Motorola XOOM tablet officially unveiled with Android 3.0

XOOM zooms into CES 2011 as first Android 3.0 touting tablet

After a lengthy period of teasing Motorola has officially unveiled its first tablet device, a 10.1-inch offering dubbed the Motorola XOOM that will run Google’s tablet-centric Android 3.0 mobile operating system, Honeycomb.

First spotted when Google’s Andy Rubin took the device on stage to demo the upcoming Android 3.0 software, and later confirmed by a leaked patent filing, the newly named Motorola XOOM features a healthily plump set of specs with an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor running a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800p display capable of handling 16:9 cinema-spec video content.

Touted by Motorola as a product that “redefines the tablet device category by providing more ways to have fun, connect with friends and stay productive on the go”, the XOOM will attack the tablet market crown through the inclusion of a number of features omitted from Apple’s iPad. Sporting two cameras, a 2-megapixel front-facing number alongside a 720p HD video recording capable 5-megapixel snapper on the rear, the XOOM will play host to one of the iPad’s biggest pitfalls as the new Android 3.0 OS allows for full Adobe Flash Player 10.1 compatibility.

Packing 32GB of in-built storage, expandable via SD card, Motorola’s Android powered tablet is to land in the US during the first quarter of 2011 with in-built Wi-Fi and 3G as standard. At present UK release dates and pricing have yet to be announced.

For all the latest on the goings on from CES 2011 stay tuned to T3.com and the T3 CES 2011 websites including a full hands-on with the Motorola XOOM and Google’s Android 3.0 OS.
