Motorola Xoom

I'm a huge fan of Tablet PCs, but I've not been very excited about slates. The iPad in particular is a device that I am not a huge fan of, but I do recognize its usefulness. Lets start with a little history lesson.



A little more about the Xoom, but mostly PR and not much about how it actually works. Still a fairly awesome video. This product definitely looks exciting.



What I'm really excited about is Android 3.0 and this gives you a better idea of what all the fuss is about.



With my college career coming to an end, making the move from a pen enabled Tablet PC to a touch based Android slate may be a logical next step. While I'm excited about Android development for the phone, the real potential is in developing applications specifically designed for slates. While Microsoft has had technology available for years, at the moment I find the Android approach more attractive.
