Reviews for the Motorola Xoom WiFi/UMTS

87% Review Motorola Xoom WiFi/UMTS Tablet/MID | Notebookcheck
ZOOM ZOOM.The first 10.1" Motorola tablet goes by the name XOOM. Nothing could possibly go wrong, one would think. If Motorola applies their know-how from smart phones, touch interfaces and the Android operating system in the Xoom Tablet correctly, the Xoom should be one of the best sellers in summer 2011.

67% Motorola Xoom reviewed: the good and the bad
Source: PC Authority English
Despite these gripes, we like the Motorola Xoom. It’s well made, the hardware is powerful and battery life is good. Before you rush out and buy one, though, we’d urge you to pause and consider a couple of things. First, the price is a little high. In numerous areas – the screen, the apps and the slick performance – this tablet lags behind the iPad 2, yet it costs exactly the same amount. Second, for all that’s good about the Xoom, it isn’t the only Android 3-enabled tablet around. Asus’ 16GB Transformer (see p48), for example, is cheaper, boasts a better screen and is slightly slicker in use. For those reasons, even if you’re desperate to buy an Android tablet, we’d advise you to hold onto your cash for the time being and see what the next few months bring. The Motorola Xoom ups the ante, without a doubt, but it isn’t everything that we’d been wishing for.

The Xoom is a fast and capable Android tablet but a few annoying issues and a high price tag stifle its appeal.

This leaves a couple other strictly Wi-Fi, Honeycomb tablet options. The Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 (3.5 stars) is cheaper no matter which model you get, the 16GB ($399) or the 32GB ($499). It also has a great keyboard-with-trackpad dock accessory that snaps on and folds the tablet into a makeshift netbook, though it costs $149 extra. The Acer Iconia Tab A500 ($449, 3.5 stars) is quite similar to the Xoom in many regards, but its $450 price tag only gets you 16GB—but if that's all you need, it's obviously a better deal. For a deeper dive, read our Motorola Xoom review, which discusses the tablet in greater detail. Everything you need to know about design, performance, the OS, and apps is there.

70% Motorola Xoom (Verizon Wireless)
Source: PC Mag English
The Motorola Xoom lacked key features out of the gate, but it has slowly addressed the majority of them, aside from the non-working microSD slot. The Xoom is beautiful, with an intuitive and customizable (though slightly redundant and cluttered) user interface, excellent screen quality, and some very useful apps and features, like Talk and the dual cameras with a built-in flash. Whether the Android Market will catch up to Honeycomb, however, remains to be seen. The Xoom lacks the app selection and overall grace that makes the iPad 2 the best tablet currently available. Furthermore, there are other Honeycomb tablets that offer more features, like the 3D-enhanced T-Mobile G-Slate with Google (by LG) ($629, 3.5 stars), or cost less, like the Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 ($449, 3.5 stars). After being first out of the gate, the Motorola Xoom has plenty of competition, and while it is a quality device, it does little to differentiate itself.

Overall, the Xoom is a pretty solid tablet, however, the size and weight are more than what I personally prefer- other people I showed the tablet do didn’t mind that at all. I would recommend that you go play with one at your nearby Axiom store to get a feel of it. Priced at AED 2699, the Motorola Xoom is definitely a decent competitor to the iPad- especially for a geek that likes to tweak their system.

Luckily the Xoom's own cameras capture reasonably good-looking footage. Clips look much crisper and sharper than the iPad's miserable little cameras, which admittedly isn't difficult. Footage captured in low-light conditions is quite grainy and the dual LED flash only helps so much. You'd still get better looking results from a recent HD Flip camera, but it'd good enough in a pinch even if using a tablet as a camera feels very conspicuous.

Despite the weight, despite the price, despite everything, the Motorola Xoom has the power to move me. It feels so solid and performs so reliably that I increasingly find myself using it in preference to my iPad 2 whenever Apple compatibility is not an issue. The problem is that it’s an intellectual love affair. While I adore my iPad, I admire and respect my Xoom.
