Review Motorola Xoom 2 MZ607 Tablet/MID

 

Flat multimedia tablet. The Xoom 2 Media Edition is very compact.

Handy and lightweight; Bright screen; High viewing angle stability; Good workmanship

Less power than its predecessor; High price; Tight internal memory

Motorola's little tablet competes against its big brother, Xoom 2, as well as contenders from other manufacturers.

Review Motorola Xoom 2 MZ616 Tablet/MID

 

Elegant Evolution. The successor to the Xoom is here: the Xoom 2.

Bright display; Great viewing angles; Light; Fast WLAN and 3G

Keys "feel" bad; Average battery life; Modest camera quality

The competition in the tablet segment is high: Apple's iPads as well as other Android tablets, such as, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 or the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Motorola Xoom 2 review

 

It was 10 months ago, during the Super Bowl, that Motorola announced the original Xoom to the world. In a 60-second ad that spared no expense, Google and Motorola united to show us their bold new vision for tablets; Honeycomb was going to revolutionize...

Significantly thinner and lighter than predecessor ; IPS display is a strength ; Camera produces very respectable stills ; MotoCast works as advertised

Sluggish performance ; No storage expansion options ; Priced too close to the iPad 2 ; Won't fulfill its potential until Android 4 upgrade

Motorola might have done us all a favor by just waiting until Android 4 was ready to ship

Motorola Xoom 2 review

 

Motorola's Xoom 2 arrives at a point where Apple's iPad (first- or second-generation...) still dominates the tablet market. The original Xoom was the

Lighter and slimmer than its predecessor ; Splashproof coating ; (Almost) undiluted Android experience ; Built-in IR emitter

Only 16GB of storage: lacks expansion option ; Fingerprint-magnet

The Motorola Xoom 2 improves on the original in almost every way. However, it's no longer the only Honeycomb tablet out there, and pricing seems far too optimistic.

Motorola XOOM 2 Tablet Review

 

A capable tablet that is held back by aging software.

better than original Xoom, can function as an entry-level business tablet, decent screen size and quality

no storage expansion, older OS makes for sluggish performance, camera is slow

The front of the Xoom 2 is fairly ordinary, with a thick black bezel going around the Gorilla Glass display. There’s a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera as well as a tiny LED indicator for notifications. Overall, the Xoom 2 is a marked improvement from...

The original Motorola Xoom is the closest device to an actual Nexus Tablet. Being a Google experience device it's backed by Google but manufactured by

Speedy performance ; Fairly close to stock Honeycomb ; Splash proof ; Sturdy yet thin design ; Notification light ; IR Blaster with Universal remote control software ; QuickOffice HD (with editing) included for free ; Motocast works beautifully as...

Not compatible with Tegra games ; No microSD support/Limited to 16GB ; No Floating Notes on Media Edition ; Slow to get updates/Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) ; Long startup time

The Xoom 2 is a much improved version of the original version: 10% lighter, 33% thinner and has a much brighter IPS display with a wider 178 degree viewing angle. There are some nifty new extras thrown in like an IR port, splashguard coating and an...

Motorola Xoom 2 (3G) - A Successor That's Too Late

 

The successor to the first Xoom, the new Motorola Xoom 2 (3G) comes in a lighter and thinner package with enhanced features such as a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a splash guard coating and special flattened edges for easier handling. While it seems to...

Motorola XOOM 2

 

The Motorola Xoom 2 is expected to be the successor to the Xoom, the first Honeycomb tablet. It's rumored to come with an equally sized 10.1-inch screen, but its main highlight seems to be support for LTE and Adobe Flash 11. Under the hood, there's a...

Motorola Xoom 2 Review

 

With the original Xoom failing to make a dent in Apple's dominant share of the tablet market Motorola is back with the Xoom 2

Improved aesthetics ; Slightly lighter ; Good web browsing

Lack of Android ICS ; Sluggish screen rotation ; Audio port issues

More of a spruce than the dramatic overhaul needed to bring the Xoom in line with the market leader, the Motorola Xoom 2 is a strong performer across most areas but in no way sets the world, or user experience, on fire.

Motorola Xoom 2 Android tablet

 

Motorola Xoom 2 review: The Xoom 2 is an improvement over the original Xoom, but these improvements aren't enough to justify its expensive price tag

Excellent build quality ; Motocast software ; Unique looking design

Outdated Android software ; Sluggish performance ; Expensive

The Xoom 2 has an extremely tough fight on its hands to remain relevant in an increasingly crowded market. Motorola has made it thinner, lighter and faster than the original Xoom, but it is running outdated Android software and has sluggish...
