Motorola DROID XOOM to access Verizon's 4G network via a separate modem

The Honeycomb-running tablet will get its LTE fix via a separate modem that plugs into its PCI Express slot. This way Motorola manages to keep the tablet cheaper, and those who want to splurge on a 4G contract with Verizon, can still use the tablet...

Tisk Tisk Tisk. This prototype video is very sad indeed. Why would you demo somethign on an old 2.0 technology. I must say the device its self looks horrid. I am certainly looking forward to a 3.0 demo with hopfully a better tablet design. Thankfully the video did not confirm that this was the DROID Xoom cause if it is the ipad has nothing to worry about from an aesthetics point of view. Also the device did not have pinch to zoom and the touch screen was resistive. While they did say the carrier could request certain changes. I would hope that some would put their best foot forward when demoing a device. FAIL

That prototype is the ICD Ultra that is supposed to cost around 250 bucks, it's not a prototype of the Moto Xoom, they show it just so we can get an idea what the LTE modem PCI card will look like...

And I like how it looks. Spec wise its nice too. The ICD, Notion Ink, Moto Tablet, Archos, Viewsonic, Galaxy S Tablet.

Those are the Android Tablets we were looking for.
