We’re just one day away from the grand launch of the very first Honeycomb tablet – the Motorola XOOM. Motorola, in conjunction with Verizon, have committed to giving everyone the ability to use their shiny new play-things over big red’s 4G LTE network, but we didn’t know exactly how that was going to go down.

No, you won’t get an entirely new tablet – we figured as much considering no sane business man or woman would want a warehouse full of hardware with outdated technology. Instead, you’ll send your device in to Motorola for them to crack it open and ever-so-gently insert those 4G radios.

Expect a 6-day turn around from the time it gets to their warehouses to the time they ship it back. Everything is absolutely free, including shipping to-and-fro. The upgrades should be ready come May and more information will eventually be available at this URL. [Droid-Life]
