When the Motorola XOOM was unveiled at the beginning of this year at CES the reigns weren’t quite ready to come off and hands-on time was limited, but now as the first Honeycomb tablet nears launch the story is a bit different. Motorola is busy shipping off their baby to some high-profile people, and of course one would be the social media savvy Chad Ochocinco of the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals.

Ochocinco is already busy tweeting about his new acquisition, calling the tablet “pretty awesome” and insisting he has no plans to return it to Motorola. No matter what, functional units already going out to drum up some buzz is a good indicator that this tablet is just days away from getting its official launch announcement all squared away.
