Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) Installed on Motorola Xoom Tablet PC
CES 2011 was an event that had so many new Tablet PCs that it amazed everyone, according to statistics, more than 80 new Tablet Pcs were launched including Samsung Slide 7 Series and Gigabyte Tablet PC.
I was so fed seeking for Tablets, which made me decided to find the unexpected gadgets now and came to Motorola Xoom, another Tablet PC but with a difference.
Motorola Xoom Tablet PC runs on Android 3.0 and that is what attracted me to it like a magnet. Honeycomb which is the official name for Android 3.0 seemed quite fresh to me.
The widgets were well stacked; the device looked equally brilliant, there were 5 widgetized home screens with all the widgets capable of getting rearranged and adjusted.
Other than those, Motorola Xoom Tablet PC possessed the bottom icons which made navigation on Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) way easier.
The Technical Specifications of Motorola Xoom Tablet PC were not scribbled anywhere around it so I had nothing left but just to analyze the OS.
Detailed Analysis of Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb)
Motorola’s dedicated User-Interface is very good indeed, not as good as Dell Streak Stage UI but still it was better than what we see on every other Android Tablet PC these days.
The apps button at the top takes you to the multimedia applications and files stored on Motorola Xoom Tablet PC which makes browsing music, videos and similar stuff much simpler.
The browser is good, simple and yet quite engaging, since it runs on Android 3.0 you can install the Swype input application to type at high speeds. The RSS feeds explorer lets you subscribe to your favorite gadgets blogs etc. and stay updated all the time.
One more thing that impressed me was the eBook reading application on Motorola Xoom Tablet PC; the books are arranged by cover in the Android eBook Reader. If you want to buy books to read on this new Tablet PC, you can buy books from Google Books which is a very cool Book inventory from Google.
Android 3.0 is a great operating system from Tablet PC and big screen devices, though I am not sure but it may prove ideal for Smartphones as well.
As of now, we can’t say anything more about Motorola Xoom Tablet PC and Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) since they haven’t been released at CES 2011 in their unlocked, original state.
