Motorola Xoom is an Android 3.0 Tablet




Motorola has officially unveiled their very own tablet called the Motorola Xoom and it will come with Google’s tablet OS, Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Check out the video below.

Motorola Xoom
10.1″ capacitive display @ 1280×800 pixels
Dual-core NVidia Tegra 2 CPU @ 1.0GHz
1024MB RAM
5MP autofocus camera w/ dual LED flash
720p HD video recording
2MP secondary front-facing camera
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA
HDMI output
Bluetooth 2.1
Android 3.0


 

The Acer Iconia Tab and Asus Eee Pad now have a new sparring partner.

Too bad it’s will work only on a CDMA network (that’s why it’s locked with Verizon) but they might just introduce an international version for GSM.

  14. Night says:

    two things that will probably keep me from buying this, a. price b. android market’s local support(or lack of)

  15. Mga futang ina ninyo, suportahan ninyo ang gawang Pinoy eheste Intsik – PLDT Telpad FTW, haha

    Anyway, Notion Ink Adam ang killer device ngayon. Pixel Qi, FTW!

  16. wilde says:

    hahaha idiot! (you know who you are)

  17. lolipown says:

    @Maling Akala
    alin ung tablet na mukhang aPad clone?

    I’m interested in the Adam too but I’ll wait for an actual release of the device before shelling out cash.

  18. wannabee says:

    yehey! for sure hindi papatalo ang iPad2

  19. wakocoke says:

    honeycomb honeycomb honeycomb!

  20. mond says:

    Damn! I want that ironman-like-futuristic pc to be a reality rather than the tablet. Can’t wait ’til that happens. lol

  21. @lolipown,

    uhm, clone ng nanay mo.

  25. Mamamayang Pilipino says:

    @Al: ur just degrading ur self man hahaha!
    balik ka nalang ng elementary pre hehehe

  26. al says:

    I know right, thats why I corrected myself…

  27. al says:

    Yuga deserves my apology, I was on another site reading the same article and saw differnt number for the ram and impulsively ranted then realized that it was the same thing. Enough explaining, I still lookd stupid. Bow

  28. Ryan Ang says:

    I wouldn’t expect an official release of this here in the Philippines. Unless imports will pop up through the Greenhills channels.

    of course, no CDMA, only wifi. GSM? sabagay meron ngang Milestone e..

  29. Eason says:

    Maybe bayantel will get the tablet since they are a CDMA network :)

    I’m still holding off from buying an iPad for this. The Galaxy Tab is nice but I find the screen too small for long term browsing and reading comics (which I’ve been doing lately on a borrowed iPad hehehe).

    The hardware specs of the Motorola Xoom are really impressive and I like the screen resolution which is perfect for a 10-inch slate (1280×800!). Also it looks like Tegra 2 is powerful enough to play HD videos which complements the screen as well (good for 720p!). No transcoding of videos here so it’s much more convenient.

    Of course we still have to see if Honeycomb will be a great O.S. and if the applications for such a device are as comprehensive as the iPad (especially games). I expect the price of this tablet to be even higher than the Galaxy Tab which will deter a lot of first time slate buyers.

    I wonder if Samsung will make a 10-inch slate with Super AMOLED screen :)

  31. Benchmark33 says:

    Sayang…wala nang factory ang Motorola dito sa PH, mabilis sana magkaron dito if they still have factory here. But anyway, I hope it would be cheap…pero I think it will cost around 25k or more…

  32. raymac says:

    this gadget was just awarded the best gadget for CES 2011….worth waiting for for..in 2 to 3 months i hope…

  33. sleepygeepy says:

    Let’s hope that this will be one of many iPad competitors to come. More choices, better competition, and hopefully cheaper prices :)

    The question now is whether Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) will be successful as a slate O.S. and if there will be many applications available when slates like Motorola Xoom come on sale. The hardware is already here, it’s the software that needs catching up :)

    Some Tegra 2 tables that we might see very soon:

    – Notion Ink Adam
    – Toshiba Folio 100
    – Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
    – LG G-Slate
    – Acer Iconia
    – Dell Streak
    – Viewsonic G-Tablet

  34. lolipown says:

    @sleepygeepy
    it’s always a good decision to wait for the hardware revision (in the case of the ipad) or more competition (Honeycomb tablets)

  35. ira-78 says:

    ay sana ma-release kagad. baka naman hanggang announce lang. delubyo na, hindi pa lumalabas. january na, wala pa ring archos 101 na mabibili kagad dito sa pinas (yung episyal ha, hindi gray market). notion ink, wala rin. nagkandatulo lang ang laway ko.

  36. ishikagawa says:

    • Heira says:

      @marc209 is it true indeed? Been looking for a charger for ages. Any specific voltage of that generic charger? The original one is 12V.
