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 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...

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

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 DROID XYBOARD 10.1

 

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 is Verizon's version of the XOOM 2 tablet. It comes with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 pixels touchscreen, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel camera on the front, LTE and EV-DO Rev.A...

Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape

Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

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...

Motorola Xoom 2 Review

 

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 Review: Android Market (part 2)

 

The Motorola Xoom is the first Android tablet to seriously challenge the iPad. The hardware is pretty solid, but what about the apps? Unfortunately, there just isn't much to talk about since there are only 16 Android apps available in the Android...

Yes, Angry Birds is present, but that’s only going to carry the Android Market so far.

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 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...
