Motorola Xoom

Motorola’s foray into the Android tablet market – the 10.1-inch Motorola Xoom – is set to land on Australian shores in May, thanks to Telstra. Pricing and release are yet to be nailed down, but inside word is the device will be available with a mobile repayment option (MRO) or via outright purchase.

Warwick Bray, executive director of Telstra Mobility Products, heaped praise on the Xoom tablet in a statement.

“Motorola Xoom arrives at a time when Australians are embracing both mobile tablets and devices powered by Android in record numbers,” he said.

Motorola is holding an event in early May, which is tipped to be the official release of the Xoom tablet and the Atrix smartphone.

Chris Rowland   Managing Director

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

I’ve lost confidence in both Telstra and Motorola since they broke my Defy. It came back from being repaired (allegedly by Motorola) with a software ‘upgrade’ that took it from having the best reception of any phone I’ve tried to by far the worst. When I bought the phone it had Blue Tick status (suitable for rural areas) but Telstra recently announced that status was withdrawn. I’m pretty sure this was due to a fault with the phone whereby in areas of marginal reception, with Background Data turned on, it would poll the cell tower so hard that both phone… Read more »

Will be interesting to see how the pricing compares to the Galaxy Tab 10.1v on Vodafone. If competitive, Telstra might have a sale.

This may be a stupid question, but has happened to Notion Ink’s Adam? It all seems to have gone quiet.
