With an intention to flood the market with its Xoom tablets, Motorola has reportedly asked Taiwanese firm Catcher Technology and Foxconn Technology to supply parts for its upcoming tablet.
Motorola has plans to produce up to one million Xoom tablets within the first three months of 2011. Considering Motorola's Xoom claim to be an iPad killer, the figure is not incredible.
The Motorola Xoom runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system. The much-anticipated tablet device will be launched via Verizon Wireless, which is considered as the best provider of network service.
The Xoom features a 10.1-inch screen that offers a resolution of 1200 by 800 pixels, dual-core 1GHz processors, a 5-megapixels camera that can capture 720p HD video, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera that allows video chats,
1080p HD video playback and Adobe's Flash Player.
For gaming, the Xoom offers a gyroscope, a barometer, e-compass and accelerometer. The manufacture will start it shipping with a 3G radio for wireless broadband. But, the device will be upgraded to 4G Long Term Evolution by swapping a hardware modem later in 2011.
The Motorola Xoom will be released in May this year.
