Anyone sitsching from Xoom 2 ME to GN7?

Recommended Posts

I just wondered if there is someone out there who could give me some advice what to do.

We had this iBood offer for a Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition for 249 € (which is really cheap) and I ordered one. But now I'm not sure anymore which device to get, the Xoom or the Nexus 7. Therefore my question: Did anyone of you Nexus 7 users have a Xoom before and if why did you exchange it against the N7 and if are you happy with your decision.

Thanks a lot for helping me to find the right way.

I like the Hardware on the Xoom 2 Media Edition, it's a great size, I just don't really like Moto's software. Is ICS out for it yet? JB looks a long way off, if ever and AFAIK it's very locked down.

AFAIK ICS is available now (at least some owner reported about being able to update). And about the ability to root or even use an alternative ROM - there's not really anything to be found on the internet.

Doesn't sound great, unless you really really want a rear camera ;) ...its dual core 1.2Ghz, fixed 16gb non expandable, standard LCD rather than IPS, does have hdmi out though.

So the Nexus is better tech wise, plus its unlocked with a greater chance of long term support.

If it was cheaper than the 7, then might be tempting.
