Featuring a dual-core 1GHz processor, the device will first launch in a 3G version with a 4G version coming later in the year. It’s worth noting that it was said the 3G version can be easily upgraded to 4G once it’s made available. The device will not only feature impressive specs, Android 3.0 Honeycomb has been completely redesigned for the larger screens of devices. Building upon Android it will feature both widgets and multitasking and everything we have come to expect from an Android OS. The Motorola XOOM offers HD multi-touch screen.

Its mobile hotspot capability provides an online connection for up to five other Wi-Fi-enabled devices. Definitely Motorola XOOM is a powerful addition to Verizon’s product lineup.
