MOTOROLA's Android 3.0 Honeycomb powered tablet Xoom arrives in Europe in the second quarter with WiFi-only and WiFi/3G versions going on sale.
Announced by Motorola Mobility to be precise, the Xoom has a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 10.1-inch widescreen HD 720p capable display with 1280x800 resolution.
It also has an HDMI out port, a 5MP rear-facing camera for 720p video capture and a 2MP front-facing camera for video teleconferencing, a gyroscope, barometer, e-compass, accelerometer and adaptive lighting.
Its battery is able to provide up to 10 hours of video playback according to Motorola. With Honeycomb comes Google Maps 5.0 with 3D interaction and Flash support.
Announced at the Consumer Electronics Show, Xoom's pricing has appeared to fluctuate wildly with prices on etailers sites of around £1,300 with VAT, while a price half that of £720 was knocking around at the beginning of the year.
While Honeycomb had been eagerly awaited, demonstrations of the Android tablet operating system have met with less than stellar reviews.
The SDK is already out for Honeycomb, as Google released it towards the end of January. µ
