Motorola Xoom overclocked to 1.5 Ghz with benchmark results [Guide]

Zoom, Zoom, Xooooom. The Motorola Xoom is quick don't get me wrong, but it just got a lot faster with the overclocking results I have to show you guys today.

Once you root the possibilities open up for much more things, and uses. Today I will be posting a guide for easy root. Yes this is 1-Click-Root for the Motorola Xoom.

Our main dude in England has his hands on the Xperia PLAY, also known as the "Playstation Phone," and he's reviewing it fully for our sister site SlashGear. This device goes by model name R800x, runs a full Android 2.3 Gingerbread experience, and has a 4" capacitive multi-touch, 854 x 480 pixel FWVGA display on top of a fully functional Playstation control set.
