Motorola Xoom 2 Test

Slim, handy, good display: the Motorola Xoom is 2 the best Android Tablet and a real alternative for all iPad holdouts.

Of course, it must be not getting an iPad. iTunes and app-store compulsion, abstinence from Flash and vehement refraining from memory are comprehensible reasons against the Tablet pioneer from Cupertino. Who wants to drag movies, music, and documents easily with drag and drop on his mobile computer, install applications from various sources, look at every Web page, and use micro-SD cards, the moves with an Android Tablet on the right rail.

Since honeycomb, the version of Google’s operating system, optimized specifically for tablets, Android flat computers are also in terms of ease of use and handling on a very good path. The new Motorola Xoom 2, which supplied a peak performance in the editorial and lab test is considered to be one of the currently most powerful iPad Challenger.

Interfaces en mass

The second Motorola Tablet resembles the shape and a design factor from his cousin, the current Smartphone top model Motorola RAZR – same slim line, same beveled corners. I like through his Very nice look and feel, with a high-quality aluminum back and subtly rubberized plastic elements on the pages.

The latter give the Tablet grip so that it is always safe in hands. Its weight of nearly 600 grams is also pleasingly low, and the 10-inch model also indefinitely is not to burden the poor. What notorious Tollpatsche will be pleased: thanks to a water repellent coating the Tablet not just stretches the weapons if it is even covered with coffee or Cola.

At the front, a small camera for video chat is integrated; the lens on the back shoot photos with 5 megapixels and videos in HD. The pictures are neat, real digicams will not replace but also the tablets.

Practical: Images and videos can consider themselves directly and without detours on a compatible TV via the HDMI interface integrated in the housing. Otherwise the local data exchange between Tablet and PC via Microusb occurs. But also quite simply wireless, multimedia files can be pre-installed Motocast app from a computer connected to the Internet to the Tablet stream.

Tucked safely behind a removable rubber cap, are the slots for the micro-SIM and micro-SD card. Thus, it is clear: the Xoom 2 has a radio interface and can even Wi-Fi via UMTS or GSM in the Internet.

Bright sunshine will worsen the Surfvergüngen outdoors however, the display is still quite strong. The contrast in closed rooms are very good, the viewing angle stability is, however, rather average. And also the determined persistence of about five and a half hours is comparatively surrounded – the iPad 3 comes on a run time of approximately eight and a half hours about.

Android 4.0 in the starting blocks

As a special feature, Motorola has installed an infrared interface with compatible TVs operate. The associated app “Dijit” is there for free in the Android market, which was now renamed “Google Play Store”.

In the delivery State, the Xoom Android 3.22 comes, the rollout of version 4.0 is to start before the summer. But also about a stylish note app, organization and Office tools and Amazon Kindle for E-books is taken away much in terms of software from the start.

Another plus is the positive user experience: The Tablet immediately takes all input, unerringly translates it and works very fluidly and quickly. In combination with the handy format and the overall good display and stamina values, the Xoom 2 earned the title of best Android tablets. In bulk it will not sell themselves anyway: the price of 630 euros will significantly undercut on the Web, a bargain the Xoom but isn’t.
