Motorola Xoom 2 hands on review
Motorola Xoom 2 – design and build
If you took one look at our Motorola RAZR hands-on review and wished it came in a tablet edition, consider your wish granted. Twice. This is the larger of Motorola’s second-gen Xoom tablets, the Xoom 2. Taking its sharp-edged design cues from said phone, it adds the 10.1in Gorilla Glass screen first seen on the original Honeycomb Xoom and loses a few pounds. And thank God for that – our wrists never forgave us for making them hold the Xoom Mk I for prolonged periods.
There’s a pleasantly tactile feel to the sides, though the power button and volume rocker are slightly difficult to feel out on first use. Perhaps that’ll improve over time, but as we had mere minutes to find our way around Motorola’s new tablet, the verdict on the Xoom 2’s buttonry will have to stay out until our full review.
