Motorola Xoom vs Apple iPad 2 : A Comparison

By | March 3rd, 2011



Motorola released its much anticipated Xoom tablet just weeks before the Apple’s new iPad 2 tablet. Both of the devices feature the next generation of hardware and software and currently represent the best devices available in the market. We’ve made a small comparison that scales the specifications of the devices against each other helping you decide the tablet of your choice.

    Perhaps this is the reason why Motorola is cannot beat iPad 2 high price and inferior features as compare to Apple iPad 2.

    When it comes to its exterior aspects I still go to Apple iPad 2 for the reason that it is still very handy and the slim totality of the exterior enhances its beauty compare to others. About the features in it I haven’t seen motorola xoom however, I am really pleased by Apple. Let’s see when I see Motorola soon.

    Comparing Motorola Xoom vs Apple iPad could make some Apple fans a
    little jealous as the Xoom wins by far. Of course, Apple will likely
    release a more advanced iPad once Xoom makes its debut. Until that day,
    one might consider the Xoom over the iPad if they want a more powerful
    media tablet to stay entertained on the move.

    The Xoom’s quality is also diminished by some of the early technical issues and limitations that we encountered in Honeycomb.

    At first I really thought that Motorola xoom would be a hefty competitor of ipad2, well I was wrong. The Motorola Xoom sure do have a good specification but still iPad 2 has more interesting specs and features to offer to it’s users.

    We loved the browsing experience on the Xoom. The included app is (as we
    said) far more like a desktop version of Chrome, and if you’re already
    using the software on your laptop or desktop, you’ll feel right at home.
    Pages displayed quickly and cleanly on the tablet, though we have to
    admit that we’re more than a little miffed that Flash support isn’t
    present out of the box with the Xoom. Strange considering this is one of
    the real advantages Android devices have over Apple’s offerings.

    I think this is a healthy comparison. Because mobile user may easily identify which one is best as well as the good and bad thing in each one.

    Nice post. After reading the complete post my opinion is that Apple ipad is the bestest product among all gadgets. So no one can beat it.

    No doubts, it seems that Motorolla having better features as compare to iPad 2, but there are so many comparable devices like iPad 2, Apple never worry about this because its having so many Apple lover peoples. More, now its time to new generation of iPad 3 with having “Retina Display” feature which is incomparable and unbeatable from others.

    The
    most important thing to remember about this comparison is that 2 out of
    4 of these product are not even released yet. This article should have
    only covered iPad2, zoom and Galaxy. All other products are irrelevant until I can buy the best..
