Some sort of sequel to the Motorola Xoom was surely inevitable. It’s not quite the “iPad killer” (stupid phrase) many were predicting when it first surfaced in January, but, y’know, it’s not too shabby either.
It’s suggested that the Motorola Xoom 2 will rock the quad-core Kal-El (Tegra 3) chip. It was first unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February, and we were told it’d start appearing in tablets in the latter half of 2011.
The screen size is expected to remain in the 10in area, but the resolution will rise to an eye-melting 2048 x 1536.
And as if that wasn’t impressive enough, it could be one of the first devices to rock Ice Cream Sandwich, which promises to unite Android smartphone and tablet users later in the year.
More excitinger still, the Motorola Xoom 2 is said to be in final testing, with a possible launch before Christmas. It better be quick, if it hopes to compete with the iPad 2 Plus, S1 and S2, and Amazon tablet.
