Motorola have made their brand new tablets — the Motorola XOOM 2 and XOOM 2 Media Edition — official. The devices had been leaking around the internet for quite a while so it’s not as though these two devices have popped up out of no where. The new XOOMs look very much like scaled up version of the Motorola RAZR which is an interesting design choice — most likely to differentiate from the iPad to avoid any legal backlash.
The XOOM 2 features a 10.1-inch IPS display, whereas the XOOM 2 Media Edition packs a smaller 8.2-inch IPS display. Both have 1.2GHz Dual-Core processors along with 1GB of RAM, Android 3.2 and 16GB of internal storage. The XOOM 2 is 8.8mm thin and the Media Edition is 8.9mm thin — for comparisons sake the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is 8.6mm.
Both tablets are expected to launch later this month in the UK and although we’ve heard numerous rumours from sources here in Australia that it will launch by the end of the year, we’re yet to have any official word from Motorola.
