Motorola Xoom 2 hands on review
Motorola Xoom 2 – hi-def screen
The original Xoom – the first Honeycomb tablet – had a lovely hi-def screen and Motorola says the Xoom 2’s is brighter and more vibrant. Perhaps it is, but we’ve been spoiled by so much eye-burstingly brilliant screen tech over the past year it didn’t make a striking impression. There’s nothing wrong with it – but don’t expect to coo.
Motorola has also blessed the Xoom 2 with the Splash-guard coating we saw on the new RAZR, so the entire device is water repellent, inside and out. That doesn’t mean you can take it diving, but certainly you could use it poolside without worrying. It’s very shiny, though, so unless you like sunbathing in overcast weather, don’t expect to be able to see much.
