Some five months later, the Motorola Xoom is officially a failure. Motorola messed up big time with its first Android 3.0 tablet. How can old Moto steal some thunder from the iPad 2? Perhaps by borrowing a few elements from its competitors and including a 2048x1536 resolution display.
It's been clear for a while that Amazon is currently working on an Android-powered tablet, one that would compliment its kindle rather than replace it. And now it looks like we may be getting it sooner rather than later.
Come this October, Dell might have the most powerful tablet on the market. At least, that's what its Peju code-named tablet running Windows 8 looks like on paper.
