Dixons cuts Ice Cream Sarnie ready Xoom to £225

Catch it if you can

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Cut-price 32GB Android tablet, anyone? Dixons is now pricing the 32GB Motorola Xoom at £249 - if you can find one.

And, according to readers, keying in the discount code 'Tablet 10' at the checkout will get you ten per cent off the sale price, taking the tablet down to £225.

Motorola Xoom at Dixons

The catch: word is getting out, and the cut-price tablet is selling out quickly. It's not available through Dixons' websites, but some folk are claiming it can be bought in shops.

Dixons has the Xoom down as an Android 3.0 Honeycomb device, though Motorola's own spec sheet lists it as Android 3.1.

Either way, Motorola has already posted the 3.2 update, and the company has begun pushing out the eagerly awaited Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update in the US. Hopefully, the UK release is not far behind.

The Dixons Xoom page has all the details, and you can read Reg Hardware's Xoom review here. ®
