    That's exactly the point - the 3G/4G tablets have the radio and are connected to a cell network, but you can't make a phone call? Nuts!

    With all this in mind has anyone with an original smaller Galaxy Tab managed to extract the phone software from it? I know it's form an earlier Android version but may point us all in the right direction! I don't like to say 'never' without having exhausted every possibility (I hasten to add I am not technical enough to examine myself - just 'understand' the technical terms.).

    Doesn't Verizon use LTE for data only? They are still using CDMA for voice right? So there's no making a call with the LTE service on a Xoom. I believe AT&T and Verizon aren't rolling out Voice over LTE until 2013. For now the phones have two radios to handle this. There's no CDMA chip in a Xoom.

    Cheers,

    Basically a problem with the way U.S. cell networks have evolved. The rest of the world is pretty much GSM; in the U.S. we only have the two GSM carriers. Because the carriers like to lock their devices, my thought is the only way to beat that system is to shop around for an unlocked GSM capable tablet (international version), which leaves out the Xoom.
