Android Honeycomb Tablet
With the entire consumer electronics industry collectively diving into the tablet market we are being flooded with a variety of devices and options to choose from. One of the latest and greatest devices to launch is the Motorola Xoom.
The Xoom sports Android version 3.0, also known as Honeycomb which is the first Android OS designed specifically for the tablet form factor. It has an improved notification panel, easy home screen customization, a desktop like web browsing experience, google mail with two pane user interface (email app offers multipane view and unified email box).
Another feature that is nice is the Micro SD Card slot allowing you to increase your memory or switch out memory cards as needed. The iPad comes with internal memory and that’s all she wrote. No expandable memory.
The Xoom has a 5 MP Camera with Dual LED Flash and HD Video Capture which is pretty much standard now for tablets.
You can transfer information between your computer(s) by tethering to the micro USB port. This port is not for charging, however. The Xoom has a single pin charging port. I’m not sure why you can’t charge with the Micro USB port. Personally, I think it would have been better to charge the device with the many Micro USB adapters I already have.
Motorola Xoom specs
Optimized document viewing on large 10.1″ HD display – Good sized real estate on the screen. The tablet market seems to be dividing itself up by screen size with the Playbook and Kindle Fire, Kobo Vox and others coming in at the 7″ mark and the Xoom, iPad and others opting for the larger screen space.
A 1 GHz dual-core processor and 1GN DDR2 Ram
OTA upgradable to future tablet software releases
Rapid charge technology lets you charge approx 50% faster which is great for days when you are relying on your Xoom for your entertainment and productivity needs.
Scratch resistant screen – this is great for people like me who tend to be a little rough on the their devices. I still recommend a screen protector though because you can’t be too careful!
Optimize document viewing on the large 10.1″ HD widescreen display (1280 by 800 wvga) and of course, lets not forget to mention the support for Adobe Flash 10.0 This is a big deal for some people who like to have access to websites built using Flash on their mobile devices. The well documented Flash war may be over with Apple holding their hands up in victory but there are still many flash based sites on the internet.
The 2 MP front-facing camera is great for self portraits and for google plus hangouts skype. The HD camcorder with 720p video capture allows you to make some cool movies.
