Motorola Droid Xoom is the Android Honeycomb-powered tablet launching at CES next week

Motorola’s upcoming tablet powered by Google’s tablet-ready Android Honeycomb OS finally has an official name, according to Droid-Life. Their sources claim that Droid Xoom will be what Motorola will call the tablet that Andy Rubin has showcased, and that has received a very cool teaser video last week.

As the aforementioned video confirms, the tablet will be unveiled sometime during CES 2011, that starts next week in Las Vegas.

An interesting fact is that although the Xoom will launch on Verizon, it will not support LTE, their flavor of ‘4G’. It may, however, come with a USB slot that will accept an LTE modem, but nothing’s sure at this point.

Anyway, we’re about a week away from receiving all the details on this device, even less if they start leaking like crazy. So we’ll know everything there is to know soon enough. 2011 is clearly shaping up to be the year of (Android) tablets, and with CES in early January, the year will be off to a nice start.
