Motorola has announced that the Honeycomb based tablet, the Motorola Xoom, is headed north to Canada this April. Unfortunately, Motorola is currently only making the Wi-Fi version available to Canadians. Although, the press release does state 3G is coming mid-year. So for those of you waiting for a 3G Xoom, hang tight! The Xoom hitting Canada in April is the same exact one we've come to know and love here in the US -- nothing new. Press release after the break, folks.
Motorola Mobility to Bring MOTOROLA XOOM(TM) Wi-Fi to Canada
Industry-leading tablet will be available in Canada beginning April 2011
TORONTO, March 21 /CNW/ - Motorola Mobility Canada today announced the MOTOROLA XOOM™ Wi-Fi will be available in Canada this April. MOTOROLA XOOM was called "the most potentially disruptive technology" by CNET at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show, and delivers a new type of mobile computing experience on a 10.1" HD display - higher resolution and more screen size in a smaller package than the leading competitor - with Android 3.0 (Honeycomb).
MOTOROLA XOOM showcases the innovations of the Honeycomb user experience - including widgets, true multi-tasking, browsing, notifications and customization - on a 10.1-inch widescreen HD display, enabling video content that's richer and clearer than ever before. With a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM, MOTOROLA XOOM delivers exceptionally fast web-browsing performance. The latest Google™ Mobile services include Google Maps™ 5.0 with 3D interaction, and access over 150,000 apps from Android Market™. MOTOROLA XOOM also features full support for features such as tabbed browsing, bookmark syncing and Adobe® Flash® Player1 to deliver a rich and powerful web browsing experience.
"MOTOROLA XOOM brings PC-like power to a tablet, providing consumers with an easy-to-use, lightning fast experience designed with fun and productivity in mind, and we're thrilled to bring it to Canadians," said Jeff Miller, corporate vice president, Motorola Mobility.
With 1280x800 resolution to support HD video and with HDMI out; a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera for HD video capture and 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chats; and a built-in gyroscope, barometer, e-compass, accelerometer and adaptive lighting, MOTOROLA XOOM is leading the tablet revolution. MOTOROLA XOOM supports up to 10 hours of video playback and charges in nearly half the time of competitive tablets on the market.
Motorola Smart Accessories
MOTOROLA XOOM features an ecosystem of intelligent accessories to enhance the tablet experience:
- A Standard Dock for watching video content or listening to music through external speakers as the device charges
- A Speaker HD Dock for sending HD content directly to a TV or clearly listening to music through two built-in speakers - eliminating the need to attach external speakers
