The touch tablets are coming!

CES 2011 is in full swing and the touch tablets are coming. Verizon introduced the Motorola XOOM, an Android 3.0 10.1 inch touch tablet during their keynote address. So, this is the competitor to the iPad? The specs are impressive for the XOOM. The XOOM has a faster processor than the iPad, a front-facing 2 megapixel camera, and is 4G capable. Let’s not forget the gyroscope for gaming, support for Adobe Flash 10.1, and 720p HD video.

Motorola released a promotional video prior to CES 2011 to start the hype of a new touch tablet. It was interesting to see how Motorola position this touch tablet as the end result of the ‘tablets’ historic evolution. View the video below and do not miss the iPad!!

Did you see the iPad? I thought it was interesting for Motorola to infer the iPad as being ‘outdated’ or is an ‘older generation’ than their touch tablet. The iPad was only released, what, about 7 months ago!

Well, the unveiling yesterday was a clear indicator of  Verizon and Motorola’s effort to present a little bit of competition to the iPad in the touch tablet market. Is it better? I do not know, yet! We will have to wait to see the consumer responses over the next few months. In the meantime, the following are Motorola’s video of the new XOOM and the making of the XOOM.
