New Motorola Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition coming soon

Although the first Xoom hasn’t been what you’d call a success (well, no Android tablet has been, at least not when you look at iPad sales), Motorola is gearing up to launch two new Xooms.

The first one, unsurprisingly called Motorola Xoom 2, should be only 9mm thick, featuring a 10.1 inch HD display. According to This is my next, the tablet also has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 1080p video recording. Reportedly, the Xoom 2 will be the first tablet to come with Adobe Flash Player 11 and Netflix in HD.

The second new Xoom, apparently called Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition, should feature an 8.2 inch HD Gorilla Glass display, and is possibly splash-proof. It’s the same mysterious tablet that we’ve seen last week in a leaked photo.

Engadget (which published the photos seen below) has it that the new Xooms will run Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and feature LTE support.

There’s no word on when Motorola will announce the Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition, but it will probably happen soon (and I’m willing to bet that both will be upgraded to Android Ice Cream Sandwich after launch). We’ll keep you posted.

    I am curious about some statistics of our Xoom 3G userbase and how many have actually received the 4G LTE update. Verizon claims they are being made. I have yet to see or hear of a single instance. Please take this quick survey and pass the link on to everyone you know through facebook, twitter, and any other means to get results. Thank you!
