Motorola XOOM Tablet Now Available From £250

You can now get the Motorola XOOM tablet from as little as £250 from Currys with a free £10 voucher; the tablet was the first model to come with Honeycomb and the 1GHz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC when it was launched at CES last year.

Despite being more than a year old the Motorola XOOM still provides with excellent value for money as long as you can forgive some of its shortcomings.

It features a 10.1-inch 1,280 by 800 pixels display, 1GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot (and the capability of doubling the onboard storage capacity to 64GB for around £15), Android 3.0 Honeycomb, WiFi, HDMI, USB and Bluetooth, a five megapixel rear camera and a two megapixel front facing one, GPS and an array of sensors.

Motorola says that the tablet will be able to play up to 10 hours video playback and charges in less than four hours. Its main weaknesses at this point are its weight (730g) and its thickness (12.9mm).

Note that the deal, ends on Monday and represents a near 50 per cent discount off the suggested retail price of £480. The only competition at this price is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 which costs £1 less and is slightly smaller.
