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.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
