Samsung might have made some cool commercials for the Galaxy Tab, but you and I both know that when it comes to advertisements, Motorola still reigns supreme. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the first promo video for their upcoming Honeycomb tablet is nothing short of epic:

As you can see, Moto thinks it has what it takes to take out both the iPad and the Galaxy Tab - in fact, the video calls the former "a giant iPhone" and accuses the latter of running "Android OS for a phone." Furthermore, tablets of old (i.e. ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic tablets) are ridiculed as having "good graphics" but "difficult portability."

Unfortunately, the video doesn't reveal many new details on the tablet other than confirming that it will run Honeycomb, as evidenced by the bee seen at the end of the video. However, the last few seconds of the teaser hint at an unveiling at CES 2011, so hopefully we'll be able to get a closer look at this beast before long.

Just remember, Motorola - those are big words, and you'd better deliver.

    I get it and im a regular geek... ;) I just needed to see the damn product. How do you keep an idiot in suspense? Don't show him the honeycomb. And guaranteed it will be 900$.

    Wifi only version PLEASE!!!!!!!!

    I have a smart phone, I don't need a 3g link on this. It will be used 99% of the time at home. I can tether it to my phone if I need on the go access somewhere. If I have to buy a freaking phone plan and contract, I won't get one. Please do a wifi only version. I've had my hopes set on this very tablet for a while now.

    I wouldnt buy it if Motorola payed money to me. I have bought an Motorola android product and they couldnt provide any updates and basically it is a brick with such old software (and only few months old).

    Many other Motorola owners are having the same problems with Android phones from Motorola. Motorola have great teasers and advertisements, and actually they make good hardware but right after you buy the product, you realize that you were tricked into buying it :( Because even great hardware can not function without proper software!

    You can easily search for Motorola's epic failure on Motorola facebook pages or their forums.
