Which Android tablet?!


Standard Member
Hey guys,

Just after some advice. I'm looking for an Android tablet to use for my work. I need something that's fast, good screen, good battery and has both forward and rear facing cameras, as I am working on augmented reality apps.

I very nearly ordered the Nexus 7, as it seemed to be ideal, fast, good battery, until I realised it didn't have the rear camera. And at £200, it seemed even better. Shame.

Anyway, so I started looking again and came across these.

Motorola Xoom 2 10.1

and the

Motorola Xoom 2 8.2

My knowledge of tablets is pretty poor, but from the specs I see, these don't look too bad, and are reasonably priced too. And according to the manufactures website, it should get Android 4 in the 3rd quarter this year, which would be nice.

So what does everyone think of those? What's everyone's opinion on 10 inch vs 8 inch? Is the extra size screen an advantage or disadvantage? Or maybe someone knows of a better tablet, similar in price, that runs Android?

Why is a rear facing camera so important? What will you be using it for that you need a tablet with one?

Amazon have a tablet called and Ployer Momo 11 Bird for about £150 that has a camera on both sides, i'm not sure they are up to the standard you need. I've been thinking about getting it myself but apart from the customer reviews I cant find much on it.

Ployer Momo11 Bird Tablet PC - 9.7 Inch Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) - 1024 * 768 Capacitive 10 Point Touch Screen, 1.6GHz Processor, 16GB storage, 1GB DDR3 Memory, Ultra Thin, 9.7mm design - 3D Output - Flash 11.1 - New Google Play installed -
