Woot.com fashion today we have another excellent deal for an Android tablet to share with our readers. We don't have Honeycomb on board but this tablet still has plenty going for it. Today Woot is offering the Vizio 8" VTAB Gingerbread tablet for a mere $159 complete with a folio case and just $5.00 shipping. That is over $170 less than retail although the unit does come refurbished.
woot.com I highly suggest you check it out. They were recently snatched up by the big box online retailer Amazon and today they are both working to bring this awesome deal to the table. The Wi-Fi only Motorola Xoom 32GB can be yours for just $339 from Amazon, but they are refurbished units.
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.
woot.com does have a little android treat for sale today. For those that don't know Woot they have one sale a day, and that is it (excluding woot-offs). So if you want to get in on the action you better act fast. If you're looking for a great way to get into an android tablet at a low price this would probably be your best bet. They have the 16GB Wifi AND 3G Samsung Galaxy Tab from Sprint for $259.
Pocket eDGe clamshell tablet, but sales mediocrity does have an interesting affect on pricing. Woot is currently offering the eDGe for $149.99, a far cry from the $399 it launched at late last year. Your money gets you a 1.2GHz Marvell processor, 7-inch WVGA touchscreen, 6-inch E Ink epaper display, 3GB of internal storage, WiFi b/g and Bluetooth. OS is Android 1.6, though there are apparently Froyo builds floating around if you're feeling brave. As with all Woot deals, there's limited stock and after today it's gone, so if you're interested it's probably best to buy sooner rather than later. Anybody keen? [gallery]
