Motorola Xoom Review

Motorola does not want to lose in the tablet market.  Motorola enters tablet market with the launch of their products Motorola Xoom.

Motorola Xoom is a tablet computer that predicted the future will surpass iPad tablet, Blackberry Playbook or Samsung Galaxy Tab.At the Consumer Electronics Association (CES) 2011, Motorola Xoom was selected as the best gadget of the most eagerly awaited by lovers of the tablet. So, what features are buried in the Motorola Xoom, here is the Motorola Xoom review:

Motorola Xoom is the first tablet that uses the Android 3.0Honeycomb. 10.1-inch size, with 1 GHz processor Dual Core CPUNVIDIA Tegra 2. The battery is durable enough for about 10 hours. 2MP camera front and rear 5 MP camera with 720 HD video capture.Motorola Xoom is available on the Wifi network (n) Bluetooth 2.1, 3G,and 4G.

First Look!

Cool! With a material made from cheap plastic, but not memorable.On the front side of the screen is filled with full touch screen with the upper side there is a front camera. Under the port side is equippedwith microHDMI, microUSB for data transfer, the charger port andconnector which I assume to connect to the docking. On the left sidethere is a volume button, the up side, there is a slot for MicroSD andSIM Card slot 4G, and 3.5mm headset jack. Go to the back side,there is a power button, 5MP camera with LED flash is also 2 pieces of the loudspeaker. Motorola Xoom weighs 730 grams with the sizedimensions of 249.1 x 167.8 x 12.9 mm, feels a bit heavy when in carry.

Screen and display

Motorola Xoom has a screen measuring 10.1-inch TFT capacitivehas a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels support Multi-touch inputmethod - Accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate - Gyroscope andbarometer sensors and can produce 16 million colors. The view wasas usual, because it supports Honeycomb Android OS 3.2, it will not be weird with how it looks. But can be modified by the applicationlauncher that are available in Android Market. For this time we tried to apply the application launcher of the SPB, the SPB Shell 3D. So that the display can display the 3D menu.


In the test to play games with Dungeon Hunter HD, HD and SamuraiCaptain America II: Vengeance. Very satisfying! Because already support HD resolution screen, the resolution of HD games run smoothly without any lag at all. When playing the game, game  loading was very fast.


Motorola Xoom has a 5MP camera autofocus support. Interestingly,on the front side there is a 1.3MP camera for video chat. The resultfor a camera light when the tablet is quite clear enough. In the lowlight conditions, the results are not good because the noise wasclearly visible. To feature video recording (720p HD format support)the results were not broken and it is quite clear.


Multimedia at Motorola Xoom is also interesting. When we try streaming on Youtube a result there is no lag,  almost said no buffering . The sound produced from the loudspeaker is also very clearstereo sound. Bass and treble are not broken when invited to playMP3 songs and the volume is maximized. From the headset evenwhen tested his voice is round and very entertaining.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Review

As one tough competitor Apple in the tablet market, Samsung sincreasingly aggressive in making new products. Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is produced to fill the tablet market that is still competitive. I thought Samsung Galaxy Tab version 8.9 will not be released because it is so similar to the iPad and the condition was heating up between the Samsung with Apple.

Samsung Galaxy 8.9 as an alternative between the two tablet Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 7 inches. But as a user of OS Honeycomb, Samsung Galaxy 8.9 became the new idol, after the golden age of the Galaxy Tab 7-inch versions of the old. Samsung Galaxy 8.9 is not even a rival Galaxy Tab 10.1 with other words, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 has its own fans.

Samsung Galaxy 8.9 which has a 447 gram weight is just like a guard defending the people's tastes. Samsung Galaxy 8.9 used as a competitor for the iPad, so as not to break down the dominance of the Galaxy Tab 7 and 10.1. Samsung Galaxy 8.9 supported two core 1GHz processor. TouchWiz User Interface UX  prepared for the Honeycomb  Tablet, obviously to give a new experience.

Design Galaxy Tab 8.9 is very similar to the Galaxy Tab 10.1, front panel  displays an elegant and polished with aluminum and rounded curves. The back is also made of gray plastic that looks like metal.

Samsung Galaxy 8.9 is complemented by a variety of multimedia features, such as access to HDMI, stereo speakers that will be supporting components when playing video and audio, as well as a wide range of applications. For business users, this series has clearly replaced the notebook. Polaris Office is ready to read all the files of Office, also notes that can combine text and a small scratch.

With landscape mode, 2MP camera located on top of the screen,while the power button, volume rocker and a headphone jacklocated on the top edge. Along the bottom there are two small stereo speakers and Samsung proprietary port. In the back there is a 3MP camera and LED flash. 3MP rear camera Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is not very impressive because the camera does not have high resolution and additional features modern superphone, but fast enough to photograph. Samsung also provides several scene modes, such as Landscape, Night and Sport. 2MP camera on the front is quite good when used for video chat. Unfortunately, there is no SD card slot to increase the 16GB onboard storage.

