Long before the Nexus 7, Google had an Android tablet to call its own in the form of the Motorola Xoom. Despite the impressive specs, the 10.1-inch tablet was riddled with many issues, no thanks to a rather buggy performance of Android 3.0 Honeycomb in its early incarnation. But it was the steep price point of the Xoom that ultimately sealed its fate, and how it turned off a lot of buyers.
If $700 seemed a bit excessive for the Motorola Xoom, would you consider snatching the 3G tablet for $200? That’s the offer that Daily Steals has for the Xoom right now on its website. Granted, it’s a refurbished model, but the slate has been “Factory recertified” and it does come with a 90-day warranty.
With its 10.1-inch HD display, dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, HDMI out, the Xoom can still compete with the current crop of Android tablets. And depending on how generous Verizon is feeling, an OS update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is only just a matter of time, given that the WiFi model has already gotten its jelly for a while now.
Head to Daily Steals now to grab one of these bad boys before the deal runs out. No Verizon contract is required.
