Motorola XOOM 10.1 tablet now down to £250

Argos is selling the original Motorola XOOM, which was unveiled at CES last year, for a mere £250. This is the 32GB model which had an original selling price of £480.

The tablet rivals the Apple iPad 2 which costs £329 and comes with half the memory and half the onboard storage. The XOOM was the first tablet to offer Android 3.0 Honeycomb and is upgradable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

There's also 1GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 pixels capacitive display, a rear 5-megapixel camera and a front facing 2-megapixel one, a microSD card slot and the possibility to plug in a mumber of peripheral like a HD dock but no laptop dock like for the Motorola Atrix.

It is 13mm thick, weighs 730g, features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB and microHDMI, HD video recording and has up to 10 hours battery life. The fact that you can add another £18 to double the amount of onboard storage means that the XOOM is still a very decent tablet.