Samsung offers a choice of good software applications for use on Galaxy Tab 8.9. in addition to the typical applications such as Android Honeycomb Gmail, Altitude and Movie Studio, is also available a few third-party applications such as Amazon Kindle,Polaris Office to edit documents and news reader, Pulse.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 fill with the software itself, including shops and Music Hub Media Hub. Put Social Hub application of Twitter and Facebook feeds into one convenient location. Google Applications Market also offers books and applications for sale, Galaxy Tab 8.9 can also run a special game that can be downloaded via the Nvidia TegraZone applications.

Honeycomb is now gaining popularity among users of the tablet, then focus your attention on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9. Please.. read original review in here.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z470 Review

This bright blue notebook was fashionable. Surface casing is slick and shiny add cool effects.

In features, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z470 is similar to LenovoThinkPad Edge E420s. Both are equipped with a 2.3 GHz Corei5 2410M. However, there are differences in memory capacity.IdeaPad Z470 memory is only half of the ThinkPad Edge E420s. Other differences, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z470 does not have afingerprint reader, USB powered, and the SIM card slot. IdeaPadZ470 is aimed at consumers who are considered not requirethose features. Compared with the ThinkPad Edge E420s,IdeaPad Z470 is more compact, but is thicker and heavier. This is because the battery is not built-in like the ThinkPad Edge420s.

I like the placement of its USB 2.0-scattered in three placesbecause it means flexibility. In addition, its wide palmrest serves to reduce heat when used for a long time. Multitouchnyatouchpad is large enough and has the texture, so comfortable when in contact with the tip of index finger and thumb. On the front right of the latest notebooks have a switch to enable /disable feature Wi-Fi.

As with all Lenovo notebooks, Z470 has a special button OneKey Recovery system, which is used to restore the notebook to its factory defaults if the notebook is having problems.

But now Lenovo IdeaPad Z470 has emerged with a new version of a higher specification  Lenovo IdeaPad Z470 - 10225MU 2nd generation Intel Core i5-2430M (2.40GHz 1333MHz 3MB)

Toshiba Satellite L735-S3220RD

The Toshiba Satellite L735-S3220RD is a good performance notebook equipped with the Intel Core i5-2410M dual-core processor and enough memory. The notebook also light enough to travel with and has a fashionable design. On the other hand, the notebook was only able to provide about three and a half hours of battery life and has an all-plastic, somewhat flimsy construction.

Build and Design
Like most of the entry level notebooks in the Toshiba Satellite series, the new 13.3-inch Satellite L735-S3220RD is made almost entirely out of molded plastics and has the familiar rounded clamshell construction on the display lid and around the chassis. This notebook sports a red and black dot matrix design with a glossy Toshiba Fusion finish. The glossy finish embodies the display cover, screen surround, keyboard, and palmrests. To add a touch of style, the area just below the LCD has a bumpy textured feel to it along with the dot matix design. The overall dimensions are 12.95” x 8.7” x 1.10”~1.45”, and it weighs 4.6 pounds without the battery. This notebook is meant to appeal to those who want to have a travel-friendly notebook with a slightly bigger screen size than your typical ultraportable netbook.

All in all, the structure and design of the Toshiba Satellite L735-S3220RD is made to fit the average budget-conscious consumers' needs while on the go. The design is quite stylish, even though the glossiness tends to collect fingerprints easily almost entirely throughout. Our only question now is, how will its build and construction hold up while traveling?

Pressing down with a good amount of pressure in the center of the keyboard resulted in the chassis giving way; this is due to the all-plastic construction. Although it didn't dip down horribly, it was certainly still noticable and might be a problem with users who normally press down hard while typing. The area above the keyboard and beneath the display gave way even more when we pressed down on it, which may cause problems while traveling. Likewise, the display lid flexed too much for comfort and caused "ripples" when bending the corners inward. The palmrests and bottom of the notebook were the only areas with firm construction. Overall, though, the build quality is not what we would call travel-friendly and it is of questionable durability--the notebook could be easily scratched or beaten up if you are a heavy traveler.

The L735 is somewhat upgradeable and getting to the hardware that you can upgrade is simple: remove two screws and pull upward on the access panel and you can remove the Toshiba hard drive and RAM. The L735 has two RAM slots for up to 8GB of memory.

Ports and Features
The ports and features selection on the L735 is considerably above average. It has HDMI, VGA, three USB 2.0 ports, and an 8-in-1 memory card reader (not to mention a Blu-ray player). On the downside, it does not has a USB 3.0 port or eSATA. The memory card reader supports SD, SDHC, SDXC, miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, and Multi Media Card formats. Strangely enough, you will not be able to notice the memory card reader unless you lift the notebook's nearly beneath the chassis.
