Motorola is gearing up to roll out a new, cheaper, kid-friendly version of the Motorola Xoom tablet, dubbed, what else, the Motorola Xoom Family Edition.
Priced a little over $100 less than your standard Motorola Xoom tablet at $379, the Xoom Family Edition is more or less exactly the same tablet as the Motorola Xoom, just apparently easier to use. It has the same 1 ghz dual-core processor, the same 10.1 inch display, and a 720p-enabled 5-megapixel camera.
Just about the only difference is the built-in hard drive – rather than the standard Motorola Xoom’s 32GB drive, the Family Edition includes a smaller, still agreeable 16GB drive.
After the kids are done with it, the press release notes, you’ll be able to get back to your work, shooting off emails and editing your documents with included apps – and, of course, you’ll be able to surf the web with it (Wi-FI only).
Speaking of apps, your new Motorola Xoom Family Edition will come packaged with $40 worth of apps at no cost to you. Naturally, the Family Edition will include a few games, including SimCity Deluxe, and Quickoffice Pro HD for the adults, just to name a couple.
The Motorola Xoom Family Edition will be made available exclusively at Best Buy (both in stores and online) starting tomorrow, October 16.
