Motorola’s Honeycomb Tablet to be Named Xoom?

December 23, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

Motorola is said to be grabbing the name Xoom in all the countries it can. This means they plan to be using it in an upcoming product. Could this be their Honeycomb tablet? It doesn’t seem to apply to phones, because the trademark was obtained in a category that involves: “mobile computers and related accessories, namely, docks, cradles, mounts, holders, stands, carrying cases, covers, protective or decorative covers, batteries, power adaptors, cables, connectors, headsets and speakers; hand held computers, lap top computers, tablet computers, electronic notepads, computers, mobile data communications apparatus.”

The Motorola tablet will be the first one with Honeycomb, and they had help from Google building it, so I’m sure it will be one of the best ones that will come next year, too. It will probably come in both 7 inch and 10 inch sizes, and they might even have a 4G LTE chip that works on Verizon’s network. All it needs now is a version of Android that will manage to impress and make the competition look last generation.
