Beginner’s Guide to the Motorola XOOM

Motorola has just released a series of videos to help owners of the XOOM get comfortable with their new device.  This is a great guide for beginners as it teaches you the basics of using the tablet, the keypad, setting up email, taking and editing pictures, and even creating Google Documents.  Each video is short and to the point, so as someone new to Honeycomb (Android 3.0), you should be able to learn a few things in very little time.  I’d also recommend that you check out our review of the XOOM, which includes a full 30-minute walk-through of Honeycomb.

    so im about to get a xoom, but i was wondering how the security look looks like, and if there is a pattern lock. Is it small like it is on the ipad?

      I’m sure it’s bigger than on the iPad. If there’s *anything* that Gingerbread has over iOS, it’s a proper UI for a tablet.
