The Motorola Xoom: Visual QuickStart Guide

Buy

Back in the early 1990s—1993, to be exact—Apple Computer launched a handheld computer product known as the Newton. Interestingly, the Newton was the first device to be called a personal digital assistant (PDA), a term that lives on today. Essentially, it was the first tablet computer. The one thing that most folks agreed on at the time was that tablet computers would never replace desktop computers and that their usefulness would never evolve beyond certain niches.

Boy, were they wrong! Last year, Apple came out with the iPad, and within a few short months, the utility and style of tablet computers were plain to see.

Now Motorola has jumped into the tabletcomputer pond with both feet. Its Xoom is a technological wonder that can stand toe Introduction to toe with—and indeed surpass—many of its competitors in both functionality and raw horsepower. Coupled with Android’s Honeycomb 3.0 operating system, the Motorola Xoom is a fantastic device that’s taking the world of tablet computing by storm.

Currently available in two models (3G/Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi only), the Xoom is capable of functioning as a stand-alone computer, albeit one with a few limitations. Probably the most glaring limitation is the lack of a physical keyboard, but of course the keyboard is onscreen. (It works wonderfully but lacks the tactile feedback that standard keyboards supply.) Otherwise, the Xoom has it all: color; sound; a large touch-sensitive screen; a snazzy operating system; and hundreds upon hundreds of very cool apps that make it sing, dance, game, and teach.
