Motorola Xoom review

 

Motorola Xoom Review: The latest tablet computer to hit the market, is fast and well built, but a little bit of a bugger to play with and way too overpriced

Blazing fast ; PC-like functionality ; Sturdy build, good battery

Software needs improvement ; Just a handful of tablet apps ; Poor media performance

Motorola Xoom (32GB, wi-fi)

 

A worthy adversary to the iPad, if something of a work in progress: it should only get better

Interface looks great; OS is fast; customisable home screen; music sounds good; 720p looks great

Some motion issues with browsing and video; needs more apps; no iTunes-equivalent

Motorola Xoom

 

The Motorola Xoom is the first tablet to touchdown with Android 3.0, Honeycomb , the Google operating system designed for tablet devices. It's more than just the first tablet to arrive with a new version of Android - it's the device that Google...

Android 3.0, build quality good, acceptable camera performance, the novelty of being the first Honeycomb tablet

Honeycomb doesn't feel quite ready, microSD card not supported, Motorola don't bring anything extra from a software point of view

Scoring the Motorola Xoom is something of a challenge as at the moment it isn’t delivering the experience it could, that much clear. But it has potential oozing from every pixel. Taking into account that there is some tweaking to be done on the...

The first Android Honeycomb has created a buzz, but can the Xoom sting Apple where it hurts?

Brilliant, beautiful and buggy, this giant leap into the future of tablets is everything the iPad isn't. And that's mostly a good thing

Until now, Android tablets have shipped with various versions of the OS, all of which have been designed to power mobile phones. The Xoom is the first to run Android 3.0, nicknamed Honeycomb, which is

Motorola Xoom review

 

The first Android 3.0 tablet arrives to challenge the iPad 2

Android 3.0 ; 1080p video playback ; Dual-core CPU ; Decent camera ; Excellent features ; Excellent performance

Few tablet apps yet ; Fiddly to hold ; Expansion slot has issues ; No Flash support - yet ; It's expensive

The Motorola Xoom is the first Android 3.0 tablet to hit the market. That makes it the first Android tablet to ship with an OS that's designed especially for big screens, and that's why it's so exciting.

Motorola Xoom 4G LTE (Verizon Wireless) review

 

The Motorola Xoom tablet is easily the best competition Apple's iPad has ever seen. Sporting a 10.1-inch screen, front and rear cameras, HDMI output, a dual-core processor, and Google's tablet-optimized version of Android, the Xoom is entering the...

With Google's next generation of Android, Motorola's knack for great hardware, and Verizon's promise of 4G network compatibility, the Xoom tablet technically offers a more powerful, more capable alternative to Apple's iPad.

It's expensive, slightly heftier than the iPad, and novice users may balk at Android 3.0's read-the-manual attitude. Adobe Flash not yet supported.

The Xoom's spec sheet is enough to make any tablet tremble, but the price is high and Google still has some work to do before its tablet software experience is as fleshed out and intuitive as Apple's.

Motorola Xoom review

 

Android 3.0 makes Google-based tablets much easier to use, but the Xoom isn't quite as smooth as the Apple iPad 2.

The Motorola Xoom finally arrives in the UK under a burden of expectation. First of all it's the first tablet to hit the shelves that's running on Android 3.0 Honeycomb – aka the first edition of Android…
