Xoom 4g

Everyone knows that the Xoom, the first android 3.0 tablet, was a relative flop, selling well below its predictions. Most of this was due to the fact that it was indeed the first and consumers felt the device to be a bit rushed. Motorola seems to be trying again, however, with what seems to be the Xoom 4g. No details have been released yet, but it would seem that it is a tad bit slimmer...

Who better to tell where Android is going in the tablet and phone space than Google? This vid is long, so you can do what I did, and "skip around" :)

Top 5 Android Games

I'll admit the Android platform is lacking in terms of quantity when it comes to games, but not quality. Here are some some of my favorites:

1) Emulators. Snesoid, nesoid, GBCoid, Gameboid, PSX4droid. iPhone users will never have the joy of reliving their childhood memories.
2) I hate scrabble. I love Words with Friends. 'nuff said. (can also play with iPhone users)
3) You've just created your own game company, can you make the next blockbuster? I have never played through a game so many times, I think I'm on my 47th run.
4) Loved Galaga/Space Invaders growing up? Yes-you'll love this, No-you'll love this.
5) Ok, so may or may not be considered a "game", but no less addicting or fun. Can you stump the self-proclaimed "genius", Akinator, in a game similar to "20-questions"?
Just thought I'd upload some walls for your enjoyment, hope you like!

Motorola Xoom

The best chance that android has at knocking the iPad from it's throne could possibly lie with Motorola's newest tablet running Android 3.0 (honeycomb). The specs for the Xoom are astounding as far as tablets go (see below), so what could possibly keep it from killing the iPad? The $800 price tag, thats what. Honestly, Motorola isn't going to gain too much ground with this piece of work with a price like that. Only those who have both a true love of Android and a huge wallet will be buying this one, unfortunately.

Basic Stats:
CPU: 1GHz Dual-Core Tegra 2
Storage: 32gb (expandable)
Resolution: 1280x800
Camera(s): Front- 2mp; Back- 5mp
Ports: HDMI; USB 2.0
Flash support: Yes
