Aaron unboxes Verizon's Motorola XOOM, the first Honeycomb tablet available in retail stores. Spec-wise, it's an awesome tablet, with a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 10.1-inch display with 1280 by 800 pixels, 5-megapixel camera, front-facing camera for video calling. Most importantly, it offers Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), the first version of Android that's optimized for tablets. It's the first real competitor to the iPad and Apple's tablet monopoly, but at $800 (full retail), will consumers bite?
