Motorola Unveils New Android Devices at CES

This week at the Consumer Electronics Show, Motorola unveiled four brand new devices powered by Google’s open source Android mobile operating system.

Motorola’s Xoom tablet running Android Honeycomb 3.0 was the headliner.

LinuxInsider Paul Hartsock has the story.

Expectations surrounding the Motorola tablet were running high long before this week. In December, a teaser video surfaced on the Web implying Motorola had a tablet device in store, and rumors suggested it would run the Android 3.0 operating system.

“We have seen the market for tablets grow over the last 12 months, and I’ve been asked many times whether we’re going to enter this space,” Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha told the audience.

Jha then proved the hearsay true in unveiling the Xoom. It will run Honeycomb, the first version of Android made specifically for tablet computers.

In addition to Xoom, Motorola presented Cliq 2, Droid Bionic and Atrix. According to Motorola, Atrix is the most powerful smartphone on the market.
