Motorola Xoom announced: Android 3.0 Honeycomb dual-core tablet with a 10.1-inch screen

Of all the Android tablets we’ve seen, this is the best looking one yet. The Motorola Xoom, despite it’s x-tastic name, is a serious looking bit of kit.

The Xoom is a 1GHz dual-core monster with a 10.1-inch widescreen HD display and it runs on Android 3.0/Honeycomb – the first version of Android that’s been designed to work on tablets.

There’s two cameras, a main 5-megapixel one that captures 720p HD video, and a 2-megapixel front-facing job for video calls over 3G and Wi-Fi.

Google Maps 5.0, complete with tilting action and lovely 3D buildings, comes included on the Xoom as does access to the new Google eBook library.

So far there’s no UK release date for the Motorola Xoom, but we’ve been told by Motorola that it will be arriving on these shores. We hope that it’ll arrive round about the time that it hits the US shelves, which is just a tentative Q1 launch date at the moment.
