Motorola is snapping up the word "XOOM" as a trademark in many countries around the world, including the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Taiwan, Australia and others. The trademark description they are applying for is "Mobile computers and related accessories...", which sounds suspiciously like their iPad competitor the Android Honeycomb Tablet which we shared a cool video about recently here. Obviously the trademark could end up being for something completely unrelated, but the logic is sound that it is for this. Regardless, whatever XOOM turns out to be, it obviously is set to be a major theme from Motorola, and will be interesting to follow when it is released.
Update: Status is now confirmed, and we've got our own Motorola Tablet Forum and Motorola Xoom Forum setup.
