We reported yesterday that Motorola’s Xoom tablet was coming to Verizon at an entry price of $600 with a 2 year contract. If you’re someone who has been waiting to fork out $600 and be enrolled into a 2-year contract or a one-time $800 to get your hands on a fresh copy of the device, you’ll be glad to know that Verizon has already started accepting orders – both online and at their stores.
For those who want to instantly enjoy lightning speeds on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, I’m afraid you’ll need to endure a bit of inconvenience. Verizon has confirmed that customers will need to ship off their Xooms to Motorola for the 4G LTE upgrade. Customers will be supplied with a protective cover, a box tray and a pre-paid FedEx envelope to ease the process. You may need to wait around a week to get your device back with 4G enabled.
