The Motorola Xoom Tablet with 4G LTE
What can you do with the Motorola 10.1 Inch Xoom tablet? How about this for starters…
- Watch highlights from last night’s big game thanks to the Xoom’s support of Adobe Flash and super fast 4G LTE speeds
- Video Chat with friends and family using the dual camera’s on the Xoom
- Browse the web and read the latest news with the dual core processor and, large 10.1″ screen
- Use all the latest apps from the Android Market
- Find your way around town with Google Maps

Really what can’t you do with the Motorola Xoom? It is like carrying a thin, beautiful computer in one hand. Want all the juicy tech specs on the Xoom? Click here to read all the specs.
This Motorola Xoom has 4G LTE Support Built In
This is really cool – the Xoom we are giving away has 4G LTE support built in – with no contract required! Go to the Verizon store now and see what this exact Xoom, without a contract cost…yep – just about $700! If you win, you can decide to buy a month to month data plan with Verizon (starts at about $30). Of course, you can always use the built in WiFi to connect to your WiFi network and not buy any data plan. If it were me I would do a mix. If I was traveling for the month, I would buy a plan for that month, the rest of the time I would just use my free WiFi. Completely up to you with this no contract Motorola Xoom.
VTech Gift Basket – $300 Of Tech Coolness
According to a recent survey conducted by research firm Toluna in conjunction with VTech Communications, making a phone call is one of the best gifts you can give this holiday season. Nearly half of respondents said a phone call to catch up is the best present a distant friend or family member could give them during the holiday season. In fact, a phone call outpaced gifts under the tree, holiday cards and emails.
Clearly a VTech filled gift basket (over $300 value) would make a great gift this holiday season…for the right audience. Please watch this short video explaining the importance of the right gift basket for the right people…
In All Seriousness The VTech Basket is An Awesome Holiday Gift
We had some fun in the video with the VTech basket, but in all truth, any Mom or Dad would love to get this basket as a gift. The basket includes:
- Functional leather basket
- Beverage warmer
- $100 Staples gift card
- Desktop organizer
- VTech Multi-tasking phone system
- Fun holiday trimmings
This one of those tech gift baskets that would make the perfect gift, but once you see it, you will want to keep it for yourself!
