Motorola XOOM 2 HD tablet down to £200

PC World has cut the price of the Motorola XOOM 2 HD tablet down to £200 including delivery, a significant discount off its suggested retail price.

The tablet is a steal if you’re after a large screen device with plenty of oomph and legroom. The XOOM 2 HD comes with a spacious 10.1in tablet with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels, a dual-core TI OMAP4430 system-on-chip clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage (but no card slot), a 5-megapixel rear camera, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera, a 6,000mAh battery, Wi-Fi, DLNA capabilities, a 8.9mm thickness and a weight of less than 600g.

The Motorola XOOM 2 HD runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb with an upgrade path to ICS. It is roughly £45 more expensive than its little brother, the Motorola XOOM 2 Media Edition, which has almost exactly the same specifications bar a smaller screen and a smaller battery.

If you're not particularly sold on its bigger screen size and rear camera, then it might actually be a better choice to opt for the smaller XOOM 2 tablet or grab the Google Nexus 7 which comes with 4.1 Jelly Bean and a quad-core system-on-chip for the same price.
