From Verizon in Q1
Since Andy Rubin showed the prototype of Motorola's tablet running on Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS, it has been filling the news posts and now it is finally officially announced. The Motorola XOOM is a 10.1-inch slate tablet powered by Nvidia's Tegra 2 chip.

The official announcement includes the specifications as well as the fact that this one will be heading to Verizon and will be available in Q1. The 4G connectivity will also be available as an update in Q2 2011. The full specification list includes a 10.1-inch capacitive screen with 1280x800 resolution, a 5 megapixel camera, with 720p video recording, Nvidia's Tegra 2 chip for some 1080p playback, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 and 32GB of SSD storage.

According to Motorola, the battery is powerful enough to keep it going for 10 hours of video playback. Looks good for now and all we need now is the price.

The price needs to be lower than iPAD .. or close the the starting price of iPAD. If it will be overpriced like Apple's stuff .. I won't even consider it.

You are dumb. Its better than IPad, better screen resulution, more powerfull cpu and gpu, 4x of ram?? and 4g connection. Why would they sell it cheaper than ipad?
But i hope it will be cheaper, but thats imposible

Tegra 2 is a 500 mWh chip while Ion + Atom are ... ? But can Tegra 2 do other stuff that the ordinary CPU can in bearable time and still keep its long battery life?


+1 nik, we have something better than the iCrap and people bury it... pathetic!

Nice battery life but... what 1080p playback on a 1280x800 screen?

I think the article is showing what the Tegra 2 is capable of, not why 1080p is available on a smaller screen resolution.
