Verizon Wireless and Motorola have announced the new Motorola XOOM tablet, referred to by some as “the most potentially disruptive technology” of last year’s CES ’11 show.
Motorola XOOM tablet is the first device to run Google’s new Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system, and will be available for purchase from Verizon Wireless for $599.99 with a new two-year contract or $799.99 without.
Wireless 3G data service for the Motorola XOOM will begin at $20 monthly access for 1GB. The Motorola XOOM will be upgradeable to 4G LTE service at no additional charge sometime later this year.
The Motorola XOOM is built around a 1GHz dual-core processor and 10.1-inch widescreen HD display. The sleek, stylish design features a front-facing 2mp camera for video chats, as well as a rear-facing 5mp camera that captures video in 720p HD.
The Motorola XOOM tablet also features full support for tabbed browsing and Adobe Flash Player support.
