Naturally, most of the buzz around the Motorola XOOM comes from the fact that it's the first tablet to run Google's tablet-optimized Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system. This will bring a lot more functionality to the device, as all the core apps will be redesigned so as to allow the user to take full advantage of the much greater screen size, compared to what you get on a smartphone. Even widgets will be revamped, bringing new features, tastefully dressed in a brand new and shiny interface. In addition, the tablet will feature all the known goodies that we love like an accelerometer, gyroscope and of course, Adobe Flash 10.1 Player support.
To tell you the truth, we're really excited about this new software and hope to be able to get our hands on it as soon as possible. Thankfully, we won't have to wait for too long, as the device will become available with Verizon Wireless in the first quarter of the year, equipped with a good old 3G radio. Relax, relax, the Motorola XOOM will also launch with 4G built-in later this year. But do you know what's the good stuff? All 3G XOOMs will be upgradeable to 4G LTE! Yeey!
