Refurbished Motorola XOOM Family Edition priced at $280
Looking for a sub-$300 tablet? Then here is an offering from Motorola that we think is worth your attention. The Motorola XOOM Family Edition can be bought for $280, as long as you don't mind owning a refurbished unit.

What you get in exchange is a tablet pretty identical to the original Motorola XOOM – with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 touchscreen, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. Handling all the data processing is a dual-core Tegra 2 chip by NVIDIA. Yeah, it may come with Honeycomb out of the box, but an upgrade to Android 4.0 is promised to be released in a timely manner. To top everything off, the tablet comes with $30 worth of pre-installed software, and a 1-year warranty from Motorola.

Anyone thinking of getting one? Or perhaps you prefer waiting a bit for something better to come out? Let us know by dropping a comment below.

xD lolololol i got mine like a week ago because of this. this will probably go to my dad when i get my Xyboard 8.2 though, i just needed something quick because i wanted something to keep up with my On-Campus needs and the Summer Semester started Monday and also my dad wanted a good, cheap 10.1" Tablet and this is a good as it gets at this price range. this thing was really undersold. i can't believe blogs didn't give this more recognition instead of just the "yeah, this is a XOOM but for the Family" because it's actually a pretty nice Tablet that is much improved from the original XOOM, size being the most notable. all this thing needs is some ICS lovin' which Moto says is coming soon, like Q2 soon.

Interesting, but I might prefer going with a recent Asus Transformer series, if only for the improved screen, hardware, and OS

Or you can buy the original xoom for $200! Which does the same exact thing and it already has ICS!
