Motorola Android Tablet: Xoom Release Date Narrowed Down

By Tina Chubb - Jan 9, 2011

We first brought you news about the Motorola Xoom – the much-hyped tablet PC that will run on Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system – back in December last year, although we didn’t actually know the official name back then.

However, as previously mentioned by Peter Chubb, Motorola revealed both the tablet and its official name during this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. As mentioned over on the website, the Xoom is the first tablet PC to feature a dual-core processor.

The Motorola Xoom also comes with 1GB of internal memory, support for Adobe Flash Player, a 10.1-inch widescreen display, front and rear (5-megapixel) facing cameras, a HD camcorder, a front facing webcam and video playback in 720p HD.

Although we still don’t seem to know a specific release date for the Motorola Xoom, we do know that it’s been narrowed down to a specific month. According to Alex Wagner over at, a Wi-Fi only version of the Motorola Xoom is due for release sometime in April 2011.

This news has also been confirmed over on the website. However, it also mentions the Verizon Motorola Xoom launch date, which appears to be sometime in May. What do you think of the new tablet PC, and will you be purchasing one?
