CES 2011 has been great for tablet, we have seen so many of them including the new ASUS Eee Pads, The Sliding 7 PC from Samsung and yet something seemed missing. Well, the Motorola tablet which Andy Rubin showed off is now official and as expected it is called the Motorola XOOM.
The Motorola XOOM is an Android 3.0 Honeycomb running tablet which is heading to Verizon sometime in Q1, upon launch it won’t have 4G capabilities but it will be upgradable to 4G later in Q2 2010. It sports a 1GHz Dual Core processor, 10.1-inch widescreen HD display, a 2 megapixel front facing camera for video calling, a 5 megapixel rear camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities (hope it is not like the one on Milestone), full 1080p HD support and a HDMI output port. It also has a Bluetooth keyboard and other docs which can be purchased separately.
The device will be LTE capable but it will take some time and will be upgrade in Q2 2011. It has WiFi capabilities and at the moment you can enjoy Verizon 3G.The pricing is not yet confirmed but if you want to purchase it during launch you will have to save up something between $400 and $600.
