Motorola Xoom Takes Spotlight in Verizon CES Keynote

Cutting-edge capabilities from Motorola’s Xoom tablet computer captivated
the audience during the opening keynote provided by Xoom carrier
Verizon at the Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas, Jan. 6.

Verizon CEO and chairman Ivan Seidenberg and Verizon president and COO
Lowell McAdam discussed the challenges in bringing voice and video to mobile
devices and home-entertainment systems all over the country.

Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha joined the
executives on stage to show off Xoom, the Android 3.0 tablet coming from Motorola and partner
Verizon Wireless in February.

The device–powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor promising greater
speed than the existing iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab–will be 4G capable.

The Xoom’s new custom widgets, notifications and 3D Google Maps went on
display yesterday, courtesy of a Google video posted to YouTube, and at Motorola’s
official press event.

The presentation also included a brief teaser for the Motorola Droid Bionic smartphone (dual-core,
2GHZ total power, 4.3-inch screen), coming on Verizon’s 4G LTE network in the
second quarter.
