Motorola Xoom: Motorola’s First Tablet Featuring Android 3.0 Honeycomb

Motorola XOOM redefines the tablet device category by providing more ways to have fun, connect with friends and stay productive on the go. Motorola XOOM is the first device to incorporate Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Google’s powerful new operating system developed from the ground up specifically for tablets. Boasting a best-in-class dual core processor, the stylishly thin Motorola XOOM offers a ground-breaking mobile computing experience.

It is the first tablet to connect to the new Google Mobile Innovation service offering books, music and movies – anytime, anywhere – and all in HD optimized for Motorola XOOM’s 10.1-inch widescreen (16:10).

  • High-definition (1280x800) 10.1-inch widescreen (16:10) display, perfect for watching HD video in landscape mode and narrow enough for convenient two-handed on-screen typing in portrait mode
  • The smallest 10.1-inch tablet available, yet delivers 51 percent more video than the leading competitor relative to the front of the device
  • Unique dock options allow HD content streaming to TV and easy connection to PC accessories like mouse and keyboard devices
  • Includes a fully functioning HD camcorder and a 5MP camera to view and edit videos and photos immediately
  • 4G LTE upgradable

Motorola is also working to jump start the ecosystem expansion that will result from the launch of Motorola XOOM with a new version of the Android OS. Motorola has been collaborating closely with innovative application partners across a variety of categories, including gaming, entertainment, and business productivity, to optimize their applications for this new category of mobile computing devices.
