Motorola Xoom 2 specs and picture leak
Further to last week’s leak, new details have emerged on Motorola’s sequel to the damp squib of a tablet that was the Motorola Xoom. The Xoom 2 is pictured below, with specs suggesting it’s gone away and retooled itself for an all-out iPad war…
The 10.1-inch tab will come in at an extremely waif 9.3mm thick, yet it still packs in a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM. There’s no word on storage capacity, but it’s suggested to peak at 64GB.
HD features heavily in its spec sheet; the Xoom 2 can record video footage in full 1080p HD, and playback on its HD display should be equally top-notch. To cope with an emphasis on video, Moto’s stuffed the Xoom 2 with an 11-hour battery life.
Engadget’s anonymous tipster has scored a hoard of pictures of this tablet – the Xoom 2 – and another, smaller tablet, which is codenamed the Motorola Fleming.
Pictured above are the two tablets, which both take on the same form factor. Both are slim and feature those cut-away corners, and also have the physical buttons interestingly placed on the back, out of the way. In the picture we can see the power button and volume rocker buttons on the back edge of the tablets.
Both also have rear facing cameras with LED Flash components – an upgrade from the previous Xoom tablet. Reports state that the cameras are both 5-megapixels and are capable of shooting HD video footage.
We’ll tell you more when we get it. Can the second coming of the Xoom do much to unsettle iPad sales? Let us know your thoughts on the Gadget Helpline Twitter feed.
