Motorola tablet gets some freebies

American telecommunications giant Motorola has announced they are including a free keyboard and mouse with every one of their Motorola Xoom tablets sold, throughout the month of July.

The wireless keyboard and mouse effectively turns the Moto tablet into of a more usable device, such as a laptop or notebook, with its physical typing mechanism that is worth around £75.

Motorola’s Xoom was one of the first Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.0 based tablets to arrive, with an operating system that has been specifically designed for such a large screen product and could very well be a serious contender to the iPad’s crown.

The Xoom tips up with a 10.1-inch 1280×800 16:9 touch screen, whilst being powered by a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, with 1GB of DDR2 computer memory and a 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash that’s capable of HD video capture – with media displayable from the HDMI socket, to a compatible TV screen.

The Motorola Xoom is available through the likes of Carphone Warehouse, Best Buy, Currys and PC World.

One Mobile caught up with Motorola Mobility at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year, where we published a hands-on video walkthrough of the Xoom that can be seen here.
