Motorola Xoom Android Tablet

Motorola is making a big splash in the tablet market with their Android 3.0 (Honeycomb)-powered Xoom tablet which will run on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

Here’s the lowdown on the XOOM. It’s a 10.1″ touchscreen weighing in at 1.6 lbs running an NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz dual-core processor (this is a pretty popular choice of CPU in this year’s portable gadgets), 1GB RAM and 32GB storage expandable via SD cards.

In addition to the 3G & 4G LTE support, it can act as a 802.11b/g/n WiFi hotspot, and also has Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR + HID.

For video, it’s got a 5MP/720p rear-facing video camera, and can play back 1080p videos.

Just one caveat – it’ll be initially a 3G device when launched in the 1st quarter of this year, but then be upgradeable to 4G later in the year.
