.  To add insult to injury, the 4G LTE equipped Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is set to hit Big Red's shelves on July 28th. Ouch.

    IMHO, they should credit us for the data for those months. Not that they will, but they should.

    Yes Android anything sucks but at least it's open and not behind a Walled Garden, Android Products are Chronically in Beta, half baked and takes a team of online geeks and techno nerds to make the devices functional but at least the prices are great and users are open to download as much porn, oops I mean apps as possible.

    This is some Bull Sh*t. I feel like they screwed the hell out of us, and we're supposed to be okay with this? No...! I don't even want to use my xoom unless I'm in wifi mood. So I leave it home. 4 months passed the original promised date. what's in it for us?
