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.

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 ;...

As we put rubber to road on our Motorola Xoom review, it's important to note that it was only a matter of time before the Android army delivered a

Android 3.0 onboard ; Super fast, super capable ; Front and rear-facing cameras

Motorola Xoom 4G LTE (Verizon Wireless) review: 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 (Wi-Fi)

 

The Wi-Fi Motorola Xoom is a solid Android tablet with Flash support, but it doesn't measure up to the Apple iPad 2 in terms of app selection.

The first Android tablet with Google's tablet-specific Honeycomb OS. Fast. Beautiful, highly responsive touch screen. Flash support. HDMI output for television/computer monitor viewing.

User interface seems overcomplicated at times. While promised in the future, there's no support for SD cards at launch. Android Market selection is short on tablet-specific apps.

Motorola Xoom (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Motorola Xoom for Verizon Wireless is a solid Android tablet with Flash support, but it doesn't measure up to the Apple iPad 2 in terms of app selection.

The first Android tablet with Google's tablet-specific Honeycomb OS. Flash support. Fast. Beautiful, highly responsive touch screen. HDMI output for television/computer monitor viewing.

User interface seems overcomplicated at times. While promised in the future, there's no support for SD cards at launch. Android Market selection is weak for Honeycomb.

The Xoom integrates 802.11n Wi-Fi, is Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR HID compatible and sports 32GB of internal storage and a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, which is optimized to deliver the high performance necessary for a multitasking tablet with an HD...

Review: Motorola Xoom

 

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 With Wi-Fi review

 

The Motorola Xoom tablet is easily the best competition Apple's iPad has ever seen. Sporting a 10.1-inch screen, front and rear cameras, HDMI output, a dual-core processor, and Google's tablet-optimized version of Android, the Xoom is entering the...

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.

Motorola Xoom (Verizon Wireless) Review

 

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...

Innovative interface, Interactive widgets, Strong core Google apps, 4G support coming soon, Google video chat works well, Loud speakers

Narrow viewing angles, Buggy software, Not a lot of compelling tablet-friendly apps, Power button on back, Fairly expensive

Motorola Xoom Review: The First Honeycomb Tablet Arrives

 

With the iPad, Apple built a device that I wanted ten years ago, at a time when my workload wouldn't allow me to use it. I spend most of my days in meetings, producing content, benchmarking and researching. Only the latter is better done on the iPad...
