VXOOM 4G Delay Limps Previous Galaxy Tab 10.1 Kick off



When I bought the actual Motorola XOOM a few months back, I partially bought it with the knowledge that 4G could well be on the way. It might get the bothersome hardware upgrade to complete the process, however nevertheless it would come. Here we are numerous months later along with the contending Galaxy Tab ten.one regarding to kick off on Verizon with 4G capability and also approximately zero XOOM entrepreneurs have already been invited to upgrade their hardware.

What gives? Various sites need documented that Sanjay Jha, at a current tech conference, all however put the particular blame on NVIDIA’s Tegra two chipset- a problem we would contest. Talking regarding Motorola’s latest delays, Jha stated “betting every thing in a single place” as well as proposed later on they’ll wish to work with more chipset producers. Naturally the particular Motorola XOOM works Tegra two. Um, yeah, however so does the actual Galaxy Tab ten.1.

We obtained inside touch with our get in touch with on NVIDIA who emphatically dismissed the particular attribution of delay, expounding at a few truly good factors we’ve presently produced:

"Tegra has no compatibility problems using LTE in any respect. The actual Tegra-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab ten.1 4G LTE tablet operates in Verizon’s LTE network and it is a perfect example of Tegra working good w/ 4G LTE. Tegra 2 interfaces using quite a few types of modems via regular interfaces, such as LTE. There exists very little inherently unique regarding LTE so far as Tegra two is involved."

Taking into account the Galaxy Tab can also be operating Tegra 2 - and also operating this brilliantly - I come across this a little bit bit suspicious that NVIDIA would at any time have been blamed. Probably Jha meant Verizon. Or probably - and I believe it is most certainly - it's possible he was clamoring to come up having a few style of PR speak that may attribute the particular blame elsewhere without attributing it to every one particular entity. Seems regarding ideal.

I assume there are tons for irritated XOOM entrepreneurs that have extensive been expecting the actual 4G upgrade. And given the fact that the upgrade procedure is hardware intensive, are any for you nervous how that could go when you are eventually able to acquire the actual one-up to the up coming level? XOOM owners communicate today or forever hold your peace!
