Motorola Xoom Tablet: The New iPad?

Motorola Xoom

Could the new Motorola Xoom Tablet be the iPad’s newest competition? The Motorola Xoom tablet was just revealed at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, and we have a feeling it’s going to be a promising product.

Think of the new Motorola Atrix phone, but in an innovative tablet form. The Motorola Xoom brings something new to the table: it’s different because it supports Adobe Flash (unlike the iPad) and is also the first tablet on the market with a dual-core processor and the powerful Android 3.0 Google software. This software, Honeycomb, has been developed specifically for tablet computers with larger touch screens, like the Motorola Xoom.

With the Motorola Xoom, you’ll be able to take advantage of all of Google’s new services and features, including music, books, apps and video.

The Motorola Xoom also boasts a 10.1-inch high-definition screen, a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 2-megapixel front camera so you can video chat, a 5-megapixel rear camera which takes high-definition videos, and like we said, it supports Adobe Flash (which really brings the content to life). So, it’s basically everything you need and more for on-the-go. Sweet, right?

It has been said that the Motorola Xoom is basically the tablet version of Motorola’s Atrix Android phone, except it runs on Honeycomb (Android designed specifically for tablets). The Xoom will run on the Verizon’s 3G network, but could also be updated later to 4G.

Keep a look out for it when it hits stores soon! Will you be first in line to buy it?
