postheadericon Motorola will upgrade your Xoom to 4G LTE — even if you’ve rooted it

Happy news for Android tinkerers everywhere — Motorola has officially confirmed it will attempt to perform its 4G upgrade on all Verizon Wireless-riding Xoom tablets it receives from users, whether they’ve been rooted, repainted, or accessorized with fluffy dice. Naturally, the company can’t guarantee successful software updates on devices that have had their OS tweaked, so it asks users to be kind and rewind to the original firmware state. For those unwilling to stretch that far back, Moto will still give it a shot and says that it’ll install the 4G LTE modem at a minimum. What a refreshingly open-minded attitude. Now if Moto could give us an open-minded bootloader on its phones as well, we’d be all set.

postheadericon HTC 7 Pro now available on O2 Germany, €22 monthly or €599 up front

Not that we had any reason to doubt O2 Germany’s Twitter account, but a formal press release does help ease our few concerns. The HTC 7 Pro is now official on the European carrier for the asking price of €29 down and 24 months of €22.50. If you want to rip the proverbial band-aid off faster, it’s also available for a €599 flat fee — both of those without SIM lock. The rest of the world? We imagine it’s just a matter of time before HTC offers this through its other channels.

postheadericon Nexus S sees UK SIM-free price chopped to £430, Best Buy’s Christmas deliveries not so guaranteed

The UK price for the Nexus S just became a whole lot (nearly 22 percent) more attractive, thanks to the Carphone Warehouse slashing the SIM-free purchase option to a sweet £429.99 ($668). Contract-saddled pricing has also taken a tumble, as the Nexus S can now be had for free on two-year agreements costing £30 ($47) per month. Good news all around, then, but be aware that the handset is now listed as being on back order, having been “in stock” earlier in the week. Speaking of delays, we’re also hearing Best Buy’s guaranteed Christmas delivery — something proudly signposted on the Nexus S online order page — might very well miss Santa’s delivery window. A couple of our readers have received emails from the retailer advising them that their Gingerbread packages will be shipped “within the next 1-2 weeks,” but might not get there by December 24th. So happy holidays and best of luck!

[Thanks, Taylor and Rod]
