Sprint branded Motorola Xoom finds its way onto the internet

42

If you are a Sprint user that has been eying the Motorola Xoom, and anxiously awaiting its Wi-Fi model release so you don't have to jump ship, a glimmer of hope has come for you. Sprint Users forums member rofl, who is apparently a rather trusty leaker of these types of things, has outed the Motorola Xoom showing a pretty Sprint logo. While we still have no release date, or real information on this device, it is a good sign to see that it is wearing the branding of other carriers. [SprintUsers via BGR]

Toshiba tablet appears on Amazon

13

Toshiba's 10.1 inch tablet (see our hands-on from CES 2011) now has its own sign-up page on Amazon.com.  The Tegra 2 based tablet features "Adaptive Display Technology", which is video upscaling on the 1200x800 16:10 screen.  Combined with a full-sized SD card slot, full-sized USB port, HDMI port and mini-USB, this one looks to be a very nice piece of hardware.

There's no word on pricing or an availability date, but if you're interested you can sign up to be notified from Amazon when more information becomes available.  [AmazonThanks, Randy!

While the estimated delivery dates are showing 3/28, the day after it will be available in retail locations, the good thing is that you will be guaranteed a device, and won't even have to leave your home. So, if interested in doing it all online, and not worried about having to wait an extra day, be sure to check out the Staples site. [Staples] Thanks, Danny!

Costco taking pre-orders for XOOM Wi-Fi; $589.99 and you get a free case

23

While most retailers will have the Wi-Fi only Motorola XOOM ready to go on March 27, Costco is taking pre-orders now and giving and expected ship date of April 1. So what exactly is the incentive in ordering from them considering you'll be waiting a few extra days to get one? Well, Costco will only charge you $589.99 and toss in a free gel skin case to go along with it. If you're not an impatient person -- that's one hell of a deal. You can place your pre-orders at the Costco website. [Costco via BGR]

Motorola Xoom review

62

Big, black and powerful. That pretty much sums up the Motorola XOOM (henceforth to be referred to as the more eye-friendly Xoom), the opening salvo in what is about to be a deluge of tablets running Android 3.0 Honeycomb. And the Xoom not only ushers in a major change to the Android operating system, it also launches a new era in mobile hardware, faster and more powerful than ever.

But for all that, the usual questions remain. Does the Xoom match up with the competition? And does it justify the price? And is the darn thing just too big and too heavy? All that and another picture or two, after the break.

Motorola Xoom's HRI66 update raises quadrant benchmarks by 28 percent

9

Late last week we got word of an update for the Motorola Xoom rolling out, and while the main purpose that we saw for the update was the upcoming flash compatibility, the update appears to have done more then just this. Android Central forums member wnrussel3 noticed that after the update to HRI66, from the previous version of HRI39, Quadrant benchmarks on the device improved by 28 percent, jumping from 1775 to 2283. It's not necessarily indicative of an overall experience, but nobody wants lower benchmark scores.

Leaked docs show WiFi-only Xoom at $599, coming March 27

101

It looks like the Motorola Xoom is joining the HTC Thunderbolt in the "leaked docs from big box stores" department, as Droid Life got some goods from a Staples insider showing the long awaited WiFi-only model coming March 27, at a price point of $599.98.  That works out to the same price point as the 32 GB WiFi model of the iPad 2, and should quiet the folks crying for a carrier free, WiFi-only model (like yours truly). 

While we've learned that leaked sales ads and internal inventory screens don't guarantee anything, they are a good indicator that we're close.  This should certainly help boost sales, and more importantly, developers who were waiting for the WiFi-only model can get to cracking.  The inventory screen is after the break.  [Droid-Life via Android Central forums] Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10-inch gets a thorough hands-on in France

46


Youtube link for mobile viewing

When we first got a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10-inch at Mobile World Congress, it was your usual trade show free-for all. But the upcoming Honeycomb device (when's this thing gonna drop, anyway?) has shed its Samsung shackles and apparently paraded around the streets of Paris for the AndroidHD blog, which churned out 11 minutes of quality video in return. Nothing too new here, but you get another good look at the hardware, a good look at the software and some sample pics taken from the 8MP rear camera. [AndroidHD]

Motorola Xoom gets custom car dock [from the forums]

35

If you have thought about how awesome it would be to use your Motorola Xoom as an in car media player, or for navigation, you are not alone. Android Central forums member 3800scpowered took to creating a custom car dock for the Xoom for this very reason. With the use of some aluminum, and the standard desk dock for the device, a rather unique, yet professional looking car dock for the Xoom was created. It's wired for power from the car to keep it charged while on the go. Hit the source link for more pics and all the details. [Android Central Forums]
