Motorola Xoom Enters Tablet Market

The tablet market just got a bit bigger -- Motorola announced it will release the Xoom at the end of February and will use Android’s Honeycomb software. The tablet is expected to be a major competitor against the tablet market’s top seller - the Apple iPad.

We’re examining the tablet talk from CNET, PC World, Examiner.com, and The International Business Times.

A reporter for CNET got his hands on a Xoom
and says both the hardware and software are excellent, especially for Android.

“The OS itself, Honeycomb, on the tablet does a lot of stuff that Android hasn't done well historically on the tablet-sized devices yet. It’s killer email, Web-browsing’s really great, the actual repositioning of apps and widgets on the screen and being able to drag down different UI elements, and the repositioning of the settings down in the corner, and the contextual menu buttons up at the top, overall they control a lot of thoughts going into it.”

A writer for PC World also got to test the Xoom. And while she praised the tablet’s image quality and design, she said a major drawback was its size.

“The Xoom's design is optimized for use in landscape mode....At 10.1-inches...the unit felt heavy in-hand, especially for when I'd switch to a single-handed view. That observation tracks with the Xoom's announced 1.6 pound-weight, which is 0.1 pounds more than Apple's first-generation iPad.”

Xoom has even launched its own Super Bowl ad - taking a jab at Apple’s iconic 1984 commercial that launched the first Macintosh computer. A writer for Examiner.com explains why Xoom is the new rebel in an Apple-dominated market. (Video Source: CNET)

“[T]he Mac ad was about the Macintosh saving us from "Big Brother" (AKA, the IBM PC). Since the advent of the iPhone, the App Store, and Apple's iron fist around the iOS and what can, and can't be installed on it, some have accused Apple of turning into Big Brother.”

But can the Xoom compete against the market-heavyweight iPad? A writer for International Business Times says - definitely.
