Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition hands-on

The Xoom 2 Media Edition is a smaller, more portable version of the Xoom 2. We like the slimmed down dimensions, but when it launches it won’t be running Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version of Android, making it hard to recommend for Android addicts. Stay tuned for the full review.
