Motorola XOOM Tablet – A Review  #MotoCalyp

Motorola XOOM Tablet – A Review #MotoCalyp

Front View of XOOM Screen.

I present to you the Motorola XOOM! It is sleek and sexy at first glance. It is thin, light weight, and it is a powerful little machine. It is small enough to fit into my purse, which is awesome, so I would be able to take it anywhere with me. It has a dual core processor, 10.1 in. widescreen, and you can watch HD video content on it as well.

One thing I thought was very cool is that XOOM has a holographic user interface to make it clearer and sharper. It has the availability for you to get the newest functions and software.


This is what the back of it looks like.

There is even more to the XOOM for me to share with you (Let’s get technical):

  • The Max. Resolution is 1280 x 800
  • It features a WXGA, Widescreen, HD, LCD Display
  • It comes complete with an anti-glare coating and has Gorilla Glass!
  • It has a TFT-LCD Touch Screen
I love that it has the built- in Bluetooth and GPS! The speed of this little masterpiece is up to 1.0 Ghz. . I also love it’s cool 3D Graphics.
It has wireless technology as well, so it is Wi-Fi enabled, another feature that is great to me, because I hate having to carry around a bunch of wires. This makes it so nice, that I can use it anywhere in my home, and also in Wi-Fi restaurants and other public area’s.
Listen To This:
  • Headphone and Microphone Jack
  • Built in Speakers
It’s Battery Life is up to 10 hours, which is another feature I am impressed with and love. I travel some and I love not having to look for plugs in airports and on buses.
It’s operating system is the Android 3.1 platform.
It also has 32GB of Hard Drive Capacity.
I was able to research the XOOM online and in media print ads. I wasn’t able to go to a store to view it up close and feel it but that is definitely on my to do list, especially because I have read so many reviews online and even on some of my fellow Blogger’s blogs and feel so intrigued I just want the experience.
You can see my research I did online and in print ads in my Google + story HERE.
I love learning about new products especially in the tech department. There are so many choices and you really do have to do the research to figure out which Tablet is for you.
Another cool feature I found in my research is that you can control content with Kid Mode by Zoodles. Being a mother of 2 teen children and 2 younger children, this is important for me. I would want to definitely control what my kids can see and not. This was on the “Family Edition Tablet” which also features Android Honeycomb OS.
The Motorola XOOM is definitely in the running of a tablet I would get my kids.  I would first have to check out the durability of it.

The Motorola Xoom is a Clever Tablet and does A LOT. I love the features and Spec.’s it has. I cannot wait to go and try one at a store that carries them.

Do you have a Tablet? If so Which one? Share what your Tablet does with us. If you have a Xoom, please share your thoughts on it.

Get Xoom ‘in,

The Plus Size Mommy
