One of the most exciting devices to come out of CES this year is the Motorola Xoom (and the Droid Bionic). This device seems to be at final hardware revision levels and is already running Android Honeycomb (Android 3.0) which puts it quite a bit further along the development cycle then any other Android Tablet we've seen at this point. The specs for the device are quite impressive:

- Large 10.1" Display with 1280x800 Resolution
- 1080p HDMI Output

The expected release date according to Sanjay Jha is late February. The timeline for this hardware and this software is quite ambitious and we hope that Motorola, Verizon and Google can work together to meet it.
About the only thing we can't tell you about the device is the expected pricing. No word on that just yet but we will keep digging.
