 O Motorola Xoom é o primeiro tablet equipado com Android 3.0 - a nova plataforma do Google desenvolvida especialmente para tablets. Embora apresente um hardware poderoso, a falta de uma maior variedade de aplicativos disponíveis na Android Market pode limitar o uso do produto.

  • Tela Widescreen.
  • Câmera frontal e traseira.
  • Altofalantes estéreos.
  • Processador Dual-Core.
  • Suporte a Adobe Flash.
  • Peso.
  • Poucos Apps disponíveis.
O Xoom tem uma tela de 10,1 polegadas – contra 9,7 polegadas do iPad e 7 polegadas do Galaxy Tab --, processador de dois núcleos (cada um com 1 Ghz) e memória RAM de 1 GB, o que faz com que a capacidade dele se aproxime à de muitos computadores convencionais. O Xoom vem ainda com o sistema Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), específico para tablets. Outros ultraportáteis com Android rodam uma versão adaptada do sistema operacional para smartphone. Sua comercialização será parecida com a do iPad: uma versão apenas com acesso à internet via Wi-Fi e outra com a opção Wi-Fi e 3G.

Quanto aos recursos multimídia, ele vem com duas câmeras: uma de 2 megapixels e outra de 5 megapixels. A primeira pode ser utilizada como webcam para videoconferência e a outra para gravar vídeos de alta definição (720 p). Diferente do iPad, ele suporta a tecnologia para conteúdo multimídia Flash – segundo a empresa de Steve Jobs, esse tipo de recurso gasta muito bateria e foi abolido dos gadgets da companhia. O tablet também conta com um acelerômetro, que permite identificar a disposição do dispositivo -- o recurso também é muito utilizado em jogos.

Para usuários que gostam de rodar vídeos de dispositivos móveis na televisão, a Motorola inseriu uma saída HDMI – com ela é possível ver vídeos em FullHD que, eventualmente, estiverem no tablet. Há ainda uma porta micro-USB e uma entrada para fone de ouvido. named it the "Best of the CES" 2011.[8]



The Xoom supports up to 720p video playback.[9] It features a 2 MP front-facing camera for video chatting over Wi-Fi or cellular Internet and a rear-facing 5 MP camera that records 720p video. The Xoom has a 1280×800 widescreen, 10.1-inch display and 3D graphics acceleration, as well as HDMI-out. It features a variety of sensors, including agyroscope, magnetometer, accelerometer, and a barometer. The Xoom uses Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC.


The Motorola Xoom has support for the following video (H.263, H.264, MPEG4, VP8), and audio (AAC, AAC+, AMR NB, AMRWB, MP3, XMF) formats.[10]


Both the WiFi and Verizon branded Xoom runs Google's Android 3.1 Honeycomb, whose new features include a redesigned, tablet-optimized user interface, a 3D desktop purportedly taken from BumpTop (which Google acquired in April 2010), improved task-switching, a newly redesigned notification system, Google Maps 5 in 3D and browser enhancements including tabbed-browsing, form auto-fill and bookmark syncing.[11]
Other versions of the tablet, most notably the European 3G and Canadian Wifi variants have not yet received the Android 3.1 update and remain on 3.0.
On February 23 Motorola Mobility announced that the Motorola Xoom would break its policy of locking down its devices by providing the gadget with an "unlockable/relockablebootloader that will enable developers to access hardware for development."[12]


The Motorola Xoom supports docking stations for charging and as a stand for viewing video. It also features Bluetooth keyboard support.
Available accessories include: Motorola Xoom portfolio case, dock, HD stereo dock, wireless keyboard.

Features announced but not initially present

The initial release of the tablet operating system did not support Adobe Flash or the microSD. Adobe announced on 11 March that Flash would be available for Android 3.0 devices on 18 March and a predicted future software update will enable the microSD slot.[13] On 12th April it was reported[14] that the developers at the XDA-developers forum have made the microSD slot functional on the Xoom tablet even before the next update.[15] Motorola Xoom tablet did not support Flash on Day 1 of its release in US on February 22, 2011. Before release, no official statement has said whether the microSD slot will support SDHC or SDXC card families.

Super Bowl commercial

Motorola aired a television spot during Super Bowl XLV in 2011 that was designed as a satire of Apple's landmark Super Bowl ad "1984". Titled "Empower the People", it depicted a dystopia in which all of humanity wears white hoodies and are plugged into iPods, a jibe at how Apple products had achieved cult-like status and practically ubiquitous market penetration.[16]
The following week, a minor controversy erupted when Los Angeles filmmaker Mike Sarrow claimed that he had, in fact, originated the commercial's idea first. In 2009, he shot a short film portraying a dystopian world where everyone is plugged into iPods to the point that all human conversation has ceased. The controversy was reported on numerous tech news websites, including CNET and Engadget, though no concrete evidence of intellectual property was presented, merely some suspicious similarities, including a nearly identical ending shot. However, the filmmaker has chosen not to pursue Motorola legally, only using the similarity as publicity for his work.[17][18][19][20]


The device's hardware received praise from reviewers; Engadget, PC World and CNET all said that the Xoom's performance was as good as, or superior to, competing products.[21][22][23] The user experience with the installed software was mixed. Android 3.0 was praised for "com[ing] together in a far more cohesive manner than any previous iteration of the software,"[21] according to Engadget, and being "the most polished Google software effort to date,"[23] according to PC World. CNET said that in some areas the software seemed overly complex,[22] and Engadget said that "a lot of the new software feels like it isn't quite out of beta."[22] The device's pricing also attracted criticism; both Engadget and PC World cited the price as a drawback,[21][23] and CNET said that with the launch pricing, "the Xoom's appeal will be limited to early adopters and Android loyalists."[22]


Xoom was estimated by Deutsche Bank analysts to have sold about 100,000 units during the first 6 weeks of availability versus first-day sales of the iPad of 300,000 units.[24] On April 28, 2011, Motorola announced during Q1 2011 earnings conference calls that over 250,000 units of Xoom were shipped to retail channel during the quarter. The company did not reveal its estimate of number of units actually sold to consumers. [25]
