    New Tablet with Xoom build quility

    I gave my Xoom tablet to my 83 year old father-in-law. This was a great idea as he seems way happier with the tablet than he was with the desktop computer we previously gave him AND it gives me the opportunity to buy a new modern tablet.

    My problem is what tablet to buy. I bought the Xoom specifically because of the excellant, dare I say almost Apple like, build quality. My problem and question is what to buy now; looking at build quality as the primary criteria (it is my experience that if something is externally well engineered it is inevitably internally well engineered.

    Any thought will be appreciated.

    Hi hip, I have been researching the tablet market for weeks looking for a Xoom replacement.
    Considering the quality build and the features of the Xoom, nothing out there at present can match it.
    The only alternative is the new Ipad, but you have to live in Apple world to like it.
    Good luck.

    I went out today and played with the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, very nice. From a touchy feely POV it is a possible contender. Price is a drawback.

    I like the Sony, you can't hammer nails in with it, like you can with the xoom, but it's a lovely tablet.
