At CES today, Motorola have launched their tablet device - the Xoom. Questionable name aside, it packs Android, a dual core 1ghz processor (a whopping 2ghz total, for the math impaired of us), a 10.1 inch capacitative screen in a thin and leightweight chassis. What makes this tablet so much better than any other Android based tablet out there is the software - it’s running the as yet unreleased version of Android that’s optimised for tablets - Honeycomb, or Android 3.0.
This is great news as the operating system is completely optimised for tablets, no more half-baked skins and other tweaks to make Android usable on a big screen device.
Some more specs via Gizmodo -
There is also an HDMI output, 1080p HD video support, 720p video shooting, gyroscope, barometer, e-compass, accelerometer. It will be available in Q1 as just a 3G/Wi-fi device, but Q2 as a 4G LTE/Wi-Fi version. And they say you can upgrade the Q1 version to LTE. Oh and there’s Flash support.
