Motorola XOOM, the first Android 3.0 Tablet Exclusively for Verizon

Motorola XOOM, the first Android 3.0 Tablet Exclusively for Verizon

Don’t think of it as the money transfer service, Xoom, ‘coz it’s not. It’s the first device that will run the delicious Honeycomb flavor of Google’s Android OS.

Motorola XOOM

Touted at the CES as the “real” iPad killer, the Motorola XOOM boasts a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, providing a combined processing power of 2 GHz (1 GHz each core). There’s 32 GB storage on-board, a 1GB DDR2 RAM, a 10.1-inch high definition display, and a 5 MP rear camera with support for 720p HD video recording. What’s more is the support for the latest LTE network standard or 4G. Do we have to say “hello” to ASUS Eee Pad Slider as well as the Transformer? Perhaps we really need to have a close look at the spec sheet. And if the price of this Motorola XOOM won’t break the $700 mark, I guess we have even more reasons to say that it’s indeed an iPad killer. Check out the concept after the break.

Loved it? Here’s another one:

The Motorola XOOM will be exclusively launched for Verizon Wireless subscribers in the US as a 3G/Wi-Fi enabled tablet by Q1 with an upgrade to 4G LTE in Q2. Motorola said the XOOM will already be a 4G LTE/Wi-Fi enabled when it ships in Q2. I highly doubt we are going to see this here in the Philippines before Q2 ends, but who knows? Unless Motorola has word about it. Let’s see… [via]
