Motorola is finally giving its Xoom WiFi owners the gift of Android Movie rentals.

The company confirmed via Twitter today that owners of the WiFi version of the tablet can now access and rent movies via the Android rental service, which Google announced in May. With the update, Xoom owners will see a "Movies" tab added to the tablet's Android Market app.

Sadly, the new feature isn't open to everyone. As with other devices, owners of rooted Xoom WiFi tablets won't be able to partake in the fun, as Google is actively blocking such users from accessing the service. That's the price you pay for gadget openness, it seems.
