The Motorola Xoom 2 will be the new headline tablet in Motorola’s Xoom range. Read on to find out everything you need to know about the new tablet.
The Motorola Xoom got a mixed bunch of reviews when it first hit our shelves. Users weren’t too happy with some of the feature on-board, and it did feel quite behind against other tablets that were around at the same time. Motorola are aiming to make amends for this by rolling out two new Xoom’s before the end of the year; the Motorola Xoom 2, and the Xoom 2 Media Edition. For the purpose of this post, we’re going to focus on the Motorola Xoom 2 and give you the lowdown of what to expect from in the next throw of the dice from Motorola.
Size, design and display
The original Xoom was a bulky device, weighing in at a flabby 708g. It seems Motorola have taken note of this and the Xoom 2 will weigh in at a trimmed 599g. It still isn’t as light as we would’ve liked, but it is a definite improvement over the original. In terms of dimensions, you’ll be looking at 253.9 x 173.6 x 8.8 mm, which makes it slightly thinner than the original Xoom, but will be similar in most other areas. The classic black bezel will make an appearance, as well as some curved edges, which should make it comfortable to hold. Not much has changed, in terms of the display, with the same 10.1″ display being used, as it was in the original Xoom 2. When we first looked at the Xoom, we were pretty impressed, so there wasn’t any reason to change something that wasn’t broken, right?
Photo Warp is a free photo-editing app available on the Android Market. Read on to see our views on Photo Warp.
The Android Market is awash with photo-editing apps to give a few laughs here and there. One that has been getting an amazing stream of downloads recently is Photo Warp.
The app allows you to import photos in to the app to start editing, or has a function allowing you to take a photo through the app.
When you’ve chosen and loaded the photo you want to mess around with, the fun can really begin. On the bottom of the screen, there are two tabs that open up to give you a series of tools for you to customise your photo. There is a zoom in tool that makes aspects of the photos smaller, and a zoom out tool that makes things bigger. You can also drag your finger on certain body parts to distort them. When you’re done, you can save them to your phone or SD card to share with others.
