Tech Industry: Motorola Xoom, Best of Show

2:08 /

Molly Wood takes a look at the Motorola Xoom, winner of the CES 2011 Best of Show Award.

-Hi everybody, I'm Molly Wood from cnet.com here at CES 2011 with a very special first look. This is our CES 2011 best of show winner, the Motorola Xoom tablet. So, I thought I would give it the full best of CES first look treatment. Now, there were a lot of tablets. By some reports, as many as 50 tablets announced here at CES and from some big names, LG, Toshiba, and of course, Motorola. So what makes this one so special? Well first of I have to say, it's partly the design. This is absolutely beautiful. It's sexy, it's lighter than the iPad, but it has a slightly bigger display, a 10.1-inch display, running at 1280 x 800 resolution, so really nice, high res, glossy, bright screen. Now, one of the things that make this tablet so appealing is that it's running Google's Honeycomb operating system. That's the version of android that is specifically optimized for tablets, and I have to say, we found it very user friendly, very tablet friendly, really a good touch screen interface that made this, frankly, just a joy to use. It's also running a Tegra 2 dual-core processor with 1GB RAM, so it's got some pretty serious horsepower under the hood here, plus there is plenty of onboard storage. It has 32GB of onboard storage with an SD card slot that is expandable to 32GB more. So you can get potentially 64GB of storage on here. Pretty much all the movies and music that you're ever going to want. Speaking of photos, this has another iPad killer feature, dual cameras. There is a 2-megapixel camera in the front, a 5-megapixel camera on the back. That's another thing that the iPad lacks, as you know, and of course, there is support for Flash 10.1. All in all, a very powerful, very attractive, comfortable little tablet. We are expecting to see this guy in the first quarter of 2011. There is no pricing information yet, but they are saying it'll be competitive. So, we are thinking that's code for $500 to $700? We'll see you when it finally comes out and there you have it, I'm Molly Wood from cnet.com with the first look at our best of CES show winner, the Motorola Xoom tablet.
