Motorola XOOM – Do you like it?
The Motorola XOOM is said to be Android’s response to the iPad released by Apple. This tablet PC was the combined effort between Motorola and Google. With their combined efforts, this tablet PC has dealt some damage to the sales of Apple’s iPad. The only reason why this model isn’t the most popular tablet PC is probably due to its high cost. However, the high cost is worth it for a tablet PC of this calibre.The Motorola XOOM comes with 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2-based slate, 1GB of DDR2 RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
The processing power and memory of the XOOM far exceeds that of the iPad. Because of this, the XOOM is able to run faster than most tablet PCs. However, this is also probably the reason for the high cost. This product looks nice and sleek but also lacks originality. It looks like any other tablet PC. The product is also a little heavier than the usual tablet PC due to its hardware but isn’t too heavy that it becomes a nuisance. The XOOM also comes with an accelerometer that enables both portrait and landscape view.
On a personal note, I feel that the product was made for landscape mode more than portrait mode due to its camera position. More about the camera will be discussed later.In terms of display screen, the Motorola XOOM has the advantage. It is both bigger and clearer than other tablet PCs. One thing Motorola is famous for is their audio. Their audio systems have always been very good. The XOOM proves this point.
It is able to play very loud sounds and plays sounds very clearly. I am not disappointed by their audio system. Besides that, another I like about the XOOM is its battery life. Motorola claims it can last up to 10 hours but on my personal experience, it only last for around 8-9 hours which is more than enough for me. This is great as I don’t have to bring the charger everywhere I go. Earlier I mentioned something about a camera.
Some of you might be confused. Well, the Motorola XOOM actually comes with a 5 megapixel camera. How neat is that? With this, you can now take pictures using your tablet PC anywhere you go. It does almost everything a laptop can and can even do things a mobile phone can, except make calls. In conclusion, the Motorola XOOM is a great tablet PC to have. It’s a great contender for the iPad and other famous brands. This product really takes the tablet PCs to another level.
