Verizon Motorola Xoom 4G LTE Tablet Finally Arrives; 32GB Version Costs $499.99 with a 2 Year Contract

October 27, 2011, By Leo Xavier

The 4G LTE version of the Motorola Xoom Android tablet is now available on sale from Verizon Wireless. The device is only available in 32GB and it retails for $669.99 without a contract. You can get the device for $499.99 if you sign a 2-year contract.

The specs of the 4G LTE Xoom are the same as that of the current Xoom tablets, with the addition of 4G radios.

That means you will get a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra-2 dual-core processor along with 1GB of RAM, a 10.1 inch display and the Android Honeycomb 3.2 OS.


As you might know, the Motorola Xoom was launched earlier this year with a 3G radio on board. The company promised that the radio will be upgraded to support Verizon’s 4G LTE network. But the upgrading process never happened for a while.

Later on, Motorola and Verizon finally made the upgrade to 4G available. But it required the Xoom owners to submit their tablets and wait for a while to get the device back.

But now, 4G LTE support will be available out of the box. The 4G LTE Xoom will give Verizon’s customers access to much faster upload and download speeds.

The carrier is claiming that its 4G speeds are up to 10 times faster than 3G, with download speeds up to 15 Mbps.

Head here if you are interested in the tablet.

So, are you interested in getting one for yourself? Or do you prefer the carrier’s slimmer Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1? Or are you someone waiting for the rumored Xoom 2? Let us know in the comments box.
