Motorola XOOM Android 3.0 Tablet Revealed

Motorola has introduced details of its first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet at CES 2011. The new tablet will be called the Motorola XOOM and will have a 10.1 inch screen.

The device detailed was first spotted a month or so back when Andy Rubin gave a very brief demonstration on stage although not much was seen at the time as to what OS it was running. As for technical specs, the 10.1 inch screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and can playback 16:9 content.

The device will come with 2 cameras with the one on the front having 2 megapixels and a 5 megapixel camera on the back that can capture video at 720p HD. Adobe Flash 10.1 will be available for the tablet. Essentially, it builds on what the current iPad lacks although the iPad 2 is believed to be around the corner and could further change the game again.

For storage, it will include 32GB and will also be expandable by microSD. Expect it to arrive within the next 2 to 3 months before the end of the first quarter of this year. Pricing and release dates are not known at the moment.

The video below gives a quick rundown of what can be expected from the Motorola XOOM tablet.

    That looks like a great tablet. I am very curious about the price of this thing. If the price will be lower than of the iPad or the Blackberry Playbook, the fight between this tablets will be awesome to watch.
