Great Deal on a Great Product!
on March 4, 2013
Have to state this was the second of these I received. First one never should have gotten out the door.
Good news here is the great Amazon return policy took it back, refunded my money with shipping almost immediately,
and I was able to order this unit the next day for overnight delivery. Great job! No worries ordering this way again!
The unit is as advertised. Plain box, the tablet in a bubble bag and a charger. No four color packaging,
fancy manuals or start up guides. All that stuff you either throw out or misplace anyway!
I charged this one enough to be sure it worked then took it down to the local Verizon store.
They happily put in the SIM card, added it to my account (for a fee, of course) as "customer supplied hardware",
and I was on the way home mapping our drive in 4G glory in about 30 minutes.
If the store you are in tells you otherwise, find a different store. I have shopped around the three different
Verizon company stores in my area and this one is the best. Would they "support" it? Probably not, I didn't buy it there.
They did send an email of "congratulations on your new tablet" with links for help on all the features!
As for the tablet, I love it! Light, fast, great panel for my bad eyes. I had an original Xoom that met its end
with a water bottle accident. Thankfully I had bought "the whatever happens it's covered" warranty online. I did
order a TPU wrap like the original Xoom had on it.
I got it on my home Wi-fi, input my Gmail account, then ran the OS upgrade. 30 minutes later, Ice Cream Sandwich! Haha!
Configured the included Dijit app to take advantage the built in IR Blaster. Now I control my TV and Receiver from it.
Installed "Universal Remote" to control my HTPC. Remote Potato for remote viewing. Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime,...and
all those Angry Birds that need my help all over again!
It was a bummer to lose my constant home digital companion but happy the way this worked out!!
