Review: Motorola XOOM Android Tablet (WiFi-Only)


Motorola Xoom Review

Well, it’s finally finished. Here’s the link to the full Motorola Xoom review.

The review includes over 30 pictures and screenshots, a 25 minute video review, and covers all the main features of the Honeycomb-equipped Android tablet, with a special focus on electronic reading.

Also, I’ll be posting a direct comparison between the Xoom and iPad 2 in the coming days to see how they stack up in a head-to-head competition, as well as reviews for individual reading apps.

Feel free to ask any questions about the Motorola Xoom in the comments section below. I’ll do my best to answer them.

  1. I don’t recall whether you have tested this on another machine, but I assume can’t you start a flash video on a web page and switch over to an ebook and continue to hear the video?

    A head to head between the Xoom and Asus Transformer when it gets released should be interesting. I don’t think the initial model release of the transformer will have 3G capabilities although I could be wrong. At $399, I suspect the transformer will do quite well.

    As for me, if the Viewsonic 3G drops anymore, I might have to get that one.

    • The Android browser automatically pauses video when switching tabs or apps. But since that TV shows stream app can play in the background while switching apps, I don’t know, perhaps there’s a browser of video app that has that capability too.

      As for the Asus Transformer, I’ll definitely be doing a review for it, plus a Transformer vs Xoom review.

  2. Great review on the Xoom, very thorough! Keep up the good work 🙂

  3. Hi, What are the reviews on this, coby kyros 8″ touchscreen,2.3android, built in camera, Mfg part#:MID8025-4G. Thanks, Susi

    • I haven’t reviewed any of the Coby Kyros tablets. There’s way too many to keep up with so I stick with the big guns and ones with an ereading bent.

  4. Maybe you need a “tips” box? Maybe this is just news to me, but this is now shipping:
