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.
