Motorola Xoom, Android 3.0 tablet, headed to Verizon

The Consumer Electronic Show held in Las Vegas brought the best in electronics but two of the gadgets most talked about over the weekend were the Motorola Xoom and the LG G-Slate, both to be running on Android 3.0, dubbed Honeycomb. They are both slated to be released in Q1 but question remains which will be the tablet to get

Motorola seems to have made a name for itself in the Android world, but one thing is for sure that their lack in providing system updates has left a sour taste in consumers mouths. Ever since the partnership between Verizon and Motorola that has changed a bit. They have been providing updates for their higher end phones and have been trying to change their rep. Now they will be releasing with Verizon the XOOM tablet.

1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 will power this tablet and will be released for 3G but 4G connectivity will be made available as an update in Q2. Other specs include a 1280 x 800 resolution, 5 megapixel camera, 720p video recording and 1080p video playback, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and finally, a healthy 32GB of onboard storage.


  1. Very true, Motorola does lack in software updates but its a hard decision since i feel both are going to be great products ....specially since they are both running on honeycomb .....i think it will be a decision made on the brand that you like the most.

  2. Evening though they have gotten better, can't trust them. But this tablet does look great and the specs are awesome. We'll just have to wait and see what LG's G-Slate will offer.
