Canonical recently announced Ubuntu for Tablets which will initially run on ARM chips. Ubuntu Tablets will support screen sizes from 6 to 20 inches with resolutions from 100 to 450 pixels per inch. The video below shows you what Ubuntu can offer from smart phones, tablets to full PC.
The Motorola Xoom was voted at CES 2011 as Best Of Show. Motorola Xoom is a tablet based on Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system. It comes with a dual core processor, 4G compatible hardware, a HDMI output , front and back facing cameras, and a 10 inch screen. It also comes with camcorder software and Adobe Flash Player. Expect the Motorola Xoom to be standard for Android tablets going forward. Others hardware manufacturers will follow using Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The Xoom is set to compete with Apple’s iPad. The release date is set for April 2011.
The front-facing camera is 2 mega pixel, while the back-facing camera is 5 mega pixel. It also supports 1080p HD. Motorola plans to release 3G version first. Users will be able to upgrade to 4G later in the year. I assume there will be a Wi-Fi model only, similar to Apple’s iPad. Motorola plans to make 1 million units initially. Is the Xoom hotter than the iPad? We will see in the spring. Finally, here’s the official video of the Motorola Xoom. Let me know what you think.
