Motorola Xoom is First Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablet

by | Go to comments


It's all world's fastest this and first that at this year's CES. Having already proclaimed having the fastest smartphone, Motorola has also given us the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet, the Motorola Xoom.

The 10.1in (possibly too big?) device packs in Nvidia's Tegra 2 processor backed by 1GB RAM for super speedy performance, while accelerometers and gyros ensure its ready for all the usual tilt based games.

Its 16:10 aspect ratio LCD display sports a high resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels while a 5-megapixel camera sits on the back.

1080p video playback and support for Adobe Flash are also sticks to poke the iPad with while the tablet centric interface of Android 3.0 will make it a much more user-friendly experience than the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. From our brief time playing with the device it certainly seems very slick.

Avilable in Q1 this year, the launch model will be 3G but it will be upgradeable to 4G as well. There's no word on price yet.

More to come.
