Motorola XOOM gets football flaunt as Chad Ochocinco shows off slate

NFL player Chad Ochocinco has been given early access to a Motorola XOOM tablet, taking to Twitter to say how pleased he is with the 10-inch slate. "I just received the new Motorola Xoom Tablet and its pretty awesome," Ochocinco told his 1.6m+ followers, going on to warn Motorola that "you won't be getting this back!!!!"

Seeding early units to high-profile users seems a sensible sales strategy for Motorola, especially given talk of the XOOM going on sale as early as this month.

    The best thing about this news is that the tablet is functional! Just a few weeks ago they were only showing us videos on the Xoom. The fact that they are confident enough to give one away is a good sign for the Feb launch!
