Move over iPad, Motorola unveils 4G Android tablet for Verizon

NEW YORK (AP) -- Motorola Mobility Inc. plans to roll out a tablet computer that will use the upcoming Honeycomb version of Google Inc.'s Android software and run on Verizon Wireless' new 4G wireless network.

CEO Sanjay Jha showed off the company's first tablet, the Xoom, during a news conference Wednesday in advance of the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The Xoom comes with a 10.1-inch screen, dual-core processor, front-facing camera that supports Google Talk for video chatting and a 5-megapixel camera that can take high-definition videos.

The Xoom will begin selling in the first quarter. Initially it will work with Verizon's 3G network and will be upgradeable to 4G in the second quarter.

Verizon began deploying 4G last year.
