An Amazing Tablet PC: The MOTOROLA XOOM Android Tablet

Review: MOTOROLA XOOM Android Tablet (Wi-Fi)

I have been interested in getting a tablet PC for some time but was not really up for getting an Apple iPad because, ironically, I found it too mainstream.

I wanted something new that nobody else with tablets had and I wanted it to be able to play Flash video which I would be watching a lot of.  Enter the best tablet that is not an iPad.  And, truthfully, for my money, this is better than an iPad.  The name:  The The MOTOROLA XOOM Android Tablet

The reviews of this tablet, which are just coming in, are terrific.  And the features?  Abundant.  From the Amazon page, here is a listing of the various features of this tablet:


  • Next-generation tablet with 10.1-inch HD display, Android 3.0 platform, and ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core mobile processor; support for Adobe Flash for viewing web sites, movies, games, and more
  • Front-facing 2-megapixel camera and microphone for video chats; rear 5-megapixel camera with LED flash for high-res stills and HD 720p video
  • 32 GB internal memory; HDMI output; microSD expansion (with software upgrade)
  • Up to 10 hours of video playback/Wi-Fi web browsing

For my money though, this was about the three “P’s”:  price, performance, and picture.

The price right now for the Xoom tablet is just $599.  The performance–dual core mobile processor. 

And the picture is what I love best.  This bad boy can play movies in full screen AND play Flash files, which, in my mine, sets this ahead of the Apple ipad.
