    XOOM may launch with non-working SD card slot

    KnowYourMobile is reporting that the XOOM will launch with a non-working SD card slot due to an issue with Honeycomb (not the XOOM hardware itself), but that there will be an update "shortly after" the release to fix the issue, according to Moto product manager Mark Notton.

    This makes me wonder if the product is already finished an being manufactured as we speak, otherwise wouldn't they just be able to fix the issue before it goes to the factories to be made? Or is the tablet just going to launch with an unfinished version of Honeycomb?

    Would you rather wait another month or two to get your hands on the tablet so you can get it when that update is ready? I'm sure that 97% of us would much rather have the tablet sooner without the working SD Slot than wait that extra 1-2 months just for a working SD Card.

    Oh, I will definitely buy it without a working SD slot. There are plenty of other ways to transfer data, some of which are even more convenient, like the cloud.

    What I'm most worried about is what else is going to be unfinished in Honeycomb at launch?

    Sounds like the software doesn't support it and the SD slot was a last minute thing. Originally Google was trying to move away from SD cards and to just internal/flash memory. Guess they changed their mind and added it back. 32GB is enough for now, but I look forward to the software update so I can go shopping for a 32GB SD card - assuming I need it anyway.
