Xoom 2 – Advantages over Motorola Xoom 1
Motocast ,a technology and app available with Xoom 2 that helps you to connect a PC or Mac for music,video or any multimedia content .
Motorola Xoom 2 is little bit faster ,and slimmer(weighs 599g ) than the Xoom 1,generally most of the other specs are same between this two devices .
Even the operating system of Motorola Xoom 2 is not the new Android version-Ice Cream Sandwich ,nothing much new for the xoom users .
Apple iPad is cheaper (almost 300+ USD while Xoom 2 is around 700 USD)and still ruling the Tablet market . As a owner of Xoom Tablet 1 ,I am not much convinced to live with a tablet ,and not feel like blessed . Hope Apple iPad does more .
Price of the Xoom 2
It is offered high as 720 USD at the moment ,and expected to drop soon to USD 600 .
Early Verdict of Motorola Xoom 2
As we see the market penetration of Xoom1 for the last one year not sufficient ,the Xoom 2 cannot do much against the rivals as the winning key is applications (and going more lighter and thinner ) I used to feel tired holding my Xoom due to the weight . Just a ten percent reduced weight of Xoom 2 (from Original) will not help much for the pain of holding I guess ! What do you say ?
