Motorola recently released the Motorola Zoom tablet. Ever since the iPad came into being many companies have flooded the markets with their own unique tablets. But so far only a few have really stood out. This zoom tablet has been made to dethrone the current king of tablets, the Apple iPad. Or at least that’s what the company hopes for. But can this tablet successfulltake over the title from Apple? Even though it might be too early to tell, it sure is a product that stands out from the many others.
The Motorola Zoom has a sturdy build and is as strong as the iPad in its construction. The Zoom tablet however is bigger than the iPad. It has a 10.1 inch widescreen display and a high resolution of 1280×800 which is actually a little better than its Apple counterpart which only has a resolution of 1024×768 pixels. The large screen improves the viewing experience by a noticeable amount, but ultimately is subject to personal preferences. It also has got a rubberized back to provide extra grip and to prevent any slippage.
The Motorola Zoom runs on the 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core processor and comes with 1GB DDR2 RAM. It also has a pretty good internal storage space of 32 GB and dual facing cameras with duel LED flash. The dual facing cameras are another feature in which the zoom tablet betters the iPad. It has a 2 MP camera in the front and a 5 MP camera on the rear side. Apart from having a 32 GB in built memory, this tablet also has a micro SD slot that can support an additional 32 GB of storage space. It also has flash support which the iPad sadly doesn’t have.
The Motorola Zoom runs on the new Android Honeycomb operating system and has a slight advantage over others as this new O.S is specifically designed for tablets. It also boasts a very attractive user interface. The various menus are quite snappy and screen rotation function is fast and flawless. Another exciting feature of the new O.S is that the Home, Menu and Back buttons are placed on the lower left side of the software interface. This makes navigation more convenient and easier when the tablet is tilted or held vertically. You can also get Honeycomb apps which may not be as diversified as iPad apps , but will also be available in widescreen modes to suit both tablets and other smartphones.
There are also some great accessories for the Zoom tablet to improve the user experience. There is the leather case that can also be used as a stand, a standard dock for charging and display purposes and a speaker HD dock. The speaker HD dock has three USB ports, HDMI output and built in speakers. The tablet also has an impressive battery life of about 10 hours. With so many different features, the Motorola Zoom can certainly turn out to be an iPad killer, but for its steep price of $799.99.
