Winner of the Best of Show award at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the XOOM also offers support for Adobe Flash Player--enabling you to view the web without compromise.
It runs Google's Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system, which offers a multi-touch, holographic user interface that improves on Android favorites such as widgets, multi-tasking, browsing, notifications and customisation. It also offers the latest Google Mobile innovations, including Google Maps 5.0 with 3D interaction, access to over 3 million Google eBooks and Google Talk with video and voice chat.
The Motorola XOOM features a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video chats over Wi-Fi via Google Talk, as well as a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera (with LED flash for stills) that captures video in 720p HD. The 10.1-inch display delivers console-like gaming performance on its 1280 x 800-pixel display, and it features a built-in gyroscope, barometer, e-compass, accelerometer, and adaptive lighting for new types of applications.

Android 3.0 Honeycomb
Specifically optimized for devices with larger screen sizes such as tablets, the Android 3.0 platform (dubbed Honeycomb) introduces a brand new, truly virtual and "holographic" UI design. With five customisable home screens, you can easily access your favorite live widgets or application shortcuts. Each screen features a familiar launcher to access to all installed applications, as well as a Search box for universal search of apps, contacts, media files, web content, and more.
Multitasking in Android 3.0 is easier than ever, and you can use the Recent Apps list in the System Bar to see the tasks underway and quickly jump from one application context to another. You'll even see a snapshot of the last screen viewed in that app as a visual reminder. The Android onscreen keyboard has also been redesigned to make entering text fast and accurate on larger screen sizes.
Other features in Android 3.0 Honeycomb include:
- Scrollable and stacked widgets let you scroll or flick through content within the widget itself, on the home page, without opening the application.
- Unobtrusive notification system displays icons for different notifications (messages, downloads, system updates, etc.) in the lower right corner. Just touch the digital time display to open the entire notification panel.
- Redesigned YouTube application with a cool 3D gallery.
- Android Market for Android 3.0 is your one-stop-shop for eBooks, games, and applications.

Now for the bad part - it's not a finished product. I have been using Android phones for the last 3 years and their browser is very fast and stable. That's not the case with the Xoom - the browser is slower and it crashes often closing all your tabs. The tablet standby function often doesn't work and the tablet drains battery even if not in use.
Hopefully Motorola will release a firmware update soon with fixes for all of those frustrating issues. I will update my review when that happens. Until then I would recommend this tablet only to the most geeky guys like me who are willing to work with beta software.
UPDATE 16/05: Android 3.1 update is available and it does fix most of the issues. The browser is faster and I haven't experienced crash since the update. However most sites still show mobile phone sized version and there is no setting for user-agent in the browser.
I refuse to even consider anything made by Apple such as the Ipad as it is totally proprietary, and locks you in to iTunes even for simple file transfer.
I was considering waiting for the HP 2760p "convertible" notebook, but at 4 times the price (and weight) for the top end model, which isn't even available yet, decided that the 32GB Motorola Xoom would do everything I wanted, as I already have both a 10" Netbook and a 17" Notebook (top end Dell). I didn't buy the 3G version as I will 'tether' to my smartphone via Bluetooth.
First task was to update with the 'pushed' Honeycomb 3.1 release of Android (3.2 is supposedly available already but is not showing as an available update yet, but I hope it will be soon). With 3.1 installed, the external swappable SDHC card slot is enabled, and, on plugging the Xoom in to a PC's USB port, you are given a choice of internal 32Gb "SD Card" or external SDHC card (slight disappointment that you have to select one or the other, and unplug to switch, but a minor issue in practise). You can then easily drag and drop files to and from the Xoom and PC to install your music/video collections (I believe Motorola also provide some software to 'sync' these items, but I haven't even opened the CD paper sleeve).
The in-built Browser works well, the Android market has a wide selection of Apps, and, using one of them -File Manager HD - I can access any PC or any of my three NAS attached Terastations on my network directly and transfer files in either direction - I don't think you can do that with an iPad!Read more ›
I got the XOOM wifi model from the carphone warehouse a few weeks ago for £250 and it has turned out to be a great buy. I'd like to say I spent weeks agonising over the choices but I didn't. I had originally bought an Arnova 10 G2 which was very good for the £140 price tag apart from the facts that; the screen was just impossible to view from any other angle than front on; the back left was VERY hot after an hours use. So totally useless for myself and daughter to play Angry Birds on or watch Charlie and Lola on!!
CPW 'gracially' allowed an exchange after the few days I had owned it and it was a choice between XOOM and IPAD2. There are plenty of cheaper smaller screen models as well as IPAD size/price models but the XOOM at half the price of the IPAD was very attractive.
I've owned a Macbook for a number of years, so I'm familiar with Apple as opposed to just being anti-Apple. Whilst Apple tend to very easy on the eye and have very good products overall, they are restrictive in what they will allow to run on their systems. Also they have decided to go for the ' I must have the latest and I am willing to pay for it' share of the market so they are almost always the most expensive and not always the best value for money.
Anyway I decided to get the XOOM on; its price; the fact that it had a clear, large, responsive screen, viewable from several angles; it appeared to have enough hardware to make it useful (dual core, 1gb ddr2, 32gb flash disk)
So here's my plus-minus list for what it's worth:-
1. Came with Android Honeycomb 3.Read more ›
The pros -
The hardware has excellent build quality. The touch screen is extremely responsive and video is amazing! The processors are powerful and the cameras are far superior to that found on another well known tablet. Honeycomb is a winner (nearly see below) it allows multiple customisations -your Xoom will look and feel unique, it's easy to use and the browser is close to desktop experience. HTML5 and Flash for unparallelled internet experience. The in built apps such as email make excellent use of the screen. The battery easily lasts 8 hours on heavy use or 15 hours for just checking the odd email and light browsing. Multitasking is a breeze!
The cons -
The tablet weighs the same as the ipad1 so is slightly too heavy for using as an e-reader. Honeycomb, just feels like it needs an update to aid stability and sd card support would be welcome. No trickle charging via usb, not that this matters as it only takes 3 hours to charge and the battery life is excellent. We need more apps...
Overall, would I consider this in preference to a netbook? Yes! as you can run this tablet completely independent of a computer. In fact I haven't used mine for days... the wife is loving it!
4 Stars only because honeycomb update required. PS sorry for any typos this was typed entirely on the Xoom.
