Xoom vs. Ipad 2, the battle takes a light-hearted twist
Motorola has made a timely attack on the launch of the iPad 2 stating consumers looking to snap up the latest great tablet release forgo the Apple queues and "head out for a pint and pre-order the Motorola Xoom online instead.”
With much of the gadget world, and national press, looking to Apple and tomorrow’s global rollout of the second-generation iPad tablet, Motorola has offered some light-hearted advice to those looking to spend the night queuing for the in-demand device.
With the recent spate of sun tempting Motorola in to action the Xoom manufacturer announced: “Not keen to waste the finest weather we've had in ages waiting in a queue? Idea of surviving overnight on mundane take-away with some frankly questionable queue buddies leave you cold? Fear not friends, ditch the winter coat, head out for a pint and pre-order your Motorola Xoom online instead!"
Apple officially announced earlier this week that the iPad 2 will be available to purchase from 5pm on Friday, March 25th leaving those already queuing for the device, such as the first in the queue at Apple’s flagship London Regent Street store, Jewels Lewis, with an agonising day of trading to endure before finally getting their hands on the iPad 2.
