thanks

I love my xoom 2 - perfect size for a tablet

My first XOOM tablet was great, marred only by the poor OS that was honeycomb, if this has at least made it to ICS its a goood deal. If the build quality is anytjing like the XOOM its a great deal, and the first one ran AOSP beautifully, this thing running ParanoidAndroid would be a grrat device for anyone willing to take a bit of time to get it installed (assuming its available). Else, you're better going for the N7 although slightly smaller. Heat from me.

Would people please put refurbished in the title of their deals for transparency.

I do have a Nexus 7, but going to give one of these a try for the screen size. That extra inch may make all the difference

Sky have said that due to contractual obligations they cannot put sky go on tablets with HDMI out.

its weird how this doesn't have a xda section so no mod support i guess

It says really clearly that Xoom and Xoom 2 are being kept in the same sub forum

Sorry but I have to mark this as cold. The tablet has been abandoned by Motorola so it'll never get an update to Jelly Bean. Also the locked-down bootloader means that there are no custom ROMs available either. If you are happy to run an older version of Android then go ahead and buy one but you would be much better off spending a little extra on a Nexus 7.

yh that's what I meant because it didn't get any support by the devs..

over 8 inches? one for the girls.........

Reasonable price. Not cutting edge but will do all the basics with no problem. Main thing is that it has quality components and good build quality. Hot from me.


A good unit, good build. Does not look like it is getting anymore update in terms of operating system (android), but never the less for 99% of users this unit will do what they need.

At under £100 this is a bargain

Got it from Tesco for £61. I've prefered it from my ipad as a media device and its also good size as in car device and it has gps that dosn't require data connection. Good sound but beware it looses use of one of the speakers after ICS update.

Hw u got for £61? from tesco

I found it disappointing, too laggy and some considerable light bleed on the unit I returned after a couple of days. Pluses were build quality and screen size which IMO is perfect.

It was reduced to clear with yellow label. I also bought motorola xoom 10" for £72.

I found it a bit laggy to until I've updated the system to 4.0.1 ICS.

Hi all - done some research into this tablet and apart from 1 speaker not working after upgrade to ICS its a brilliant build with no overlay UI. Good solid processor and should be able to keep up with most if not all games and apps for at least the next 12 - 18 months

Also, I did some searching and found a 5% off code that worked!

MORG5 - 5% off (79.13 ex. Delivery)


Enjoy!

Cold deal because of the slow processor.

When pc pro reviewed it, they wrote" the Xoom 2 Media Edition is pretty nippy. The dual-core, 1.2GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 is fine for most current games and apps, and it posted good performance scores in our tests too. In the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark, a score of 1,715 is right up with the best, as is 2,720 in the Android Quadrant benchmark".? Probably written 12 months or so ago but still worthy of note.


Actually, that review was written 15 months ago. Even in that out-of-date review, it only scored 4 stars out of 6 for performance. What would it score today?

Things have moved on now. By today's standards, the Xoom 2 Media Edition is slow even for a budget tablet.

Anyone bought from these guys? Read some stuff on here about people having their credit card details stolen via their site.

Come on, take into consideration cost here, don't compare latest technology to this tablet. Show me a 8" tablet that is "quicker" Mr Negative.

Just ordered one of these from Morgan...Its a very nice tablet and premium build quality. I have to 10.1 and love it.
More worrying is that credit card details have been stolen from there site. I wish I could cancel the order now but I really want the tablet so ill report back if it arrives as advertising and if i experience any card issues...

No point emailing them to cancel as they now have all my card details! FYI when i did the order the secure visa window also popped up asking for my additional security password above the usual info. I'm taking that as a positive as not many sites have that level of checks.. fingers crossed.

I don't think you were paying attention because i did take cost into consideration. I told you, the Xoom 2 is slow even for a budget tablet.

Hi, can anyone confirm if this has an SD card slot?

Shame out of stock, like the looks of these.

Tablet turned up...wasn't a media edition but the bigger and slightly more expensive 10.1 xoom 2. very good condition. although it isn't perfect, screen appears to have a stuck pixel. No card issues so far and delivery was quick and communications with morgan were fine. Although a little disappointed as i wanted the ME version which is what I ordered and also never had a tablet with screen issues before. Im guessing that is why this is so cheap as they are obviously not perfect condition. Frankly cant be bothered to send it back and all that hassle so I'll keep it but wont be ordering from Morgan again..Not sure how you confuse a xoom 2 with a xoom 2 me?..nice to get a xoom 2 for £90 though i guess.

For the record with people saying the xoom 2 is slow..it actually isn't at all..gets 1000+ on geekbench which is fine.
Its never going to be that quick if your comparing it to snapdragons but this tablet is from 2011 so adjust your expectations accordingly.

A typical budget tablet scores nearly twice as high as the Xoom 2 in antutu benchmark and that's not compared with snapdragons, so the Xoom 2 is slow even for a budget tablet.

You're being very vague, which typical tablet are you actually quoting?

Can anyone please have any advise I'm torn between this one for size and blackberry playbook. It's for my son whose 7, so mostly games, films, photos and reading, any advise please! Was going to go for a really cheap tablet , like forty pound,but don't want disappointment as birthday present so maybe a good compromise?...

My advice is to get neither.
