Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition Tablet Now Available in UK

Motorola has released the Xoom 2 Media Edition tablet in the UK; which is available from a host of retailers for £329.99.

The company, which is on the verge of being acquired by Google, hopes that a smaller screen and $50 less than the original Xoom will make an impact on the market.

The device, available from retailers like Amazon, Expansys and Clove, has been designed to appeal to the younger generation of tablet users.

The Xoom 2 Media Edition features an 8.2 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800. The device is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB RAM. It also comes with a 1.3 MP front facing camera and 5MP rear camera.

The device also comes with MotoCast and sports a Gorilla Glass display, reports Tech Radar.

Tech Radar also revealed the device has similar features found in the original Xoom accept the smaller screen and the lack of 3D sound support in its speakers.

Google recently revealed that it plans to launch its own tablet device within the next six months. Motorola might be the one partnering with Google in its tablet venture, although this has yet to be confirmed.
