The Motorola Xoom was definitely the best tablet announced during the CES 2011. The Xoom is expected to hit the stores sometime in May as a 3G+WiFi tablet, with an upgrade to 4G LTE sometime later in 2011 in the States. However, now it looks like Motorola will ship a Wi-Fi only version of the Xoom as well.
Motorola’s Latin America General Manager, Maurizio Angelone has told Infobae that Motorola will ship the WiFi only version of the Xoom a whole month before the 3G+WiFi version of the device hit the stores.
The Motorola Xoom features a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1280×800. The tablet is based on the Nvidia Tegra 2 platform which includes a dual-core Cortex A9 based 1 GHz processor. The back of the tablet sports a 5MP camera with dual-LED flash while there is a 2MP camera in the front for video calling. The Xoom runs on the tablet version of Android Honeycomb.
