Motorola XOOM WiFi Tablet Down To £254

If you don't mind getting a refurbished tablet with full manufacturer's warranty, then check this deal from Argos' Ebay outlet which sells the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi for a mere £254.

That's a cracking price given what you get for the money. The XOOM was the first dual core tablet with Honeycomb when it was launched back in January 2011 at CES in Las Vegas.

It comes with a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot (potentially pushing the onboard storage capacity to 64GB), a 10.1-inch 1,280 by 800 pixels capacitive display, Android 3.1 Honeycomb, MicroUSB and HDMI connections, a five-megapixel camera with HD video recording, a front facing two megapixel one, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and up to 10 hours battery life.

It is not the thinnest or the lightest tablets on the market but remains one of the nicest given that you do get a wider array of accessories (like docking stations).

The arrival of the new iPad coupled with Apple's decision to slash the price of the iPad 2 to £329 means that Android tablet manufacturers are having to clear out existing models with a big discount (more than 50 per cent in some cases).
