Google & Motorola Worked Together to Create the Top Tablet

On one side Google, on the other side Motorola, and when they came together they created one heck of a great Android 3.0 Honeycomb comes the Motorola XOOM.

What's Google getting out of this you might ask? According to Dave Burke, the engineering manager for Mobile at Google, 'we wanted to work with the most  advanced hardware' and Google believes that's the XOOM.

We already know the XOOM has a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual-Core chipset. We also know that many of the new tablets will have this same chipset. It must be the whole package working together in the XOOM that has so impressed Google.

Motorola has stated that more features would be added to the XOOM, both before and after launch. Included in the over-the-air updates, there will be a connected music player. Burke made clear to all tablet manufacturers that they are free to tweak the platform as needed, because of Android's open source code.
