Today Motorola and Verizon Wireless officially unveiled the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb powered tablet computer, the Motorola XOOM. The XOOM features a 10.1 inch display with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and supports 3G and Wi-Fi data connections from the start, and will support Verizon's 4G LTE based network after an update that is expected in the second quarter of this year.

The XOOM features a dual-core 1GHz processor for up to 2GHz of processing power and is powerful enough to play 1080p HD video content on the built-in display or on an external TV using the built-in HDMI support. The XOOM's web browser supports Adobe Flash for a fully featured web browsing experiences, and photographers and chatty folk alike will approve of the XOOM's dual cameras. The main 5 megapixel camera can be used for stills and 720p HD video recording, and the forward facing 2 megapixel camera is perfect for video chats.

In addition to the new features offered by Android 3.0, such as split-screen apps, a new virtual keyboard, and Google Talk video chatting, the Motorola XOOM also can act as a mobile hotspot on Verizon's network, allowing other Wi-Fi devices to make use of the XOOM's connectivity.

The Motorola XOOM is expected to be available for purchase later in the first quarter of 2011.
