With the Nexus 7 costing £159 with £15 of app credit, I don't think this is a great deal.

well it is a benchmark, first "branded" device with decent spec, and low cost. all devices when considering a deal should be compared to it ;)

Doesn't come up in the search strangely, you have to find it through the iPad & Tablets up the top.

Same here, Heard it was going to get ICS and now people are saying it's going to get Jelly bean. Are these just rumors or is there some solid source with this info. I really want one but not if it's stuck on Honeycomb.

Anything is better than the Archos! lol. This has a Good Spec with a good price. This tablet is RRP over £199 elsewhere! My brother bought one, and if this is a good Tab, I may get one too!

Please don't even mention the archos tablet, its beyond terrible, cant believe i paid 150 for it, was relieved to sell it to a friend for 100 (and i did warn him how terrible it was) who has now thrown it in his loft.

Even better, every XOOM™2 comes with a £10 voucher to go towards your favourite magazines online at Zinio, including T3, Stuff and Marie Claire.

It does? I got mine delivered today and can't see any £10 voucher.

I ordered Monday, they charged £184.99 though order said £149. I had to call and get a refund for the £35.99, which will be done within 2 weeks. Now it's back to £149 !!!

Complete entertainment on the go.

For practical entertainment inside and out, the XOOM™ 2 Media Edition has a lot to offer. 1080p HD recording through the high quality 5MP camera is great, and with full 1080p HD video support, you can enjoy your favourite films wherever you are. The 3D virtual surround sound will adjust automatically for when you're in landscape or portrait. Plus, there's a handy webcam for easy video calling. Even better, every XOOM™ 2 comes with a £10 voucher to go towards your favourite magazines online at Zinio, including T3, Stuff and Marie Claire.

Check the section on the Carphonewarehouse site, otherwise whilst your getting your refund enquire about the £10 voucher! Every little helps!

I took the one I ordered last week back. Unfortunately it had pretty bad light bleed in places, the colours were inaccurate (shown most obviously on browsing and in video playback) and the Motocast software is frankly a bit of a dog.

Didn't work out for me but might be still a good deal for someone else.

Very similar specs, although I would say the PB has better build quality. Essentially comes down to

Apps vs Storage space

If movies, Mp3s and browsing internet are main use get the PB

If having a huge selection of games and apps are more important, get this.

Why is that then?

Archos - 10", expandable memory, same price, latest version of android, has all the features this one has, and was RRP 299 on CPW last week.

So is Archos definitely inferior?

My concern over this is getting files to and from the device with my macbook

I had a nexus 7 for 4 days... and sent it back. The screen flickers really badly in low light levels. I wouldn't recommend anyone buying it till asus sort it out. Think im going to give this one a go now and hope its better than the nexus.I dont care about Jelly Bean, prefer ICS which I have on my phone tbh so will be happy if this one gets updated to that.
#34
If you can, try and get to a CPW store and look at both models. The Archos tab displays (all models I've seen) always appear washed out. The Xoom, like the Nexus & Samsung, have way brighter screens.
#35
nexus screen flicker was fixed the day it come out with an update

No GPS which is a must with a tablet pc...

excellent, fab to know

Please can you help me as you seem to know, can you let me know how i can get HDMI out to work on the nexus? this is really handy for travelling as i can have my movie collection playing on the big screen,

I will be honest the xoom 2 has cut a number of plusses from the xoom 1 however it still has a few aces up its sleeve over the nexus, on top of hdmi - genuinely a massive thing for me, also it has a bigger screen

Many thanks

Mike
