we said you could, truthfully quite the easy task. They didn't make this machine to stop you from doing so, but doing so will VOID your warranty. Keep that in mind. Another good thing to keep in mind is that the following method will ERASE your tablet.

last week to take a peek at this device at Mobile World Congress 2011, but as our good pal Chris Davies had the opportunity, it didn't make a moment of sense not to turn another peek at the device out in the wild. This is the Vodafone-branded version of the tablet and it does not fail to impress.
Hamburger fairy again, this time to provide us with a series of wallpapers cut directly from the heart of Honeycomb. As you know, the Android 3.0 Honeycomb SDK has JUST been released, but the XOOM, aka the Motorola XOOM, the big gun, the first and most optimized Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet, isn't released yet. You and I have seen these backgrounds floating around the tablet before though, thusly this is an exciting moment for lovers of new backgrounds.
Euro Silver metal version, now there's this, what they're calling their Limited Gold Edition. This edition has apparently been given away exclusively to "movie star nominees" - does this mean Banksy got one?
locked bootloader, Motorola Mobility's Twitter account has just gone ahead and tweeted the fact that the XOOM will have an unlockable and lockable bootloader. This function will, they say, enable developers to access hardware for development, and as they don't say, allow hackers to sing and dance with the system, tearing it down to the ground and remaking it in their own image.
Motorola XOOM - but the quest to put the tablet SDK on all manner of other devices continues with the Nexus One. Google's first Nexus phone has been married up with Honeycomb by the skilled tinkerers at xda-developers, rooted and given a quick tweak to make sure the display works in landscape and that the app drawer is functional. Unfortunately, there's a lot more broken than working right now, so you probably don't want this as your everyday OS. Phone, WiFi, the accelerometer, sound, the camera, Bluetooth and 3D acceleration aren't functional, but if you've been wondering how a tablet-centric OS will look on a 3.7-inch display, now's your chance.

XOOM, paying special close attention to the stories about the XOOM being a Carphone Warehouse exclusive in the UK, and the XOOM silver Euro Edition hands-on we picked up whilst in Barcelona this past week at Mobile World Congress.
