Motorola XOOM introduces Honeycomb to the world, now available from Verizon

The Motorola XOOM has landed!  For those who have been waiting for an Android tablet running on Android 3.0 (designed specifically for tablets), the Motorola XOOM may be the tablet you have been waiting for.  The Honeycomb tablet can be found on Verizon’s website or Verizon stores across the country for $599.99 with a two year data contract or for $799 if you simply want the Motorola XOOM without being tied down. 

Though the Motorola XOOM is the most feature-rich Android tablet to date, new users will need to wait a bit in order to take advantage of Verizon’s 4G LTE network and Adobe Flash.  Motorola is claiming that the XOOM’s LTE upgrade should be available within 90 days while Adobe is hoping to have Flash 10.2 ready for the XOOM within the coming weeks. 

Thanks to our friends at Verizon, we’ve managed to get our hands on the Motorola XOOM.  After some hands-on time with the Honeycomb tablet, we’re hoping to share our initial thoughts and impressions. 

Now that Honeycomb has arrived, we’re wondering how many of you are going to be picking up a new Android tablet.  Is the Motorola XOOM what you’ve been waiting for or are you planning to wait a bit to see how the T-Mobile G-Slate and Galaxy Tab 10.1 turn out?
