Quite a few of you guys have sent your 3G Motorola Xoom's off to get the LTE upgrade, and we're hearing good things all around. If you've sent yours off, expect to receive a small OTA update to HLK75D when it returns (packed full of performance-related improvements per the notification, just like the Wifi models) if you haven't already received it, and of course expect some fast-as-heck data speeds. Turn around time seems to be good -- we're hearing it averages about a week -- and so far (knock on wood) we haven't heard a single horror story or tale of misfortune.
Motorola and Verizon may have taken longer than anyone would have liked -- and we are hearing the occasional story about delays for the retrofit -- but it looks like they are making good on their promises. Hit the break for two more pictures that are sure to make any Xoom owner smile.
