Motorola XOOM 2 caught on camera? [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Ready to wrap up the work week with pictures of an unannounced tablet? Good, because that's exactly what we're going to do thanks to some shots sent over to the folks at Droid-Life. The device you're looking at above is said to be the the MZ617, also known as the Motorola XOOM 2. According to the source of the images, the XOOM 2 is packing a what looks like a 10.1-inch screen, a rear camera with "HD" plastered on its housing, another camera around front, HDMI and micro USB ports, SIM card slot (likely for LTE connectivity), and a body that weighs about the same as the original XOOM. Speaking of the body, this new XOOM also features angled corners that are reminiscent of both the Photon 4G and that other mysterious Motorola tablet that leaked earlier this week.
What kind of processor can we expect to find in the XOOM 2? Which carrier(s) might it be headed to? Can it make me a turkey sandwich? Those are some of the big questions that we're left to wonder after tonight's leak. If the past is any indication, though, we'll hear more about the XOOM 2 sooner rather than later. Stay tuned!
UPDATE: The folks at This is my next have gotten more details on the XOOM 2 that you may want to be aware of. According to the site's source, the new XOOM is packing a 10.1-inch display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of "faster" RAM, 1080p video capture, and 11 hours of battery life, all in a body that measures 9mm thick. The tipster also claims that the XOOM 2 will be the first tablet to ship with Flash Player 11, can stream Netflix in HD, may be capable of wireless sync, and could even have a built-in IR blaster.
