The Essential Motorola XOOM Review [VIDEO]

I review the Motorola XOOM that I received for review.  I’m bringing it along the BlogHer conference happening in San Diego this weekend!

I cover the hardware specs and features of the Motorola XOOM. Pretty amazing tablet overall and I cover the hdmi option, the dual cameras, usb host option to transfer files and my initial thoughts on the tablet.

Motorola XOOM Tablet, MZ604

  • 10.1 tablet
  • Honeycomb 3.01 installed, upgraded to 3.2
  • Dual core 1GHZ processors
  • 32GB storage with micro SD card slot (supports up to 32GB)
  • Dual cameras, 5 megapixel (back), 2 megapixel (front)
  • Video recording on back facing camera is 720p
  • USB host adapter for transferring files, music, movies
  • GPS for navigation
  • GeForce video card
  • HDMI port (mini HDMI) for video/audio output
I’m going to use this tablet for productivity and entertainment so I’ve installed widgets to display my calendar, Skype,  social media apps, Netflix and more!  I talk about transferring music over to this Android tablet using DoubleTwist and how I’ve signed up for Google Music beta.

Disclaimer: Although my reviews are my own, Motorola sent me this device to review and I was compensated for my time.
