Video: Hands-on with the Motorola XOOM Tablet

We finally conquered our spotty wi-fi problems and uploaded our Motorola XOOM hands-on video from last night.  Like we mentioned earlier, no one is allowed to touch these devices and according to Moto reps, Honeycomb isn’t polished enough for prime time.  This guy was kind enough to walk through a series of Honeycomb videos though and give us a nice look at the entire 10 inches of glory.  Enjoy.

And here is the Verizon landing page for the XOOM.

    They won’t sell. Motorola has lost their collective mind and decided to sell this thing for $1000. Not going to happen. A price like that will create a niche market and piss-poor sales. $599 would certainly make it an attractive option.

    • Mr. Steve

      Where did you see that they were selling this for $1000? A price hasn’t been even announced yet moron.

    Why is Merlin presenting.

  • Jawshua

    Yeah I’ll just call it the Motorola “BADASS” instead of the XOOM.

  • Anonymous

    I finally watched the video, and damn, Google seriously had Moto on lock down. They made it so the Moto reps wouldn’t have to go through any menus, settings, or anything to show the Xoom off. This just makes me even more certain that Google is planning their own big unveiling of Honeycomb, and Moto’s job was only to show off the hardware.

    The big question is will it have some lame motoblur.

  • Eric

    This thing will not be ready by Feb or even March. Mark my words.

      Words marked, and I will come back here and post a reply from my Xoom in late-February.

      • Eric

        and i will come back and tell you i told you so.

        • Anonymous

          Well, I’d love to know your justification for thinking it won’t be ready. Most reports say the hardware looks and feels final, not to mention it’s already Verizon branded. Hell we saw leaked shots of a Verizon branded Xoom almost a month ago. The only thing left to do is Honeycomb, and that’s going to be unveiled by Google at Mobile World Congress in 5 weeks. Obviously Moto wouldn’t let people handle the Xoom at CES because it was an early build of Honeycomb, not to mention the fact that Google certainly wasn’t going to let Moto unveil Honeycomb before they did.

  • Gil

    Wow. This guy is controlling the tablet with his mind! I didn’t know it came with mind reading hardware.

  • Anonymous

    What about the apps? How will they work? I’m looking to pick this up in February, and wanna know all the details. :)

    • Anonymous

      Google will likely leave that up to devs. Some ppl will be partnered to get early access to make good tablet versions, like facebook and twitter. though facebook still doesn’t have an ipad app, so who knows…

      also, all android apps will surely work with these. plus, since it isn’t a separate os flavor for tablets, but just the next version of android, apps will just run bigger and not in the horrendous pixelated emulator version that ipad has.

    • Anonymous

      I thought the dev side of the market had some changes a month or so ago, that allowed dev to submit higher resolutions, obviously geared toward tablets. So most standard apps should work fine, but Inquizitor is right that big devs (likely Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, EA, and maybe even Rovio) are probably given more early information than the guy planning an Easter live wallpaper.

    Video is badly encoded – the video is half speed while the audio is full speed. Kinda unwatchable…

    Kellex, this thing is awesome, it seriously is awesome But, I need you to ask or find the answer to this one question: is there going to be a “Wi-Fi only” tablet. Because I would LOVE to have one of these things to myself, considering my birthday is coming up on the 14th. I know the release date isn’t coming up that soon and or that quickly, but believe me: I’m prepared to wait! Haha! Anyway, would love to get that from the wife. But I’d rather not get a 3G/4G version of it for pricing reasons as you can assume.

    An answer to that question would be much appreciated. Thank you! (Happy New Year!)

      Biggest disappointment of all of these tablets is that they are tied to carriers with 2 year contracts. Lame. Other lame thing is that Motorola hyped the hell out of this thing and all they have to show is a concept video??? The press should be calling them out on this. You don’t compare a product to the 10 commandments and then show a video.

      I just purchased a Nook color a few weeks ago. It’s cheap, not tied to any contract, and quite functional especially after root.

      • DBK

        “You don’t compare a product to the 10 commandments and then show a video.” I lol’d!

        Agreed. I’m either getting the NookColor and root it, or the Archos 70 IF they don’t release a wifi only version of the XOOM. Don’t need another data plan.

        Keep in mind that Verizon is the only carrier that offers the Galaxy Tab with no contract requirement whatsoever. Also, their off-contract price is $100 less than the off-contract price for the Tab on any other carrier. Food for thought.

        • DBK

          Even with the cheaper off-contract price, it’s still more expensive than it should be.

          • Anonymous

            Totally agree. In fact, i’ll go as far as to say that it should have never been created in the first place. Seriously, Samsung totally jumped the gun. They should have just waited for honeycomb in the first place.

    The audio died at the second half of the video.

    Anyway, two very simple aesthetic changes I hope come – the seeking/progress bar within video is no longer that yellow bar with a block seeker, and on the homescreen (with the default launcher, obviously), no more block of yellow behind an app you click. Two very little things that hardly matter at all, just two things that stuck out in my mind.
