Motorola Mobility and Maxis Bring Motorola XOOM™ Wi-Fi to Malaysia
April 29, 2011
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Motorola Mobility, Inc. today announced the award-winning Motorola XOOM™ Wi-Fi will launch with Maxis in Malaysia this May. Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi runs on Android™ 3.0 (Honeycomb) designed specifically for tablets.
Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi features a 1GHz dual-core processor, 32 GB of memory and 1GB of RAM, front-facing and rear-facing cameras, true multi-tasking functionality, and the latest Google™ Mobile services on a 10.1-inch widescreen HD display.
T. Kugan, Vice-President of Product, Device and Innovation at Maxis said, “Maxis customers will be the first to enjoy the coveted Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi in Malaysia. User experience will definitely be enhanced by the fact that Maxis today has the widest and fastest 3G broadband footprint in Malaysia, enabling them to enjoy the features of the smart device on seamless high-speed mobile data networks.”
“Our customers may also choose to access relevant, reliable and secure local content that is aggregated on a single URL via MYLAUNCHPAD; or download locally-relevant Maxis apps such as Maxis Movies to easily buy tickets online, Maxis OneMusic for all their music needs and Maxis FINDER301, the only directory of its kind for easy mobile location of essential and wanted merchants. Maxis is focused on delighting our customers and enriching their lives with the latest, innovative devices and content to keep up with their ever-changing lifestyle needs and demands,” he added.
“Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi re-defines what the tablet experience should be,” said Robert van Tilburg, senior regional sales director for Motorola Mobility in South Asia. “Designed from the ground up with the user in mind, it provides more ways to have fun, connect with friends and stay productive while on the go. Whether surfing the Web, watching the latest hit movie as it was intended or video-chatting with friends, Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi will delight customers with its ease of use, speed and vivid graphics, as well as its Motorola Smart Accessories.”
Maxis customers will be the first to enjoy tablet and phone bundled packages with the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi. When they purchase the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi at a price of RM2,499, they stand to get the Motorola DEFY™ for free. This limited period offer will be valid only from May 6 until May 22. Customers will need to sign up for a 3GB x 24 month contract on the Motorola DEFY to power up Wi-Fi access, which may be shared with the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi. Motorola DEFY acts as a 3G mobile hotspot to connect up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices, so you turn practically anywhere into a hive of productivity.
Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi features – a new mobile experience
Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi delivers exceptionally fast performance with its 1 GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The tablet showcases the innovations of the Honeycomb user experience – including widgets, true multi-tasking, tabbed browsing, notifications and customization – on a 10.1-inch widescreen HD display with 1280X800 resolution enabling video content that’s richer and clearer than ever before. Support for HDMI enables viewing of videos and movies on larger screens, such as HD televisions. A 5 MP rear-facing camera captures HD video, and a 2 MP front-facing camera enables clear video chats using Google Talk™.
The latest Google Mobile services include Google Maps 5.0™ and access to Android Market™. Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi also supports a beta version of Adobe® Flash® Player 10.2 downloadable from Android Market, enabling the delivery of rich Flash-based web content including videos, games and rich Internet applications. The tablet also features a built-in gyroscope, barometer, e-compass, accelerometer and adaptive lighting. It supports up to 10 hours of video playback, and charges in half the time of competitive tablets on the market. Motorola XOOM has an SD card slot but this will not be supported at launch – a software upgrade will follow after launch to enable this feature.
