Tablet PCs are now the latest craze when it comes to technology. They offer the same capabilities of notebooks with less the hassle and more speed. In addition, they offer wireless freedom like we have never seen before. It all started with Apple’s iPad. It came with purely touch screen capabilities and allowed us to do tasks such as browsing the web and running apps without the need for physical keyboards. After the launch of the iPad other manufacturers started to follow suit. We soon witnessed the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.
Once introduced to tablet technology, we quickly made use of their features. We could now make use of their pinch to zoom feature to get a closer look at images and photos. We took advantage of these highly portable 3G devices. We could now make use of more apps. More and more people made use of an assortment of apps in one device. We soon found ourselves multi-tasking, running various applications at one time. Unfortunately, this decreased performance.
The more we multi-task, the more we put a strain on the single-core processors these tablets came with. No matter how powerful a single-core processor may be, it will still divide its attention to the most demanding task you are executing. This is why manufacturers decided to equip their tablet PCs with dual-core processors.
The first tablet to make use of these processors was Blackberry’s Playbook. It came with a dual-core processor that could multi-task with ease. This 2011, Motorola followed suit. It will release its dual-core processor tablet with the Motorola Xoom.
There is more to the Motorola Xoom than just its processor. It comes with a unique OS that is yet to be seen in tablets. This is the Android 3.0 OS (Honeycomb). It is an Android OS specifically designed for tablet PCs. Not only will it make you enjoy more from web fidelity; it will also make multi-tasking faster and smoother.
2011 is scheduled to release highly advanced smartphones and tablets. These devices offer features that are yet to be seen. Experiencing them first-hand leaves a large number of people anxious in anticipation. One of these devices is the superior processing power offered only by the Motorola Xoom.
