Enterprise Mobility: Motorola Xoom Tablet Demo Powered by Android 3.0 Seen at CES
Las Vegas-Verizon's keynote address for the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show Jan. 6 provided the playground for a sweet demonstration of Motorola's forthcoming Xoom tablet, the Android 3.0 device with a 10.1-inch screen and dual-core processor. The Xoom, which will launch on Verizon Wireless' network in February, will be 4G-ready when the carrier is ready to expand its 4G LTE coverage beyond its current 38 markets. Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg and Verizon President Lowell McAdam chatted a lot about 4G and its capability to bring data, apps and content to consumers across the country in the next few years. But the Xoom stole the show. Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha whipped his out and invited Google Android product manager Mike Cleron up for a fine demo of the Xoom's 3D capabilities. The audience was wowed by the tablet's 3D capabilities for Google eBooks, photos and Google Maps. The device also offers facile widget customization. Check out those apps, along with Gmail, YouTube and other tools in this eWEEK presentation.
