Submission + - Motorola's Xoom Tablet Has A Built-In Barometer! (gadgetizor.com)

dkd903 writes: Sensors like accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, proximity sensors etc. are nowadays common in smartphones. But not barometer – in fact, Xoom is the first phone or tablet to have a built-in barometer.

Talking about barometer support in Android, Honeycomb is not the first Android to support it. Google added support support for barometer sensors in Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It would not surprise me if Google decides to use this feature to crowd source weather prediction in the future.
