The Motorola Xoom was a notorious flop thanks to a sky-high price tag, features that didn't work for months (the company didn'ts tart upgrading the tablet to its promised 4G capability until late this fall), and a buggy implementation of Honeycomb that was a direct result of Motorola pushing too hard for an early launch. Moto, defiant in the... Read more...
Asus and Nvidia have collectively taken the wraps off the next-generation version of Asus' well-received Transformer tablet line, and the new system aims to carve out a slice of the premium tablet market.

The Motorola Xoom was the first Honeycomb (Android 3.x) tablet, but it never really took off. To be truthful, although some reports are that Android tablets have broken the one-third mark in terms of tablet shipments (compared to the iPad 2), Android tablets still have a ways to go. The Motorola Xoom 2 might be a step in that direction. The... Read more...
Prior to its launch, Motorola's Xoom tablet was touted as the first of the iPad killers, with features and capabilities the iPad lacked as well as a brand-new version of Android codenamed Honeycomb.

Are tablets that are tied to cellular networks and service plans less appealing than Wi-Fi only versions? Some people seem to think so.

Nvidia's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has given his opinion on the Tegra 2 products currently for sale, and he's not particularly pleased. Glancing at the market, it's hard to blame him.

If you believed the pre-release hype, Motorola's Xoom was supposed to dash into the market and slay the iPad, ending Apple's tablet reign and ushering in a new era ruled by Google's Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) platform.

Much of that interest has focused on the tablet's... Read more...
