Xooming into the future

… by which I mean that if you buy a Xoom and want all its whiz-bang features, you’ll have to wait a while until the future catches up.

The Xoom has an impressive list of features that will only come to work by way of future upgrades.

  1. 4G LTE support, which will require you to ship the tablet back to Motorola for over a week.
  2. The microSD slot is not functional (they blame this one on Google).
  3. Adobe Flash isn’t there. Wasn’t that the “big thing” that made this better than an iPad? Hmmmm?

Oh, and you can’t charge it via USB.

I can’t wait … to order an iPad 2.
