The Xoom 2 Media Edition has a lot going for it. It also has its share of failings, such as the sloppy handling issues, the lack of Android 4.0 update (for now, at least), the lack of memory upgrades, low battery life for a mobile device, and the fact...

The Motorola Xoom 2 is a great tablet. Its slightly quirky design doesn’t hamper its use, and it has plenty of oomph under the bonnet. Without memory expansion, it feels slightly hampered and for that reason, it has lost a mark, in our books....

This neater version of the Motorola Xoom 2 is actually our preferred model – it’s comfortable to hold and the display really impresses. It performs well and thanks to the fact that it can stream films and music from the web or a PC it certainly lives...
