Moto's 8.2-inch Android tablet to hits the UK with a £329.99 price tag

Motorola has officially released the Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition with the 8.2-inch Android tablet landing with a price tag north of the £300 marker

Following the recent Motorola Xoom 2 release Moto is back with its undersized tablet offering as the Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition is officially made available within the UK.

Taking on the likes of the Apple iPad 2, Motorola’s newly launched 8.2-inch device will go head-to-head with Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab 7.7 Android offering in the UK with the device handed a price tag that tops the £300 marker.

Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition Price

Set to land just £50 cheaper than its larger sibling and £70 cheaper than the lowest specced but highly coveted Apple iPad 2, the Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition UK price has been set at £329.99.

With the 7-inch Android powered Amazon Kindle Fire hitting the UK in recent weeks with a minimalist $199 (£124) price tag and a UK arrival expected to follow in the coming months, Motorola’s scaled down tablet device could face stiff competition.

Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition Specs

Disappointingly forgoing the recently launched Amazon 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS in favour of its now aging 3.2 Honeycomb rendition the Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition is set to land with a bevy of premium innards with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor to feature alongside 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

Only available in a Wi-Fi connectivity form, the Xoom 2 Media Edition spec is to be plumped by the inclusion of a rear-mounted 5-megapixel camera alongside a 1.3-megapixel forward-facing snapper, an 8.2-inch Gorilla glass HD display and a minimalist 8.99mm thickness and 386 gram heft.
