Motorola has introduced the first Android 3.0 tablet, built on the updated version of Android that is specifically geared for tablets. It retails for $799 without a cellular contract.

The hardware is impressive: a 1GHz, NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU with a huge 1GB of DDR2 RAM, and 32GB of internal storage.  The screen is slightly larger and has a higher resolution than the iPad with a 10.1-inch, 1280 x 800 capacitive display.  Also included is 3G connectivit, along with 5 megapixel front and rear facing cameras, HD video capability, and 811/g/n wireless.

In short, it is an impressive unit.

The downside is that it is expensive with only a $799 price for its 3G release.  With a contract from Verizon, the price drops to about $599.

Battery life is excellent at 10 hours of active use.  (In tests so far, I’ve seen 8.5 hours, which is still very good).
