Xoom heads to Europe
Motorola teased us with the Xoom tablet back at CES 2011 and we really liked what we saw. The tablet is the first to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb specifically made for tablet machines. The catch with the Xoom is that the first prices that have surfaced in the US are close to $800 making it out of reach for many that are interested.

Motorola has announced that the Xoom will be heading to Europe at MWC 2011 today in Spain. The slick little tablet will pack 3G and WiFi for Europe and will land in Q2 2011 at an undisclosed price. I would expect the Xoom to have a price close to the $800 range that Americans get. I also think we will see prices with a contract that are much lower than that range.
The Xoom has a 10.1-inch screen with 1280 x 800 resolution and the tablet has HDMI output. It has a 5MP rear camera that can record 720p video and a front facing camera with 2MP resolution for video chats. The battery is good for ten hours of video playback and lots more.
