Honeycomb, won't you be my tablet?

Motorola Xoom Family Edition

The Motorola Xoom Family Edition Android tablet is on the top of my Christmas list.

With all this hype about tablets of late, I had yet to find a reason to buy one. That is until I walked into Best Buy today and came upon the Motorola Xoom FE. What’s not to like? Android Honeycomb on a 1GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 1280×800 resolution, WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS, front and rear cameras, HDMI out and SD card expandability.

Honestly it’s the first tablet that I wouldn’t mind using for surfing the web away from my 22” LG monitor. Transfer a video or PDF to the SD card and curl up in bed without the weight of a laptop on me. Hook it up to an LCD TV and use it as a DVD player, or a gaming device. Fire up Skype and do a video call while walking around the backyard. Google Map our route using the free ATT WIFI at any McDonalds while enjoying a chocolate fudge sundae.

The uses for a tablet with the above listed features are endless, and I can see myself flexing all of it’s possibilities. I can’t wait for Santa to arrive ;)

Oh, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o’ hair and a piece o’ bone
And made a walkin’ talkin’ Honeycomb
