Motorola Xoom 2
Released November, 2011
The Pros:10 percent lighter, 33 percent thinner than the previous generation Xoom. Processor speed is much improved over the original Xoom. Nicely rounded off corners and slim bevel.
The Cons:High price point when you take a look at the direction of the market. Limited "tablet-centric" marketplace when you compare it to the iPad. No microSD slot and only 16GB of internal memory may not be enough for some users.
The Xoom 2 is a touchscreen tablet device from Motorola that functions as an upgraded version of the company's original zoom model and offers a step-up from the Xoom 2 Media Edition model. Running the Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system, this model features the same 10.1-inch LCD display with Gorilla Glass coating as it's older counterpart.
