Spatial agent

One feature new to the Xoom 2 ME is something Motorola calls Adaptive Virtual Surround Sound, which is supposed to give a more cinematic audio experience. Surprisingly, this isn’t just marketing flannel. The sound pumped out by the ME actually does have a 2.1-ish spatial sensation to it with stereo effects exaggerated and loud bangs and booms seeming to come from the back rather than the sides of the tablet. There’s plenty of volume on tap too.

How much will all this reduced-size loveliness set you back? It's £330, which, while not overly cheap, isn’t excessively expensive either.

The perfect size and an ideal weight

Verdict

RH Recommended Medal

The combination of a small, tough and light body and a 8.2in 800 x 1280 screen results in a fine little tablet. The display is pin sharp for gaming, viewing video or images, while the shape and weight make it an excellent e-book reader. It may not be the most powerful Android device on the market but at this precise moment in time, it’s the tablet I’d buy. ®

The lighter and smaller version of Motorola’s Xoom 2 that makes more sense than its 10.1in big brother.
