Motorola finally announces the XOOM Tablet

| January 5, 2011 | Reply

What has been one of the most talked about devices approaching CES, Motorola has finally announced the XOOM Tablet!  We saw some video highlights earlier today showcasing the “Built Entirely For Tablet” Honeycomb 3.0 which we are still drooling over, and rightfully so, the only missing piece has been the hardware.  The XOOM is headed for Verizon Wireless as a 3G/Wi-Fi-enabled device in Q1 2011 with an upgrade to 4G LTE in Q2. Starting in Q2 2011 the Motorola XOOM will be a 4G LTE/Wi-Fi- enabled device.  So for now the rumors of no initial LTE have been confirmed, but the fact that it is upgradeable is definitely a saving grace.

The Motorola XOOM will feature the following:

  • 10.1-inch Wide-screen HD display
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS
  • Full 1080p HD support with HDMI-out port
  • Dual-core 1GHz processor
  • 5-megapixel rear camera with 720p video capture
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat
  • Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity (Verizon Wireless)
  • 4G LTE compatibility with external modem attachment
  • Available Dock, and Bluetooth accessories

Check out the Official Press Release below and be sure to drop us a comment on this one.  Is this the XOOM you thought we would see, or is there something missing that’s driving you towards the competition?
