Hello There, Motorola XOOM 2. [Specs + Pictures]

  • November 3, 2011 9:45 am


Motorola has made the XOOM 2 and XOOM 2 “Media Edition” official. Along with the confirmation comes a handful of product images and healthy list of specs.

As previous leaks have suggested, the XOOM 2 follows a new design featuring softer, more rounded edges instead of the hard, angular edges of devices from the previous generation. We like it. A lot.

Besides the prettier face Motorola says the improved internals are good enough for a 20% improvement in graphics performance over its predecessor, the original XOOM. But is it good enough to justify buying another tablet?

Hop past the jump for all the details…

XOOM 2 To Be Released “Before Christmas” For $545 (Europe)

Why hello there, Motorola XOOM 2. Thanks to a ballsy Carphone Warehouse employee we now know the second generation 8.2″ tablet will make it to market in time for the holidays for a price of €399.90 — that’s $545 USD for all you Americans out there.

We’re pretty eager to try out the 8.2″ version, though understandably the smaller size isn’t for every. Current rumors peg a larger 10″ follow-up to the original XOOM as well, unfortunately no more information is known at this point.

Enough of an upgrade to open your wallet?

Motorola’s Spyder And XOOM 2 Step Out From The Shadows.

Motorola’s upcoming Spyder (DROID HD) Android phone and XOOM 2 tablet have taken a few steps forward (thankfully) sans any covers giving us a nice glimpse of their true character.

The Spyder/DROID HD will feature a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor (though the model spied above apparently ran a bit hotter at 1.5 GHz), 1 GB of RAM, 4.3-inch+ display and pretty much everything else you’d expect from a high-end device these days. Meanwhile the XOOM 2′s most readily apparent feature is the new, rounded design similar to the Electrify on U.S. Cellular — a design which we love. Thankfully the XOOM 2 won’t have to deal with that pesky 3G -> LTE hardware musical chairs and will ship with next-gen wireless from the factory.

Anyone going to skip the Galaxy Nexus and instead jump into bed with Moto?

XOOM 2 Shows Its Face, Leaves Us Wanting More.

How would a XOOM 2 packed with gorgeous display, speedy dual- or quad-core processor and LTE (sorry XOOM 1 owners) sound? Pretty awesome we’d gather. While we don’t know for sure what the XOOM 2 will feature just yet, we can at least go to bed knowing what it will look like.

The images above were leaked by Droid-Life earlier tonight and allegedly depict the XOOM 2 (and yet another device featuring Motorola’s apparent new style which makes use of rounded edges and a bit more color variation than their current boxy, black gadgets).

Consider us intrigued.

Open Letter: Motorola, Make Good XOOM LTE Promises Before Releasing XOOM 2.

Between claimed spottings on commercials and a trip through the FCC, a 2011 Motorola XOOM 2 release is looking more believable. The image above is the most recent piece of the puzzle and contains what many believe to be the second generation Motorola XOOM in a package slightly longer and shorter than the first-gen sibling. Rumored specs include the usual assortment of fast dual-core processor, big vibrant screen and plentiful storage. But it is the addition of LTE that has us most intrigued.

So where do we stand with the original XOOM LTE hardware upgrade…?

Motorola Accidentally Outs XOOM 2, Slimeline, Zaha, And Tracy XL.

Following a company split earlier this year, Motorola Mobility appears to be doing some late spring cleaning/rearranging. Lucky for us, their new site redesign didn’t go all too perfectly as the XOOM 2 tablet and three other unannounced devices were leaked!

The devices — XOOM 2, Slimline, Zaha, and Tracy XL. While the pictures themselves are crude at best, void of any hardware specs, and lack any release date/pricing information, we’re still intrigued to say the least.

Seeing as how Motorola asked fellow tech site PocketNow to take down their cache of leaked devices means we’re working with finite time. Get your oogling done before Motorola comes knocking. (Though once something makes it’s way to the internet, it’s never quite possible to reach “private” status once again.)
