As the first Honeycomb tablet to hit store shelves, the Motorola XOOM
perhaps lacks some of the glamor of its more recent Android slate siblings; however, it's still a solid option as long as the price is right. Woot
's deal for today is a $399.99 XOOM WiFi, a saving of $100 versus other retailers.
Now, it's a refurbished unit, not brand new, but we imagine there are plenty of people who will look past that for the sake of $100 left in their pocket. It's also not the Verizon 3G model, so there's no WWAN connectivity and no 4G LTE upgrade on the horizon; still, you also don't commit yourself to a data plan.
In fact the biggest issue might be low-cost rivals. Amazon is currently asking the same price for a brand new Acer Iconia Tab A500
, which we reviewed back in April
, with similar performance but a metal casing.
