Motorola has officially confirmed that the Motorola Xoom 2 and Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition will be coming to the UK and we have got the official price tags thanks to T3.
The beautifully designed Xoom 2 features a 10.1” HD display, a pretty powerful 1.2GHz processor, 16GB of storage, back (5-mp) and front (1.3-mp) cameras and a 1GB of RAM to make this device smooth to the touch. The front display also comes with splash-guard nano technology protecting the device against spills and splashes. This device weighs only 599 grams and is 8.8 mm thick (thinner than the iPad2).
And the only difference with the Media Edition is the screen size, which Motorola decided to make a tablet with only 8.2” Gorilla glass HD display and of course the thickness and weight, which comes with only 8.99 mm of thickness and 386 grams.
Sadly both these devices will only come with Android Honeycomb (3.2) which is a shame as Android 4.0 will be release on the 17th of November with the new Nexus.
The price for both tablets raises above the £300 price tag, with the Xoom 2 at £379.99 and the Media Edition at only £329.99. Both these prices are under the iPad 2′s current price of £399, however Apple might have a trick on their sleeves for Christmas, we will have to wait and see!
There is no doubt that the Xoom 2 is a wonderful device and it might be just what we all been waiting for as an Android tablet. Don’t forget that Google bought Motorola Mobility earlier this year and this might be a device conceived for Android. Do you think Motorola will release an update to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) any time soon? Do you think these new tablets are ready to take on the iPad 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab’s and/or other tablets now in the market? Leave your comments below on who you think will be the tablet for this Christmas.
