Verizon Wireless & Motorola Mobility announced the Motorola Xoom - dual-core Android 3.0 tablet

We first saw this device right here back when (named back then as the Motorola Everest) Google announced to the world their Android OS primarily built of tablet devices, which is now announced and official as the Android 3.0 Honeycomb. With other companies also trying to break into the limelight their version of a dual-core powered tablet with the likes of  BlackBerry, LG , Acer, Lenovo, and Asus this is Motorola Mobility's (the new company) turn to show off their tablet offering to the public.

Motorola Xoom specs:
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS
  • 10.1-inch widescreen HD display
  • Dual-core 1GHz processor
  • Full 1080p HD support with HDMI-out port
  • 5-megapixel rear camera with 720p video capture
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat
  • Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity (Verizon Wireless)
  • 4G LTE (Verizon Wireless) compatibility with external modem attachment
  • Available Bluetooth keyboard and dock accessories
The device is set to be launched in the first quarter of this year, at least in the US. Pricing has not  been disclosed just yet.

Update: The Android OS built entirely for tablets, Android 3.0 Honeycomb, actually supports a tablet that has a barometer in it. Yup, a barometer which measures atmospheric pressure and eventually tells you if it will rain or not. The only tablet that was announced with Android 3.0 Honeycomb running in it that has a barometer is Motorola's Xoom. (Source: Endgadget)
