Motorola to bring out the XOOM - the first 4G tablet

Motorola seems to be betting on 4G, as the company has announced that it will launch a tablet that will not be on the 3G network, but also on Verizon’s 4G network – or LTE – as this year’s CES is being inundated with tablet after tablet.

Motorola’s tablet – the XOOM – will feature Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and will have a dual-core processor with each core running 1GHz, and has a 10.1-inch widescreen display. It will have HDMI output so you can display content in HD, and has two cameras: a two-megapixel front-facing camera and a five-megapixel rear-facing camera that can record 720p HD video.

The tablet will also have a built-in gyroscope, e-compass, barometer, accelerometer and adaptive lighting.

It will launch in Q1 of this year, initially as a 3G/Wi-Fi tablet with an upgrade to 4G LTE on Verizon later in Q2. A native 4G/Wi-Fi tablet will also be out in Q2. International availability and pricing for both domestic and international markets have not been released.
