Codebreaker

Xoom successor already planned

John Moe Mar 23, 2011

You know what? I give up. Don’t buy a tablet. That’s my advice. At least don’t buy one until all the retailers start advertising every single tablet as “Tomorrow’s Outdated Model”. The latest buzz is that Motorola is about to stop production of the current version of the Xoom tablet. “Isn’t the Xoom the tablet that they just started selling last month?” Why yes it is, incredulous reader. But that was before the iPad 2 came out and set a new standard for tablets and one that Motorola must now follow with the impending Xoom 2. So if you bought a Xoom thinking it was state of the art, I hope you enjoyed your month or so of believing that.
