Re: XOOM 2 ME: SD card

In the press release for U.K., no SD card is being mentioned or listed in the tech specs:

http://mediacenter.motorola.com/Press-Releases/Motorola-Mobility-Launches-Two-New-Tablets-in-the-UK-and-Ireland-38b5.aspx

the Motodev site for the WiFi only version says: "Not available in all areas" for the SD card.

http://developer.motorola.com/products/xoom-2-me-mz607/

As a logical conclusion it seems that the U.K. is an area where the SD card is not available in the WiFi only XOOM 2.

J,

thanks for your reply.

the wifi only version of ME is just being released in the UK at the moment - I am trying to confirm if this version does indeed have a microSD slot for storage expansion. You tube pre release reviews of this product from last month would imply that the wifi only version does not have a microSD slot but I guess the spec may have been changed for the full release.

getting an answer on this would help me decide on my purchase.

thanks again,

xoomer2012 (hopefully ).

@flashy

    

Understandable, but there is a small section showing that there is an SD card slot. I really didn't read past that.

I do not have the Xoom 2 ME, so I have forwarded your question along, as soon I hear something, I'll be sure to post back here for you.

Welcome to the Forums!

TRose,

thank you for your post - this explains why I have been confused - mind you it doesn't explain why in some countries this ships with a SD slot and in others it doesn't ... i guess it's down to marketing .

Still tempted for one of these - just need to decide if 16GB is enough which probably is given I've set up my own NAS where i can dump and access stuff as required.

xoomer2012. (still a possibility )

Hi,

I have just got my Xoom 2 Media Edition and can confirm that the UK version does NOT have an SD slot.

(Although the user guide tells you to insert the SD card as part of setup !)

Joanne,

thanks for confirming the lack of SD slot. I also noticed on Amazon (UK) this morning that there are some bad reviews due to the lack of SD slot given the manual (as you say) says to insert one! I think some people are feeling a bit misled by Motorola.

All the reviews that came out at the beginning of December that I read, did say there would be no SD slot,

so I wasn't expecting one - I just a had a brief moment of joy for an unexpected extra feature, which was sadly crushed as I opened the little flap.

But Motorola do need to sort out the information and manual for the UK, bad reviews from disgruntled buyers will really hurt them.
