Can Motorola Droid Xoom tablet give Apple iPad a run for its money

Motorola Droid Xoom tablet Price in India

Motorola Droid Xoom that recently had its world debut at the CES 2011 in Las Vegas is the talk to the town. Many wonder that whether Droid Xoom will give the mighty Apple iPad, a run for its money and if the Motorola tablet is the ideal contender of the iPad throne?


Well, it is too early to say anything, as we know that the tablet just got unveiled and to prove its mettle against the super powerful iPad, Xoom has miles to cover. But nevertheless the tablet did manage to gather a lot of stir as a strong iPad competitor and that is not a small thing in itself.


What makes Xoom a powerful tablet, so much so, that gadget analysts have started comparing it with the iPad? Remember the tablet got the best gadget award at the Consumer Electronic Show 2011 in Las Vegas. The CES this year was largely a feast of tablets with players such as Toshiba, RIM, Lenovo and Samsung displaying their products, but Xoom won everyone’s applause.


Xoom is the first exclusive product that comes with Google’s tablet specific Android version 3.0 also called the Honeycomb. It is powered by 1GHz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a 10.1 inch screen with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and 32GB of onboard storage.


The other specs that make this tablet attractive are its two cameras, one 5 MP camera at the rear for stills and 720p video capture and another 2 MP front-facing camera for video calls. The camera also allows 1080p video playback. The tablet will have Wi-Fi and 3G support when it will be launched but Motorola has also offered a 4G LTE upgrade with it that makes it one of the first 4G-compatible tablets to hit the market.


But as it is seen many product fail to live up to expectations after the CES gets over and same might just happen with Motorola tablet as well. But we believe that the tablet maker has huge plans for the first quarter of this year because according to the orders placed by Motorola for components and parts of the tablet.


The suppliers of such parts believe that Motorola is planning to produce some 7, 00,000 to 8, 00,000 for this quarter which is a huge number, but neither Motorola nor the official carrier of Xoom, Verizon Wireless confirmed any such figures. Anyways, we hope that the tablet does well here and iPad finally gets a true rival.
