  1. i think this will probably be one of the most sought after tablets of the year. If it comes with all the accessories ready to go from the Get go – then you have one hell of a business utility tool. Good to see motorola taking advantage of android platform and really doing well.
    I Do hope they are able to price it at 500 – 600 stateside.

  2. Wait, what? Just saw this thing priced for 720 pounds, so this is a good 60 pounds of. Guess if we wait a little longer that it will drop to 599 pounds 😀

    I really hope that it will be around 650€, but I’m afraid that I will have to get something else than the Xoom 🙁

  3. Worth mentioning is also that the Xoom has a barometer inside, for weather forecast e.g. …
    This step well enable the next high-valued application, indoor navigation which needs a high performance pressure sensor for a precise floor detection.
    As far as I know Bosch builds such high precision pressure sensors…
