Motorola Android Tablets, Coming Soon?
The reign of the iPad may end when Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets are launched. And it seems that Motorola is ready to take the lead with its rumored XOOM.
Google’s Android operating system seems to become the standard platform for smartphones, the same way Windows is for PC. The battle between Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS is akin to Windows vs MacOS. The only difference is that the Android OS is a free and open source software, while Windows is proprietary. Everyday, about 160,000 Android-based units are sold and most of them are mobile phones. Android 2.3 or Gingerbread is the latest version of the Google operating system. After Gingerbread, the next big thing would be the rumored Android 3.0 or Honeycomb.
If the buzz roaming around the tech-sphere are to be believed, the upcoming Android 3.0 is designed for computer tablets. And speaking of computer tablets, the Motorola is slated to launch an Android 3.0-based pad early next year. Too early that more rumors are emerging, saying that it will be present on CES 2011. The question is: What’s so yummy about the rumored Motorola Tablet?
The Motorola Tablet, dubbed as XOOM, is designed to make home TV viewing experience better. Hence, it is expected that the rumored XOOM measures seven to ten inches. The Motorola Tablet will have a 1280 x 800 pixel display, a NVIDIA Tegra 2, and 1GHz Dual Core chip. The upcoming tablet will also support the latest Google Geo-platform and HTML 5-based Scalar Vector Graphics. Moreover, the Honeycomb-based XOOM will have a 512MB RAM, ARM processor and microSD expandable memory.
The upcoming Honeycomb tablet from Motorola seems enticing. But people can only have a taste of its sweetness when CES 2011 arrives. More Honeycomb update is sure to come, so don’t forget to check back at Gadg more often.
