People are seriously still buying these first generation Honeycomb tablets?
Guys, the Xoom was released in February of 2011. It is now exactly 2 years old.
For 80-100 dollars? Maybe. For $199? Not to insult anyone's intelligence, but you would have to be a pretty uninformed buyer to even consider this. That is a terrible price and a huge rip-off.
You can look up reviews all you want, and find good ones, sure. The Xoom was good when it came out...2 whole years ago. It will not get any more Android updates (Google/Moto have said as much) and is not on the newest version on Jellybean (4.2). It has 4.1.2, and that's all it will ever get. You might say, "Even so, it still has Jellybean!". Yes, however, the device is so old that it does NOT give you 100 percent of the benefits of 4.1+
The Tegra 2 is an ancient chip that was never all it was cracked up to be in the first place. It's terrible at video decode and even worse at web browsing performance. The only thing it did well, at the time, was Tegra exclusive games, which is irrelevant right now because almost all of the games made for Tegra require the Tegra 3 platform, and Tegra 4 is two months away.
Please, if you're even thinking of this, get the Nexus 7, NEW, for $199. Yes, it's a 7 inch tablet opposed to a 10 inch tablet. However, it has the same exact screen resolution, making the PPI much much better. It also has a Tegra 3, is much lighter, battery lasts a very long time, is the number one supported Android tablet by developers, and since it is so new and a Nexus device, will receive Android updates direct from Google for the foreseeable future (the next 12-18 months).
Do not buy this. Not at all. You will get it, use it for a couple of weeks, download newer apps that require more resources, and it won't be able to do what you want it to do.
The Nexus 7 is LIGHT YEARS ahead of this thing, for the same price, and you get it new. I CANNOT stress this enough.
