While the Motorola XOOM was the first Android Honeycomb tablet on the market, it didn’t exactly create a huge splash when it was released earlier this year. Well, it looks like Motorola is out to try it’s hand at the tablet market again with the release of a successor to its first tablet – the XOOM 2. First hinted at in some leaked screenshots taken from the Motorola website, there hasn’t really been any news about the tablet – until today.
The folks over at Droid-Life have managed to score some photographs of the Motorola XOOM 2 as well as some additional details about the tablet. The photos are blurry and low quality (no surprise there) but they are good enough to show us what the tablet is going to look like (assuming it’s going to be the final design).
The XOOM 2 is said to be similar in weight to the original XOOM, it packs an HDMI and micro USB port, big physical flush buttons on the back, a SIM card slot, a front camera, a rear camera that is labeled “HD”, and a 10.1″ display. No word about its internals, what version of Android it is running, and which carrier it’ll be arriving on, but let’s hope Motorola will release a WiFi-only version first, and that it won’t debut with cutthroat prices.
