Looking for best price on the Motorola Xoom Android tablet?
Today over at Woot.com you can buy a refurbished Motorola Xoom 32GB WiFi for only349.99. Sure the Amazon Kindle Fire was revealed yesterday for $199.99, but they are two very different tablets. Which tablet should you buy? Well the Amazon tablet is running a forked and reskinned version of Android with it’s own App store. What does the Xoom tablet have vs the Kindle Fire?
- Front and back facing cameras. Google hangouts or video chatting are possible with the Xoom
- Google is releasing their Next Generation Android Dessert called Ice Cream Sandwich on Oct 11th. This will be among the first Android tablets to receive that upgrade. (Google Experience Device)
- NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. This matters for HD gaming and 1080P video handling. There aren’t as many killer games for Android yet as there are for the iPad but there are plenty of great looking gamesbuilt for the Tegra chipset, which the Amazon tablet won’t be able to run.
- 10.1 inches of Gorilla Glass. I dropped mine in the first week of ownership from atleast three feet onto concrete. It bounced up and out about two feet. The screen is unscathed and the only damage is a slight dent in the casing.
