The Motorola Xoom, it was semi-announced when a cheap looking 3d render of the evolution of tablets made fun of the iPad as being a giant phone. It shrouded underneath some mysterious veil that attempted to build up some cheesy suspense. But then it was revealed!
Though our eyes watched and looked at the external hardware, we literally where blown away by its internal hardware and capabilities. With crazy amounts of Dual-Core love and 1080p video playback on a 1280 by 800 screen. It wasn’t just that, it was the fact that our green google buddy came along with its new fangle dangle 3.0 Honeycomb operating system (Which now confirms to being tablet specific…for now).
Yes the tablet has what we call in the industry “a crap-load of features” and even after being impressed, we definately wanted to ask more. Having the ability to surf at 3g speeds from the beginning and then later be “upgraded” to 4g…does that mean its being pushed out before its 100% ready…because we’ve seen what happens with that (Nudge: Logitech + Google). We wonder if the 4G LTE antenna its just not ready or if the antenna will be enabled when all markets are green lighted for smooth high bandwidth radiation poisoning. Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
