CES : Another Android 3.0 Tablet–Motorola XOOM
Well as we all know Tablet PCs are the in-thing. We tell you enough about them here on MightyGadget but that’s just because everyone else seems to want a part of them. If you want to blame someone blame Apple for the iPad, simple. The next one in line is the Motorola Xoom another Android 3.0 toting device shown off this week at CES. Not only did Motorola show it (obviously) but Google’s main man Andy Rubin actually used this tablet pre-Motorola showing, to show off Android 3.0, read into that what you will, but i reckon he thinks it’s pretty good. I’m sure you will too.
- Nvidia Tegra 2 Dual-Core (yes Tegra 2 Dual-Core) processor.
- 10.1” 1280 x 800p display (16:9 cinema aspect ratio too)
- Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS
- 2MP Front Facing Camera
- 5MP Rear-Facing Camera
- 720p Video Capture
- Full Adobe Flash 10.1 compatability
- 32GB on board storage expandable via microSD
- WiFi and 3G as standard
Now as you can see ther this surely is a tablet to be reckoned with, everything about it screams greatness from the dual-core processor to the Flash support to the new Android OS. Motorola have said the XOOM “redefines the tablet device category by providing more ways to have fun, connect with friends and stay productive on the go”. They have also said it will be available in the States in the first quarter of this year but haven’t named any prices as yet or when we will get a UK release.
