Motorola XOOM promo teases the tablet's capabilities
posted by Alex I. / Jan 26, 2011, 8:47 AM
If a leaked screenshot is to be believed, the Motorola XOOM is to launch on February 17 with a contract-free price of $699, so it's likely we're only a few weeks away from the moment when we will be able to grab this tablet from the shelves. Until then, read our hands-on on the tablet and take a look at the video below.

I think the price is too high personally for this. I understand the hardware is slick, but the Blackberry Playbook is a cool 200$ less than this unles Blackberry changes its mind on its price estimate, and this is also more expensive than the Ipad which has the brand name tied into it. Also unlike the playbook or Ipad, its only on Verizon, so that limits who can get it.

Great device, but they should definitely create a GSM/3G/LTE version for it! This is a great alternative to the iPad. We'll just have to see what Apple has up its sleeve and whether it can keep up. USB ports, 5MP camera and hopefully a good media player will make this an attractive alternative. Having to constantly sync with iTunes, having to change video formats( from avi to h.263) and a rumoured 1MP camera for the iPad don't look too promising.. :-(
