With the announcement of the Motorola Android Tablet hoping coming next week at CES, it's time for a new section dedicated to the Motorola Xoom!


Anyone thinking about making this tablet their next purchase?

Count me in. Although I'll probably wait to hear of any bugs. Can't wait to see it rooted and ROM'd.

Can't wait to get one!!!

I had an Ipad and really liked it, then I got a Droid X and focused most of my attention on it. I finally gave the Ipad to my daughter permanently. But now I kind of miss that form factor. The Ipad had a lot of good stuff, but it also had a bunch of limitations. I really like the Android OS. I have a bunch of widgets I use and a lot of other good stuff. The Xoom should be a wonderful product. I am particularly interested in the video calling. Skype just came out with a mobile video app for the Iphone and they have hinted that the Android version should not be far behind. I am impressed with Motorola. Their stuff works. I particularly liked when they were quick to update their Droid X when a few glitches appeared. Apple is very slow to update anything. No word on whether the battery in the Xoom will be user replaceable. It is kind of dumb to have to return the Ipad to Apple, then have them send you another one for $99, just to get the battery replaced. Hope Motorola addresses this.

PS. Thanks to DAN for creating this forum!!!!!

Remember when an Iphone prototype was found in a bar?

I had a little fun and dropped this onto another forum, just for grins and to see if anyone got it!!

" Motorola Tablet accidentally left in bar"


It was found on the bar, right in front of an Engadget photographer and an Ifixit tear down guy!!! Unbelievable. We'll have all the details soon!!!!

This is definitely on my "I WANT LIST". Hope it will be under $500. Anything over that would be hard to justify.

If we are making guesses on pricing I am gonna guess 700. And I will not buy it unless it is under 400...i'll just go buy an archos.

Wi Fi or not??

The specs certainly seem to indicate that the Xoom will connect with either 3G or Wifi. I certainly hope it acts like the Ipad which defaults to Wifi when it senses a connection and when it doesn't, it goes to 3G, just like the Droid also. If there is not WiFi, there is no sale for me.

I hope the price isn't to bad. $500 would be acceptable. This thing Looks Sweet.
This is a Vanilla Android device Isn't it?

Wi Fi update

Motorola has responded to me in an email that the Xoom will be capable of internet connection using wifi.

The only type of tablet I want is a wifi only tablet. Who wants to pay an extra data fee on top of a phone data fee

Why it was a question

Sonjay Jha did not mention wifi at all in his Xoom presentation and the Galaxy tab was launched without wifi on Verizon. This is why the question was asked.

It is really amazing and outstanding.

Especially with so many of the newly announced devices having (or likely to have) 'hot spot' capabilities. I would venture to say that 99.9% of the time I would 'use' a tablet I would be where I know I have wi-fi (home, work ect.). Worse case most of these have usb ports so I could just tether (not that I advocate that:wink:)
