Close Up Pictures Of Motorola 10-inch Honeycomb Tablet Appear

The Motorola tablet, the same one that was handled by Andy Rubin at the launch of the Google Nexus S, will be launched on Verizon Wireless according to a series of pictures that have emerged online.

As usual, Engadget delivers the goods and they seem to be quite tasty. The tablet has a front facing camera located in the middle of the top bezel and the tablet's frame itself is quite thin.

The tablet will have a 10-inch capacitive screen with a HD resolution (1280x800 pixels), 512MB RAM, a gyroscope and the ability to plug in a 32GB microSD card.

The rest of the configuration is pretty mundane and reminds us of the Advent Vega tablet; microUSB port, mini HDMI, headphone socket, a speaker, a rear camera and dual LED flashes.

There's of course a 1GHz dual core Tegra 2 T20 processor with Android OS 3.0 otherwise known as Honeycomb. The one big unknown remains the price but we're also curious to find out whether it includes 3G.

In theory, the device will be a capable competitor to the Apple iPad, the Cisco Cius and the RIM Blackberry Playbook. We suspect that the other Android handset makers, HTC and Sony Ericsson, already have plans for their own tablets.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
