Two of the hottest mobile products right now are the Atrix phone and the Xoom tablet, both from Motorola.
Answering to complaints that the $800 Xoom is too expensive, Motorola has just announced a cheaper version set to debut at all the major big box stores.
It appears Microsoft is pulling the plug on Zune hardware. I actually had a lot of hope for the media player when it was first announced in 2006.
The #1 electronics retailer in America has come up with a plan to provide tablets to some of its sales people on the retail floor, but it won't say what tablet it has in mind.
A funny thing happens when there's a bigger and better Android tablet on the market - the one that previously had a stranglehold on the entire industry gets dropped radically in price.
Aside from the fact that the Xoom is the first device to run Android 3.0, the big deal with the Motorola tablet is that even though it only ships with 3G connectivity, it will be "upgradeable" to 4G. But if you look at the details, it's not going to be an easy process.
Over the last few weeks, there's been a lot of discussion over Motorola's new Android 3.0-based tablet, the Xoom. But now a company that actually has that same name is suing.
If you're going to get a Motorola Xoom, the most expensive multimedia tablet to date, you may as well go all the way. The company has unveiled a version of the device in pure gold, but you can't buy it, you have to win it.
Yes, Motorola's Xoom may be priced at a hefty $600 with a contract, and an outrageous $800 without. Still, the Android Honeycomb-powered tablet offers some sweet specs, and yes, it is now confirmed - an "unlockable/relockable bootloader."
Motorola’s Xoom tablet - which is priced at $600 with a two-year contract - will be available via the Verizon network on February 24. As expected, the tablet can also be purchased without an agreement for $800.
So let me understand this. Motorola wants to take on Apple’s wildly popular iPad with an overpriced $800 tablet that won’t initially support Adobe Flash. Does Motorola think we are all suckers?
Android is undoubtedly one of the coolest mobile operating systems coded in recent years. But it isn't iOS, and the Xoom, for all its tricked-out and superior specs, isn't an iPad. Simply put, the Android-powered Xoom lacks the comforts of Apple's "walled garden" ecosystem.
Unless someone went to the trouble of creating and leaking a fake Best Buy ad, it looks like Motorola's Xoom tablet will be available in the big box store on February 24 for $800.
Sources say that Google is planning to officially lift the veil on Android version 3.0, otherwise known as Honeycomb, in just two days.
Motorola's anticipated Android-based Xoom tablet has been making a lot of headlines because it's the first to use Android 3.0 and is upgradeable to a 4G connection. But now it's making headlines for a less favorable reason.
We're seeing a bit of what's inside Research in Motion's Playbook playbook, as the company has ordered a million units to be produced from its overseas manufacturing partners.
Samsung has the Galaxy Tab, Motorola has the Xoom, Asus has a few on the way, and yet the company that says it can go all the way up to knocking on the iPad's door...is Sony?
Could it be true the a million Xoom units will ship when the Android tablet is released next month? Motorola must have a good feeling about the gadget because it's amping up production in a big way.
We all knew it was coming. Motorola has created the most prolific Android phones yet and it was only a matter of time before the company made official its new Android tablet product. It doesn't carry the instantly recognizable "Droid" name, but perhaps it won't need to.
