Motorola Xoom gets its First Price Tag

Motorola Xoom, the tablet viewed as promising by many in the just concluded CES2011, has got its first price tag (speculative).According to a Android Community story, UK site Handtec has the tablet available for pre-order -- but it is still in two minds on the price it should sell Xoom. That report shows the price as £660 (USD 1025), but it's now zoomed up to £720 (USD 1120).

The site reveals that the tablet is "due in soon".

Specs: With a 10.1-inch touchscreen, Xoom is one of the first to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

Honeycomb is fronted by a new interface that's more suited to a tablet's large screen than previous Androids, which were designed for small-screened smart phones. Notable features include drag and drop app groups. Apps, ebooks, YouTube videos and other bits of media are displayed in a nifty carousel that looks like it's rotating in 3D. The redesigned browser boasts tabbed browsing and Flash video support.

Xoom has a dual-core processor, 3G, 802.11n Wi-Fi, two USB ports, an SD card, HDMI and 32GB of storage. It has a 2-megapixel camera for video calling and 5-megapixel camera for taking pictures and shooting video, with two LED photo lights. --------
