Motorola's highly anticipated Xoom Android tablet finally has a launch date and pricing details (at least in the US), with the much hyped tablet hitting the shelves on 24 February for US$799.

Read our Motorola Xoom preview and check out our guide to the best upcoming tablets in 2011.

The Motorola Xoom's price and launch details have all but been confirmed after tech blog Engadget published an advertisement from US store Best Buy revealing the details.

The Motorola Xoom tablet is equipped with a 10.1in touchscreen, and runs the latest version of Google's Android platform: 3.0 or 'Honeycomb'. The device also has dual cameras, a HDMI out port, 32GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot and is the first of many tablets running Android 3.0 that will compete with the Apple iPad.

Motorola hasn't announced any pricing or launch details for Australia, but the Xoom is expected to be available down under in the coming months. Watch this space.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
