Apple iPad may have got the jump on the rest of the tablet world but Motorola, in conjunction with Google Honeycomb, have come up with something that may just give the Apple iPad a run for its’ money.

“This is really the next generation of tablets,” Motorola Mobility device team head Alain Mutricy said as he held a Xoom in one hand at the CES2011 awards ceremony in Las Vegas this week.

“Our partnership with Google has been very intense and has enabled some great technology.”

With a 10.1-inch (25.6-centimeter) screen, the Xoom is about the same size as Apple’s iPad, which hit stores in April and has other leading technology companies around the world scrambling to catch up.

After seeing the following video of the Motorola Xoom in action ‘we’re excited”!
