The Motorola XOOM is Here!

Approximately 350 media and analysts attended a Motorola Mobility press conference in Las Vegas today to hear CEO Sanjay Jha announce new devices that give consumers new ways to stay connected to their business and personal lives. The highly anticipated, Motorola XOOM, is the company’s first tablet device that will be added to the growing converged mobile portfolio.

So here are some quick specs on Motorola XOOM and what makes this device stand out:
• Motorola XOOM runs on the Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system (the first version of Android developed specifically for tablets).
• It’s the first tablet to feature the latest Google Mobile innovations, including Google Maps 5.0 with 3D interaction with access to over 3 million Google eBooks and Google Talk with video and voice chat.
• The device has a dual-core 1 GHz processor and 1GB of DDR2 RAM that makes it twice as fast as any tablet on the market today.
• It also has a high-definition (1280×800) 10.1-inch widescreen display that is a perfect match for watching HD video in landscape mode and is narrow enough for comfortable two-handed on-screen typing in portrait mode.
• The XOOM also has a 2MP front-facing camera for video chats and runs on Verizon’s 3G network but is upgradeable to 4G LTE as Verizon rolls out 4G LTE service nationwide.
• For those that love to watch videos and play games, it includes Adobe Flash Player 10.1 which some tablets on the market today lack. A full list of specs can be found here.

Motorola XOOM is expected to go on sale later in Q1 2011 but no pricing is available yet.
