Motorola announced at MWC that it will begin selling the Xoom tablet in Europe. The company will offer both a 3G/WiFi and a WiFi-only version. The Xoom runs Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), the first Android OS specifically designed for tablets. It features a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and a 10.1-inch HD screen. The 1280×800 display also uses a 16:10 ratio to make typing on the tablet easier.
