So many tablets to choose from; how do you know which one makes the cut for your life? Here, five tablets for five different types of people — from media buffs to early adopters – to help you choose which model is right for you.
Running Android 3.0, the 10.1-inch tablet will be stocked with 32GB of on-board memory and come with all the bells and whistles of the 3G version (dual core 1Ghz processors, 1GB of RAM, etc.). Where can you get the new tablet? There are going to be plenty of retailers to choose from. Find out more after the break.
The Motorola Xoom is finally available to the masses tomorrow — although it looks like it'll have a short time in the spotlight before the iPad 2 competes for attention. In any case, the Xoom is not the only new Android-powered 10.1-inch tablet in town. Earlier this month, Samsung unveiled a larger version of its popular seven-inch Galaxy Tab, but the details of the upcoming release date as well as pricing have yet to be announced. So if you're not an Apple fan, should you shell out $800 for a 3G/4G Xoom now or wait for the forthcoming Galaxy Tab? Take this quiz to see if you know the major differences between the two tablets!Take the Quiz
Yesterday was a big day for Motorola — the company officially launched its Android Honeycomb-running tablet to the masses! Going for a cool $800, this tablet is an Oscar-worthy competitor to the iPad with its crisp 10-inch screen, awesome cameras and dual-core processors.
I didn't get one for myself (I'll admit it: I'm waiting to see what the iPad 2 is packing), but let's just say my eye has been wandering. What about you — did you get a Xoom for yourself yesterday?
We got a good look at the Motorola Xoom at CES and got an even better idea of what it's capable of at the recent Android Honeycomb event at Google HQ (check out some video of the Xoom in action on our Facebook page). One thing that has remained a mystery? The price.
I like what I've seen so far with the Xoom, but I hardly think that many will shell out $800 for a 3G model. Of course, I thought the same thing when the first iPad arrived, and people happily forked over similar amounts of cash for a 32 and 64GB 3G version. But does Android have the same buying power? You tell me — are you planning on picking up a Xoom tablet when it's released for sale?
The commercial parodies Apple's old 1984 spot, depicting a bunch of stark, expressionless drones tethered to their iOS devices while the Xoom user enjoys full color . . . and flowers.
The full spot won't air until Sunday, but you can check out a short teaser of the upcoming ad after the break.
