This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

For those interested in a 10" tablet, this is a very good price with ICS and Jellybean confirmed, though no telling when!


Tablet Features:

Cameras - Hi-Quality front-and-rear facing cameras. There's a 2MP camera on the front, for better web conferencing, and a quality 5MP camera with digital zoom and an LED flash on the back. And with the full-function camcorder, you can capture HD video and play it back over HDMI.

Display - The Motorola XOOM display is larger (10.1 inches vs 9.7 inches) than the leading competitors, and offers a much higher resolution (1280x800 WXGA vs. 1024x768 XGA). Motorola XOOM significantly produces more visible content, with images that appear in sharper and crisper HD.

Flexibility - With Motorola XOOM you can open, edit, save and share various types of docs - in an instant. Check your e-mail. View your calendar. Set appointments. It's all is a secure, data encrypted environment. This is a tablet for work or play.

Operating System - Motorola XOOM runs off a powerful Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) a platform specifically designed and optimized for tablet computers. The large touchscreen display has a pinch-to-zoom navigation and radical holographic multi-finger user interface.

Processor - Motorola XOOM comes packed with a dual-core processor, which gives you more power and more speed than leading competitor tablets. The advanced performance translates to superior graphics, faster downloads and more consistent streaming media. It also allows you to run multiple apps with ease, on multiple tabs or windows.

Also has Micro USB/SD/HDMI

Cold.... Not an Ipad...







Sorry, I should not resort to the level of all the Apple cold voters.... Heat added
Nice tablet and being wifi only can have the US ROM applied for stock Android and very soon Jelly Bean is being rolled out for this if on US ROM plus one day you "should" get it from Motorola if you can wait that long....

Im already running ICS on my xoom and JB is expected next week.

Made a MASSIVE difference to the experience on the device with the new OS on, greatly reduced the lag I had on Honeycomb.
follow speedski link above. changes the tablet experience. no complaints with the xoom and even better once Gedified
Curious why some are voting this cold.
great deal, same price as a nexus 7 16GB, twice the storage, twice the screen size, still gets jellybean, microsd expansion and as a ged you get the same experience as the nexus!
Cold, the quadcore Nexus is coming to HMV soon for the same price
Head to XDA and you can put Jelly Bean on it now. Installed it a few days ago on my rooted Xoom
Great price for a great tablet. I love my XOOM, even on HC.
Indeed excellent tablet
This is an awesome deal, an absolute steal at this price. Had mine since last christmas and LOVE it. Espesially now it has jellybean.

Also, this is BETTER than the nexus 7, sdcard slot, 32gb, 10" screen you cant go wrong.

The processor is obviously a bit slower but it runs everything ive threw at it.

This is a bigger screen so really can't be compared to with the nexus
Great Price!
Anyone who purchases or has a XOOM, Amazon are selling the Speaker Dock for £31.99 from a 3rd party seller. I bought one, arrived in 3 days. You will need a US-UK adapter or cloverleaf cable.

I did this and now the SD card slot does not work. Don't know why.
Hmm tempted

I have a £10 giftcard but it's frustrating that the back of it says that it cannot be used online. Is this deal online only?

Do HMV do any student or NHS discount? As for quidco, lots of diff numbers are presented on the quidco site, but i'm not sure which one would appy to the sale of a tablet

Just wish there was some voucher or something that would bring the price of this down because i know i wouldn't use it enough to justify £200!
I have the Acer Iconia which i bought from Dabs last year when they had them on clearance for £230, they flew out the shop and went red hot on here its exactly the same as the Xoom the specs are identical to this and the Samsung galaxy Tab only it has a high res screen than the others. After i paid such a cheap price over the year if you compare it to this ive lost £30 which cant be bad ive had it rooted since day one and overclocked to 1.2ghz it will go upto 1.6ghz but its stable, its a great tablet but ive still ordered the Nexus and now im going to sell my Acer the only issue is that the Xoom being dropped is forcing my asking price down. Its a great price for the Xoom but i still think the Nexus is a better Tablet it just depends what you want, power or storage.

Have some heat
Hot Good deal!!!! Free delivery too :0)

Just ordered one for my 83 year old Mother. She insists she will be able to use it lol

Mind you, if she can't, then I'll have to give it a go.

Heat added.
What is ged?
The 10" chinese tablets are now faster, cheaper, lighter and have a better quality IPS screen than the Xoom. You're buying an inferior tablet when you buy the Xoom.

32GB expandable to 64GB, and yes.
Awesme tablet, we bought a US Wifi one last Xmas and it is a great bit of kit if you want to not follow the rest of the clones and go down the ipad route.

This should be very hot...

Great price for a great tablet. I have two in my household - they are superb. No other tablet can match them for battery power.

I've just ordered one for my dad's boat (along with all the usual android stuff with gps with marine charting software and you have a brilliant bit of kit)

The xoom is great, I got one in the Argos £250 deal, spec wise and price, go for the xoom over the qvc one, root it, install ICS and dont look back.

No, I would say that tablet is much worse tbh. For starters it's from a company i've never heard of, the memory is much less, there is no resolution stated for the screen- which probably means it's much lower than the xoom, the camera is worse, the screen is smaller, it won't qualify as a GED device like the xoom etc etc. So it's an easy win for the xoom between the two, no doubt
Dilema for me now.....do I order this knowing I cam get jellybean on it or do I pre order the nexus 7

I know a few lads who have bought these chinese tablets. very impressive they're.

$199 gives you around £127
add on VAT,thats £150 or so.say £160 with fees
little in the way of warrenty,decent build quality?
obviously its buyers choice
however i wouldnt say its a no brainer either way
guys how about the xoom 2 media 3g@ 249.99 at carphonewarehouse, is that any good ?
Does anyone think this is too heavy ? Is it fast enough ? And screen ?
