The Motorola Xoom was the first Honeycomb tablet to be announced, but it has received some stiff competition from LG and Samsung since then. We already knew that the Motorola Xoom is coming to Best Buy in the US on February 24, and that it might cost as much as $799 unlocked.
At the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry, the Mobile World Congress, Motorola has now announced that people in Europe also will be able to enjoy its Xoom device.
Like several of its peers, the Motorola Xoom is a tablet powered by Android 3.0 and a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor. It features a 10.1-inch (25.65 cm) widescreen display with a 1280 x 800 resolution – lacking, or free from, 3D technology depending on how you look at it. The Xoom also has dual cameras: a 5MP shooter on the back, and a 2MP front-facing camera.
It will be hard to choose between all these promising tablets. I guess price, and reviews, will become the deciding factors when people get ready to start carrying one of these technological wonders. Both Wi-Fi and 3G models of the Motorola Xoom will be launched in Europe in Q2 2011.
