I purchased a wifi-only Motorola Xoom in Hongkong back in June 2011 for a little more than 25k in Philippine pesos. It’s cheap considering that in the country the same configuration costs about P30k or more. The Motorola wifi-only Xoom comes with 32GBs of internal memory built-in with the option of putting in another 32GBs of microSD storage expanding memory capacity to 64 GBs! It also came with the latest Android firmware version 3.0.1 or more affectionately named Honeycomb. This firmware was specifically designed for the new tablets that started rolling out this year such as the Motorola Xoom, the Samsung Galaxy Pad 10.1 and others.

After more than a month of use and upgrading its firmware and ROM to the latest ones provided by the awesome devs at XDA which came up with stable overclocking firmware, I must say I am very happy with it as it can withstand the workload it was designed for and more!

At the beginning of this year, people thinking of buying the Xoom were concerned about the dearth of applications designed for 10-inch tablets. Since it’s release, more and more applications designed for the tablets were made available for users to download from the Market. At this point, a tablet user will be able to find an application that will suit his or her needs and the one or two apps that have not been updated for Honeycomb will be updated very soon.
 
The Motorola Xoom is one of the best (if not THE best) 10.1 Honeycomb-powered tablets available for purchase today and I highly it recommend to people looking for PC functionality in such a small package. For more information, visit Motorola’s website at http://www.motorola.com or leave comments or questions below and I’ll try to answer them to the best of my ability.

UPDATE: Since this article was written, I have upgraded the Motorola Xoom’s firmware to the new Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) version 4.0.3 provided by the EOS Team from xda-developers. I continue to enjoy the tablet and I will not exchange it for any other tablet in the world!
