The Motorola Xoom™ is the first device to hit store shelves featuring Honeycomb, the 3.0 version of Google’s Android operating system built specifically for tablets. In addition, the 1GHz, dual-core NVIDIA® Tegra® 2-powered tablet includes 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 10.1-inch, 1280 x 800 display, 2MP front and 5MP rear facing cameras, 720p HD video capability, HDMI-output, and a variety of different wireless options.

What all this hardware boils down to for you is that there will now be games worth playing. Hundreds of developers are already creating games that specifically take advantage of the hardware inside the Xoom. The team at Halfbrick has released a version of Fruit Ninja that adds real-time lighting and shadows and higher resolution textures, and to Southpeak Interactive’s Monster Madness is the full-featured console experience gamers have been waiting for on mobile devices.
