Motorola Xoom, the tablet PC which is going to feature Google’s Android Honeycomb, will be released on Feb. 24 by Verizon and is available for pre-order from Best Buy for $799.
The 10-inch tablet has already turned many heads as battle for control of the table market heats up. Surprisingly, the tablet will not come with Adobe Flash support at launch. Verizon says it is expected to do so in the spring,
The probable reason for the delay is Adobe Flash version 10.2, as it will add mobile support to the web-based content platform.
Motorola Xoom comes with 10.1-inch screen and 3D graphics acceleration with display resolution of 1280×800 pixels, which is larger than the Apple iPad, the best selling tablet to date. It packs a 1 GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor to deliver multitasking.
The dual cameras featured in the tablet have an edge over other tablet PCs, as it has a 5-megapixel rear camera recording at 720p and 2-megapixel front camera. The tablet supports 10 hours of video playback similar to Apple's iPad. Input features include multi-touch, 3-Axis Accelerometer, compass, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, gyroscope and barometer.
Xoom will come with standard dock for watching video content or listening to music through external speakers as the device charges. It also will have a custom keyboard with Bluetooth wireless technology and special Android shortcut keys.
The only other tablet PC expected to feature Android Honeycomb soon is the Notion Ink Adam, which will carry similar features.
