How To Set Up a VPN for Motorola Xoom


VPN for Motorola Xoom


About the Motorola Xoom:

Introduced in 2011, Motorola Xoom was the first tablet to have Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS. The latest Motorola Xoom tablet models are known to have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. The Motorola Xoom has a 10.1” HD widescreen display, a powerful dual core processor and 1GB RAM. The tablet has 32GB in-built storage space that can be expanded to 62 GB. The user interface of Motorola Xoom allows the user to have 6 home screens, each Homescreen having your favorite app shortcut for easy access. The tablet features two cameras; 5MP rear facing camera and 2MP webcam at the front.


Choosing a VPN

PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN are main VPN protocols available to SmartPhone users. Connections to these types of VPNs are available for download at a variety of VPN services. There are few similarities between these three protocols. A head to head comparison can give you a clear idea about these VPN protocols and help you make the right choice.

PPTP  has inbuilt support for higher number of operating system and mobile devices while OpenVPN is compatible with few operating system platforms and mobile devices. L2TP on the other hand has inbuilt support for higher number of operating system platform than OpenVPN.

OpenVPN protocol is more secure than PPTP and L2TP.  PPTP is easy to setup while L2TP needs custom configuration. OpenVPN is also easy to setup. PPTP is quite fast as it has lowest encryption. OpenVPN also offers good speed despite highest encryption. OpenVPN is generally a preferred choice due to security features, but setting one up on mobile devices can be difficult for an average user.

PPTP is generally the preferred choice for people wanting a fast VPN connection and easy setup. L2TP can provide additional security features with a similar easy setup for mobile devices. My recommendation is to choose either PPTP for speed, or L2TP for security.
