Motorola's first entry into the Android tablet market was by all accounts a flop. The company, however, is looking to make things right this time around with a second generation product. The company has announced two new tablets that are running both Android 3.2.
The Motorola Xoom 2 features a 10.1" Gorilla Glass display, uses a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, and contains 16GB of storage space. A 5MP rear camera with LED flash is included as is a 1.3MP front-facing camera. The second generation Xoom weighs in at a respectable 1.32 pounds.
The next new entry to the fray is the Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition. This model uses a smaller 8.2" display, but still includes all of the other hardware specs of its bigger brother. It weighs in at 0.85 pounds.
“Tablets are quickly becoming a must-have tool for staying connected, getting work done and having fun at home and on the road,” said Victoria McManus, marketing director for Motorola Mobility UK & Ireland. “We are very excited about these two new additions to our tablet portfolio that build on the success of the original Motorola XOOM to now deliver more powerful tablet experiences to the European market.”
Both tablets have been announced for the UK and Ireland; however, there is no word on when the tablets will be available in other markets around the world.
