While all tablets have some USP, several analysts are betting on Motorola Xoom to give some real competition to Apple iPad. It is also seen as the device that can give a boost to Motorola‘s fortunes.
Here’s looking into what gives Motorola and edge over Apple iPad2.
It was widely speculated that iPad 2 may sport a bigger screen size than the first-generation iPad. However, iPad 2 retains its predecessor’s screen size with 9.7-inch LED-backlit display.
The second-generation iPad too has a dual camera, however, with no major upgrade. According to Apple, the camera will record video, HD (720p) up to 30 frames per second with audio and still camera with 5x digital zoom.
However, Apple website does not mention how many megapixels iPad 2 cameras have. According to Web reports, rear-facing camera on the iPad 2 is mere 1 megapixel in comparison to Motorola Xoom’s 5 megapixels.
Unlike iPad, Xoom comes with an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port and USB port for users to connect to other devices.
Motorola soon plans to roll out its Xoom tablet fully equipped with 4G LTE support. However, iPad 2 misses out the super-fast 4G wireless connectivity. Apple left this out even though Verizon is 4G LTE ready.
For now, iPad 2 will rely on AT&T’s and Verizon’s 3G cellular network.
