Motorola’s newest invention, The Motorola Xoom tablet may be available in the UK soon with a price tag of nearly £720.
Powered by ‘Honeycomb’ software from Google, Motorola’s Xoom tablet, received the best gadget award at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
“We took big risks and they paid off,” said Motorola Mobility chief software engineer Seang Chau. “We didn’t know if people would get it; but obviously they got it.”
The Xoom will be available in the first quarter of the year, Jha said.
It boasts a 10.1-inch screen which is roughly the same size as Apple’s iPad.
Xoom will be a fierce competitor in the marketplace because Google built Honeycomb software specifically to power tablet computers, according to Jha.
“This is really the next generation of tablets,” Motorola Mobility device team head Alain Mutricy said as he held a Xoom in one hand at the awards ceremony.
“Our partnership with Google has been very intense and has enabled some great technology.”
