The much-anticipated Motorola tablet is finally available in India. The device is based on Android 3.0 Honeycomb and the company has announced the WiFi-only and the WiFi+3G models in the Indian market.
The launch comes soon after the announcement of the HTC Flyer and as heard before the company brought the tablet to the market by the end of this month. The tablet is the first Android Honeycomb based device to be revealed to the world which is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and 1GB of RAM.
The company indeed took a long time o introduce the tablet in the Indian market, and along with the HTC Flyer it goes up against Apple’s iPad 2, RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook and the Acer ICONIA A500 which was announced recently.
In regards to the specifications the Motorola XOOM sports a 10.1-inch TFT display with 1080p HD playback, it has a 5 megapixel rear camera with 720p video recording capability and a secondary 2 megapixel front facing camera, It includes an HDMI port, Bluetooth connectivity, GPS and A-GPS. The device has 32GB of in-built storage expandable using a microSD card. It is expected to have a 10 hours battery life with 3G and about 9 hours with WiFi.
The WiFi-only version is priced at 32,990 INR while the WiFi+3G would be selling at 39,990 INR. We expect the street price to be slightly lesser than the official tags. While the pricing for the WiFi-only version is quite competitive, the price of the Wi-Fi+3G model seems abrupt and now it seems that the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 would lead to us to the final decisions on the best Android tablet available in India.
