Description

Motorola XOOM is company's first ever tablet computer. It features a healthy-sized 10.1-inch capacitive screen with a very high resolution of 1280x800, a 5MP HD camcorder (front-facing cam included) and the mandatory dual-core ARM-based Tegra 2 chipset, which will allow for full 1080p HD video playback. The device surely looks sexy, as it has a large widescreen display and a bezel that is quite thin. 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.
