I have had the pleasure to play with my Motorola Xoom for a few weeks now. As a storm chaser and a tech enthusiast I am always looking for storm chasing technology. I believe that the Motorola Xoom could replace your aging laptop for storm chasing. I used my Xoom for 20hrs on a single charge as a wifi hotspot this would eliminate the need for a data card if you insist on using your laptop. There are several great weather radar apps for android. Including Storm Chaser Weather Radar and Pykl3 Radar. Currently there are not really any good tools for android for forecasting however Weather Geek Pro and the F5 App. Promise to change this in the coming weeks. I plan to chase at least once using nothing but my Motorola Droid Phone and my Motorola Xoom Tablet. I will let everybody know how that turns out so stay tuned.
Below is a quick look at a alpha version of Pykl3 Running on a Motorola Xoom.
