Confirmed: Telstra Launching Motorola Xoom In May

Those rumours that were floating around last week have proven to be correct, as Telstra’s just announced that it’ll be launching the 10.1-inch Android 3.0 tablet in May 2011.

Motorola Xoom Review: The Future Of Tablets (Whether You Like It Or Not)

It’s taken almost a year to get here. The first tablet to matter since the original iPad. The Xoom is the first real Android tablet. It arrived ahead of the iPad 2 by a hair.

And it’ll get better.
