OK, so unboxings aren't exactly the most exciting videos on the web, but when they involve a certain tablet called the "Motorola XOOM," they're definitely worth a look. Such is Wirefly's latest creation:

Items of note:

  • Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) - boot times seem really fast
  • 10.1-inch 16:10 display - larger than an iPad
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 32GB of internal storage
  • 2MP front camera
  • 5MP rear camera capable of recording 720p HD video

Interestingly, the video mentions a slot for a 4G SIM card, which is odd since Verizon and Motorola say the XOOM will require a hardware software upgrade to connect to LTE.

Update: @V3RDICT just tweeted that the XOOM will be getting LTE capabilities via a software update available on launch day.

One other thing they bring up is that "the Motorola XOOM is available at a great price from Wirefly." Ha.

    This is not a "true" unboxing. When he first opens the box you can see finger prints all over the tablet's screen. There is no way that Motorola is shipping out the Xoom with finger prints.

      Granted, but what are you going to do about about it? Call the police? Oh, wait...

    "Motorola say the XOOM will require a hardware upgrade to connect to LTE"

    Umm, no they don't. Motorola stated its a free software update.

    According to the manual, it mentions that a charger should not be connected to the USB port, as it's only for data. Is he sure that you can trickle charge through the mini-USB?

    Hey I want somebody to ask this guy to try installing the Tegra 2 Flash apk, see if it works or bricks his device! lol

    • Hooman

      Why don't you ask him yourself? be a good boy and don't forget to say the magic word, Please !!!

  • Zigmar

    A proprietary charger?! This is a joke or what?!

  • Steve

    My question is...there's supposed to be a SD card slot, but if he can't take off the back, then where's it supposed to go?
