The Motorola XOOM which has been released this quarter at CES in Las Vegas, has been quite the topic of discussion in a lot of internet communities. The Motorola XOOM is the first tablet entirely designed and produced by Motorola, and also the first of many tablets running on Google’s new Android for tablets (also known as Honeycomb)
A 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 CPU will power this 10.1-inch tablet. It has built in WiFi and 3G connectivity and also support for 4G which will be enabled at a later stage via software update. Other specifications include, a 1280 x 800 resolution @ 160DPI, 5 megapixel camera, 720p video recording and 1080p video playback, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and finally, a healthy 32GB of onboard storage. The battery is rated to be capable of supporting 10 hours of video. Additional features include barometer, front facing 2mp camera, and built in speaker.
The specs and features on this tablet make it an awesome contender to the iPad. Comparison tables show that this tablet has; a slightly larger screen, considerably faster CPU, bigger resolution, larger RAM and built in camera.
For now the Motorola XOOM tablet is definitely a massive upgrade from an iPad, however this could all change when the soon to be released iPad 2 is unveiled.
