LAS VEGAS--Part of Verizon's keynote address this morning was devoted to one of the more talked-about devices to come out of this year's CES: the Motorola Xoom.

The much-anticipated Xoom is the first device to run on the tablet-optimized version of the Android operating system, called Honeycomb. During Verizon's talk, we got a look at the tablet and the software it runs on.
