Refurb Xooms Sold with Personal Info on Them

This could be a nightmare in the making for the hundred or so original owners of Motorola Xoom WiFi tablets that were recently resold: the original owner’s information was never erased and the OS was never returned to its original condition. The tablets were resold on, so if you bought one of these tablets, you may have bought more than you bargained for.

Motorola says if you returned a Xoom tablet to the listed retailers between March and October 2011, you will get a free two year membership to Experian’s ProtectMyID identity protection service.
