Just as we all thought, CES was all about tablet computing. Many competitors announced their tablets and we will faced with many options for our tablet needs in 2011. However, as we all knew, the key player was the Motorola XOOM. The Honeycomb-based tablet is not only powerful hardware-wise, its Honeycomb software ran flawlessly on top of its hardware.
The actual device was named CES 2011 Best in Show as opposed to Honeycomb, which was expected by many. The XOOM will be the number one competitor for the iPad and upcoming iPad 2 as the tablet market truly starts to heat up in the 2011 calendar year.
For those unaware, the device sports a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, HDMI-out, front- and back-facing cameras, and a 10-inch display all while being connected with Verizon’s blazing fast 4G LTE network.
Now, from what we’ve seen the device looks extremely impressive. From the live demo, seen below, it was running Honeycomb impressively smoothly. We can only hope that once we actually get our hands on the device, we will still be impressed.
