Motorola has officially announced their Xoom 2 range of tablets, the Xoom 2 and the Xoom 2 Media Edition. They are due to launch sometime this month in Europe.
Specs wise, both the of the Xoom 2 devices have a dual-core processor running at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera and 16GB of internal storage. It is highly likely that the Xoom 2 will have other capacities, including 32GB and possibly 64GB. Also, it will launch with Honeycomb, but will taste Ice Cream Sandwich at a later date.
The difference between the normal and the Media Edition versions of the Xoom 2 is the screen (and battery life). The screen of the Media Edition is only 8.2 inches, whereas the normal Xoom 2 has a 10.1 inch screen (and a larger capacity battery). Both are protected with Gorilla Glass, and they both have an odd octagonal shape, like the RAZR and the Photon (Apple would probably sue them if it was rectangular).
The devices will launch in the UK and Ireland towards the end of this month.
This is the 2nd generation of Xoom tablets from Motorola, with the original Xoom not selling particularly well. Personally, I think they should have waited and used a Tegra 3 and Ice Cream Sandwich, as this is not massively different from the original Xoom.
