Review Motorola Xoom WiFi/UMTS Tablet/MID


ZOOM ZOOM.The first 10.1" Motorola tablet goes by the name XOOM.

Fan / silent operation; Large memory; 5 MP digicam; Good power management

Reflective display surface; Unusable microSD slot; Lack of controls on the device; Often crashes; Isn't recognized by Vista

Despite some small drawbacks, the Xoom still manages to fill one of the top sports in our TOP 10 tested tablets (German).

Motorola Xoom 32GB 3G + Wifi Android Tablet


The one that started it all i.e. Motorola's Xoom, was the first commercially available tablet to rock Google's Honeycomb OS. Launched in early 2011, Motorola took their own sweet time in b

At Rs. 35,590 the Motorola Xoom’s only other competitor is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 750. Both are almost equally powerful and have similar feature sets, except for the fact that the Tab 750 has only 16GB of internal memory as opposed to 32GB on the Xoom....

Motorola Xoom Review


Motorola Xoom Review - this in-depth review of the Motorola Xoom covers the pro and cons of the first tablet running on Android 3.0, aka Honeycomb

Overall the Motorola Xoom is one of the best tablets available on the market, featuring great performance, an efficient user interface and a good multimedia experience. However, the software is still a bit unstable, I had a few applications crash...

Motorola Xoom 4G LTE (Verizon Wireless)


Editors' note: The Xoom is upgradable from 3G to Verizon's 4G LTE network. This requires that you ship your Xoom to Motorola for the upgrade. While you can expect faster download speeds, once your Xoom is upgraded, all other details remain identical as...

With Google's next generation of Android, Motorola's knack for great hardware, and Verizon's promise of 4G network compatibility, the Xoom tablet technically offers a more powerful, more capable alternative to Apple's iPad.

It's expensive, slightly heftier than the iPad, and novice users may balk at Android 3.0's read-the-manual attitude. Adobe Flash not yet supported.

The Xoom's spec sheet is enough to make any tablet tremble, but the price is high and Google still has some work to do before its tablet software experience is as fleshed out and intuitive as Apple's.

Motorola XOOM review: The Big Bang


Phones far and wide wanted to be the iPhone killer and you know what – tablets are no different. The iPad needs to get used to living with a bounty on its head. And always be ready for the likes of the Motorola XOOM. But the XOOM is no ordinary...

10.1” capacitive touchscreen of 1280 x 800 pixel resolution; multi-touch ; 730g of weight ; Dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity; Wi-Fi hotspot ; Optional 3G connectivity (data only) – HSPA or 1xEV-DO (LTE via upgrade) ; GPS...

Seems quite laggy despite the 1GHz dual-core CPU ; Screen is very reflective, hard to use outdoors ; Quite a porker at 730 grams ; No kickstand – it cannot be stood up on a table without a dock ; Non-replaceable battery ; Can’t charge off USB ;...

But the XOOM is no ordinary competitor. We’re talking the first Honeycomb tablet, a cornerstone for Android. It’s Motorola’s first tablet too. If they play their cards right, it could be a big money earner for a company in trouble, so we know Moto gave...

Motorola Xoom (titanium)


Editors' note: Motorola's Xoom tablet was originally released in February 2011 as the first tablet to run Google's tablet-optimized Android 3.0 software. Since that time, it has undergone numerous software updates, as well as a 4G hardware update....

The first tablet to combine Google's Android 3.0 software (now upgradable to Android 4.0), Motorola's knack for great hardware, and Verizon's 4G network, the Xoom tablet technically offers a more powerful, more capable alternative to Apple's original...

It's expensive, heftier than the iPad 2, and novice users may balk at Android's read-the-manual attitude.

Despite some useful features, the Xoom's high price and bulky design make it a less than desirable tablet offering.

We’re Xoomin', and It Feels Pretty Good


Motorola gives us the Xoom, the first of the Honeycomb-powered Android tablets.

Big, widescreen display offers plenty of room for video and for reading. Fast 1-GHz processor promises great performance for future games and apps. Honeycomb simplifies and optimizes the Android interface for tablets. Dual cameras and an optional...

Rear-facing speakers don't do justice to any kind of audio. The button thing is weird. Honeycomb seems to have some bugs to work out. No support for Adobe Flash–based content

Motorola Xoom (Verizon)


The first Android 3.0 tablet features innovative software and 4G capability, but buggy performance and a limited number of compelling apps at launch hold this slate back.

In some ways, the Motorola Xoom is a bona fide next-generation tablet. Android 3.0 feels like a thoroughly modern and thoughtful OS, and the software and hardware work well together in certain respects, such as the high-quality video chats via the...

Motorola Xoom Review: The First Honeycomb Tablet Arrives


A year has passed without a significant Android competitor to Apple's iPad. Today that all changes as Google and Motorola unveil the world's first Honeycomb tablet: the Xoom. With better hardware than the original iPad, read on as we find out just how...

I have to say, this is a lot better than I expected. Honeycomb feels a lot like Google’s take on iOS without sacrificing any of what makes Android unique. It’s a healthy combination of the appliance-like iOS without giving up any of the user facing...

Motorola XOOM Review


Motorola's big launch of CES 2011 and the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet on the market, the Motorola XOOM has a lot to live up to. In its haste to reach Verizon shelves, the XOOM could seem a little half-baked; it doesn't get Flash Player support...
