Motorola Xoom LTE upgrade delayed too. Bionic and Xoom LTE will launch at the same time, as LTE issues are fixed
Getting a brand new technology into the new devices is never an easy task. Especially when we are talking about next generation communication tech like LTE.
Motorola is learning this the hard way with the launch of it’s next generation LTE devices. Yesterday we’ve heard that Motorola’s first LTE smartphone Droid Bionic launch has been pushed to this summer.
Today, during Q4 earnings conference call, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha confirmed that Motorola Xoom LTE upgrade have been pushed to the summer as well. The delay is due to the software performance problems related to the LTE. The issues both in Bionic and LTE Xoom are related, and both devices will launch at about the same time, as soon as the software problems are resolved.
Later in the CC Sanjay even admitted that the LTE device delays was their own execution screw-up and promised that that shouldn’t happen again. Let’s hope he’s right about that.
