Dixons drops Motorola Xoom price... again
Retailer blinks first, before punters
Dixons has knocked the price of the 32GB Motorola Xoom tablet to £329 - not at all bad when you consider the fondleslab was priced at £500 at launch.
And the other 32GB Xoom, the one with 3G connectivity as well as Wi-Fi, is now just £400, down from £580.
Both versions run Android 3.0 Honeycomb - though Android 3.1 is now available to download as an update - on a 10.1in, 1280 x 800 touchscreen. The whole thing runs on an Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU.
In the middle of August, Dixons lowered the Wi-Fi only price to £400. Clearly, that wasn't enough to pull in the punters, and it feels it has to drop the price even further. Will it tempt you?
...then we'll talk.
Otherwise All tablets are too overpriced for my tastes. If I have over £300 to spend them I'm buying a laptop.
Yes I still call them laptops, big whoop, wanna fight about it?
It just means the tech savvy peeps are clever enough to wait for a tablet that is not astronomically overpriced.
Mines the one with the Archos G9 in the pocket.
tablet on a stag weekend
Sounds like a wild weekend
It still needs another £150 off.
PC whirled, for example, have a SAMSUNG NP-NC110 for £249. And that has a 250G hard disk and a keyboard. And 11 hour battery life. And it's purple.
Re: Does it blend?
Tablets vs netbooks? For me, the tablet is a fraction of the bulk, at lot less weight and displays comics and books it portrait mode perfectly.
This is why I sold my netbook.
HDMI, USB etc? Don't need 'em - got 'em on my laptop. Physical keyboard ditto. But I'd rather pull out my tablet on a plane or on the sofa for a quick read/surf/email than the notebook. Or the netbook.
