Motorola Xoom 2 in the works

Motorola Xoom 2 in the worksSome 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.

Some recently leaked shots of a revamped Motorola website included a Motorola Xoom 2, and now we’ve got some specs to go on too, courtesy of Notebookitalia.

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.

After my experience with xoom, I would not touch anything motorola with a barge pole. I'm stuck with a xoom still on its original 3.0 s/w, over 2 months after 3.1 was released, and now 3.2 rolling out! MOTOROLA show utter contempt towards it's non-US customers. See their own support forum , if you want proof! UK trading standards are currently investingating them!

Agreed - Motorola really annoyed me with their lack of support on the original xoom. They can stick the xoom 2 up their MotoArses as far as I am concerned.
