Motorola XOOM Family Edition Hitting Stores Soon

So apparently Motorola did some secret focus group poll thingy and came up with the bright idea of packaging kid-centric content into a $500 device and calling it the “Motorola XOOM Family Edition.” What a brilliant idea (insert sarcasm). Most of us parents are out shopping for tech products made by Playschool because they’re indestructible, and here comes Motorola with the idea that what parents really want, is to hand over a $500 dollar easily-destructible device to their children. Talk about polar opposites!

Anyways, the Motorola XOOM Family Edition will be hitting stores soon and includes exclusive content from Kid Mode by Zoodles along with $40 worth of pre-loaded apps like Asphalt 6 by Gameloft. So really all this is, is a Motorola XOOM packaged with a bunch of apps that Motorola feels you will want. I feel like they just aren’t listening. The only thing we want — is a lower price. Who knows, maybe I’m way off on this one. What do you guys think? Is this a scatterbrained idea or something neat and marketable? I’d love to hear your opinions on this one so please leave a comment below.

AT&T Scheduled to Get Xperia X10 Late July, Who Cares?

Engadget Mobile is reporting that AT&T is signed up to receive the Sony Ericsson X10 in week 30 of the fiscal year. This could mean that we could see the handset released in late July or early August. This would bring AT&T to the Android table in a significant way, with the last of the “big 4″ carriers supporting an Android flagship device. Their earlier Android handset entries being somewhat disappointing, the X10 could give the Android faithful on that carrier something to look forward to.

    Well I can confirm that the Xoom can handle it. I have a 5year old and a 1 year old who use mine all the friggin time. Drop it throw it…it keeps on ticking. Not to mention they are giving out iPads in kindergartens so they probably want to show the world Xoom can do it too.

      See I have 3 young ones and I’d be nervous as heck to let them handle a device like that. Glad to know it can stand up to a beating. Thanks.
