    I ordered my Xoom Wi-fi only from Amazon, but the seller instead sent me a 3G/4G version of Xoom.

    It works fine, no issues. It asked me about activating my Mobile network a couple of times but now it doesn't (good for me :) )

    I'm kinda new to Honeycomb and I intend to use my Xoom for development purposes like modifying the kernel, ROMs and such. Would the 3G/4G version of Xoom cause any problems for these ? Other than for dev - any known issues on this model compared to the WiFi only ?

    Thanks

    Except for the time it takes the 3g/4g zoom to get updates, there's not much of a difference

    sorry but that makes no sense to me at all, I have the 4 g conversion done on mine... Aside from the 4 g radio there is absolutely no difference with the wifi only , what update would 1 get that the other did not?

    The only difference would be when you're on the go. You will need to hunt down wifi to get anything vs. been connected all the time on the 3G/4G.

    I'm talking about how long it takes for them to roll out b/c of the Verizon authentication process(bunch of bull****). The wifi version always gets the updates first.
