They help keep the Xoom Tablet free from scratches and damaged caused by normal wear and tear. The internet is a great place to purchase tablet covers. A number of online stores sell them.
The Xoom Tablet utilizes Android 3.0 Honeycomb software, which was created by Google especially for tablet devices. It comes with two cameras, one in the front and the other in the rear. A camcorder and adobe flash player is also included. The Xoom's 10.1 inch widescreen HD display is generous and provides the user with plenty of room to watch movies or participate in video conferences.
Motorola Xoom Tablet covers help individuals protect their investment. Though the Xoom is sturdy, it can still be damaged and/or broken. To protect it from scratches and nicks, it is important to keep it covered when it is not in use. The very best way to do this is to use a tablet cover.
Some, though not all, Xoom Tablet covers are made from a light weight silicone material. These particular ones are flexible and durable, both attributes that are necessary to adequately protect the device. The design is Argyle and the cover wraps around the entire Skin. Because of the latter (the cover being able to wrap completely around the device), it is easy to transport it from one place to another.
The Motorola Xoom is expected to cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $700, perhaps even more. This would make it a pretty healthy investment for anyone. It is thus important to protect it.

Now that Apple has shown the way with the iPad, quite a few other manufacturers are scrambling to join the tablet revolution by launching their own products targeting this same sector of the computing market. One such highly-publicized product is the Motorola Xoom, which was announced in January and hit the streets on 24 February.
A tablet refers to a new type of hand-held computer, exemplified by the Apple iPad. Smaller than a laptop or netbook, but larger than a smartphone, a tablet is thought by many to be the future of internet browsing on the go. Certainly that would appear to be true based upon the runaway success of the iPad, so this explains the eagerness of others, in this case Motorola, to get in on the act.
The Motorola Xoom has attracted special attention through being the first tablet computer to be based on the new 'Honeycomb' version of the Android operating system. Honeycomb is version 3.0 of Android, which is an open source OS pioneered by Google that has gained a firm following among smartphone users. Compared to other incarnations of Android, Honeycomb is said to be optimized for use on a tablet.
The Xoom is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2.1 GHz dual-core CPU chip, and comes fitted with 1 GB of RAM memory, along with 32 GB of onboard flash memory for storage of data. Additional data storage is possible by using the Xoom's SD card port or the USB 2.0 port. The device's 10.1 inch display has a resolution of 1280x800 pixels and supports HD video at 1080p. There is also an HDMI port, which enables connection to a TV.
In accordance with the idea that tablets should share many of the features of smartphones, the Xoom has a camera. In actual fact, it has two cameras: a 5 megapixel stills and video cam facing to the rear of the device, plus a 2 megapixel webcam facing forwards.
When it comes to connectivity to the internet, buyers of the Xoom have two options. One version of the Xoom has 3G connectivity, and US buyers of this version are required to take out a contract with Verizon. A second version of the device will come with Wi-Fi connectivity but this is not due for release until later in 2011.
One serious drawback of the Apple iPad is that it cannot display web pages that use the Adobe Flash player, for example YouTube. The Xoom, on the other hand, is fully Flash compatible. As one would expect given that Android is a Google creation, the Xoom comes pre-loaded with the Google Chrome browser.
In common with the iPad and other such devices, the Xoom does not waste front panel space with any hardware buttons. The entire front is taken up by the screen, and text input is via a virtual, onscreen keyboard that appears when necessary.
Based on its specification, the Motorola Xoom would seem to have a good chance of making some serious waves, but it is of course fighting both Apple's 'cool' factor, and also the fact that a souped-up iPad 2 is on the way, which is likely to give Apple the advantage again before very long.
In the world of smartphones and laptop computers, there is one device that has the best features of both devices. The tablet is a fairly new device and has since become one of the most popular portable devices on the market. They have many of the same features as a smart phone with the speed and power of a laptop. One of the newest but best tablets is the Motorola Xoom. Before the iPad, there had been very few tablets on the market but once the iPad was released, every company went into overdrive trying to keep up with Apple. Motorola has finally produced a product that is the closest thing to competition the iPad has. With a unique feel and an Android Operating System specifically designed for tablets, the Motorola Xoom is a truly terrific product.
One of the first things that users will notice about this tablet is that the display has a very sharp and pristine look. The 10.1 inch display sports a terrific resolution of 1200 by 800 pixels which give it one of the best screens for a mobile device to date. With this size screen, watching movies and videos is fun and enjoyable because the user does not have to struggle to see the detail of the movie. For people that enjoy having a laptop while they travel, the tablet gives them the same functionality as a laptop on a screen that is good for reading news and viewing websites.
A second thing that users will like about the Motorola Xoom is that it has access to the Android Market. This is where users will download applications to be used on their tablet. There are many applications to choose from and if the user can find the correct apps, the tablet may function better than a PC. One of the must have applications is the Google Maps. Th
