It could be viewed as no longer linux at this point but regardless of what you consider Android, the new Moto Xoom tablet is pretty slick. It’s no replacemet for a laptop or even a net book (at least the one I have) but it excels in every other way. Application list to follow.
I’ve been watching all the hype about Verizon updating it’s line of MotoDroid phones and getting annoyed about having to wait. Officially now, it’s been rolling out but they are projecting Aug. 18th for completing the roll-out. It’s an open phone, why can’t I update it myself? Well, I didn’t like the prospect of “bricking” it and having to shell out money for a new one. That said, I stumbled on this post from Phandroid and couldn’t help myself. I am now a Froyo user in just over 10 minutes. Easy, easy, easy!

I’m not really concerned with what kind of a geek this makes me or how i’ll burn in hell for adopting the Google way of life, the Motorola Droid running Android 2.0 is a nice little piece of geek heaven. And yes, i’ve even plugged into Eclipse IDE with USB and developer/debug mode turned on. I did that the second day I owned it 🙂
