Motorola’s Xoom - Motorola’s Xoom crashed onto the New Zealand pill scene in July, narrowly missing our comprehensive pill roundup in June.

The Xoom was Google's reference device when planning Honeycomb, the tablet-optimised Android three.0 operating system. That’s the Xoom’s main claim to fame: it's, quite literally, the archetypal Honeycomb pill device.

Honeycomb offers variety of enhancements over Android tablets that run smartphone-optimised Android two.x. the foremost obvious of those could be a major user interface redesign to require advantage of the larger screens found on tablets as against smartphones.

Customising your home screens goes from a clunky, drawn-out expertise to one thing as straightforward as choosing new furniture within the Sims and dropping it into place. Settings are easier to navigate, and also the overall feeling of operating with an outsized smartphone is greatly diminished.

With its ten.1-inch, 1280 x 800 pixel show, the Xoom is capable of showing 720p HD video at its native resolution (1280 x 720 pixels); the iPad two downscales video to suit its smaller 1024 x 768 pixel show. The Xoom may also play 1080p Full HD video, downscaled to 720p on the fly. higher still, it will it with nice image and sound quality, while not a touch of lag.

The included YouTube app is good, permitting you to browse smoothly for your next video whereas taking part in back HD content, because of an intuitive bit interface.

I’m chalking the video performance up to the Xoom’s dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra two processor, and 1GB of DDR2 RAM. There’s up to 32GB of on-board storage, with “SD card support when software update” (I didn’t check the microSD card slot myself, however it’s visible beside the SIM card slot).

Motorola conjointly claims net browsing performance “twice as quick because the leading competitor on the market today” – I’m not attending to attempt to build performance comparisons, as a result of it’s simply too subjective while not a massively complicated check setup. However, net browsing was positively fast – each via Telecom’s XT network and Wi-Fi connections. Pages load promptly and – if you put in Adobe’s latest Flash Player – the Xoom’s high-powered CPU happily plays Flash games and videos. several lower-priced Android devices I’ve tested have Flash support, however lack the ability to truly run complicated Flash applications.

Motorola claims up to ten hours of continuous video playback on one battery charge, or 2-3 days of standard use. Charge time is simply three.5 hours, that means you pay little time tethered to the wall. high up the battery nightly for best results.

An optional ‘Portfolio Case’ acts as a screen protector and moveable stand. I didn’t check one, however it's similar to the Apple iPad 2’s ‘Smart Cover’. One-upping Apple, the case has multiple ‘stops’ that allow you select an angle appropriate to your operating conditions.

Downsides? It's offputting that the Xoom has no host USB port and HDMI output. Why have a sexy, powerful pill bring to an end from the skin world by a scarcity of wired connectivity? Another less crucial flaw is that the sleek backplate makes the Xoom slide to a small degree too simply from your hands – simply solved with a case. I never dropped it, however a rubberised back would are higher.

Sold solely through Telecom, the Xoom’s shelf worth is $1,149: deliberately a dead ringer for the equivalent 32GB, 3G-enabled Apple iPad. each have good hardware, and also the size and weight variations are negligible. The Xoom features a higher-resolution screen, though maybe virtually as vibrant because the iPad’s. Really, it comes right down to Android or iOS. If you’ve got your heart set on an Android pill (or wish Flash compatibility), the Xoom could be a high contender.
