There’s been a ton of buzz around CES over Motorola’s newly-announced Xoom tablet, running Honeycomb and coming to Verizon’s network. We stopped by the Motorola booth, and were able to get a brief walk-through of Motorola’s new baby, and we must say, it looks incredible. The Xoom includes:

  • Nvidia Tegra2 1GHz dual core processor
  • 1GB DDR2 RAM
  • 10.1inch capacitive gorilla glass touch screen display
  • 1280 x 800 resolution
  • 802.11n WiFi
  • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
  • 5 mega pixel camera with limited auto focus
  • 32GB storage capacity
  • 720p Video Recording
  • Adobe 10.1 flash
  • HDMI port connectivity

We’ve got a video rundown and full photo gallery of this new device, and we want to know your thoughts on the Xoom. So, be sure to hit the break to check out the video and photo gallery, and leave your thoughts in the comments. Also, be sure to check out the real time demo of Honeycomb on the Xoom tablet that we snatched from Verizon’s keynote, as well as the video of the Xoom from the Verizon booth.

    I’d like to see a real hands on where someone randomly goes through the ui instead of these marketing videos. Don’t think I’ve seen this tablet do anything besides play videos. Maybe it is a brilliant way of avoiding embarrassing errors and crashes. Maybe I’m just being impatient.

    Maybe so, but it still crashed during an engadget video…rebooted and everything.
