Motorola Xoom 2 on the way: 64GB is the order of the day

Motorola Xoom 2 on the way: 64GB is the order of the dayThe Motorola Xoom may have been the first Android tablet to run Honeycomb when it launched earlier this year. But queuing up to buy it, punters were not. In fact, Motorola only managed to shift 100,000 of the things in a three month period.

So, with renewed buoyancy (possibly provided in Motorola Mobility's takeover by Google), Moto is coming back fighting and the Xoom 2 is the imminent result, if this screenshot taken from one of the US networks' sales database is to be believed.

Looking closely, it appears to show that the Xoom 2 will come in a variety of screen and hard drive sizes with a mouth-watering 64GB version to accompany 32GB and 16GB  variants.

Rumours have also suggested a quad-core processor on the inside and 2048 x 1536-pixel resolution to show off. Naturally, we'd expect it to come with Ice Cream Sandwich which now consolidates the Honeycomb and Gingerbread OS's.

There's no concrete evidence but Droid-Life reckons that the model number MZ617 is a 10.1-inch screen version of the Xoom 2, whilst the MZ609 is a smaller screen size.

But as TechRadar points out, there have also been spy shots of an 8.2-inch and a 7-inch Xoom 2 in the not so distant past so which ones make it to market could be anyone's guess.

And which markets get them is another guess. Because the above tablet screenshots were captured in the US. We can only hope that Motorola brings the Xoom 2 over here. In all fairness, we can't imagine why it wouldn't since the original Xoom was on sale in the UK but you never know with them.

If they are planning on launching it soon though, they best get a move on. The lucrative Christmas shopping period has already begun.

Wouldnt it be great if the priving in that magazine was for the 64GB version for 399 Euros, that would be the type of aggressive pricing that motorola/google need to do to stay in the game before they are squeezed out of the market by the iPad and Kindle fire
