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.
The digital payments firm continues its acquisition push ahead of its split from eBay later this month.
The company has reportedly signed a confidential deal with Xoom Corp. that will lead to Motorola ceasing to use the "Xoom" brand for tablets.
Also on tap: a dirt-cheap 32GB flash drive, a Wi-Fi range extender, and a cool wall-plug surge protector with USB ports.
Known stateside as the Motorola Droid Xyboard, this feature-packed tablet is available in your choice of size: 8.2 or 10.1.
It's refurbished, but a comparable iPad would cost you $679. So, yeah, you could literally buy three of these for the same price.
The Xoom may be showing some signs of age, but it has every feature under the sun -- including a shiny new Android 4.0 update.
The Motorola Xyboard experience just got a whole lot better with an Android 3.2.2 update. Perhaps Motorola shouldn't have released the Xyboard at all prior to 3.2.2.
A German court has ruled that the Motorola Xoom tablet does not copy Apple's iPad.
It's sort of a hollow victory for Motorola, as the Xoom never really made an impact on the market.
