Motorola Spyder / DROID HD and XOOM 2 caught on camera againAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
We've seen quite a few Motorola leaks as of late, including a string of six or so that popped up at the end of last month and treated us to shots of devices like the Spyder/DROID HD/DROID RAZR and the XOOM 2. The Moto leaks continue today and, as luck would have it, both of the aforementioned products are the stars of the show. First up we've got a pair of photos of the Spyder showcasing the phone's front and rear. As you can see above, the Spyder's got Verizon branding on both its face and its backside, and the rear also seems to have a texturized look to it that may be the Kevlar coating that we've heard that the phone will have. The source of the images says that the Spyder's processor will be clocked at 1.2GHz when it launches, even though the CPU in the device in these images is clocked at 1.5GHz. Lastly, we can see a 4G logo on the Spyder's back, confirming LTE connectivity.
Moving on to bigger and XOOM-ier things, below are two photos of the XOOM 2 that have also surfaced. This particular XOOM is said to be the 8.2 inches (Media Edition?) in size and is described as being in "better shape" than prototypes that we've seen in the past. There's not much else to say about the XOOM 2 in these photos, although the good news is that the device is at least turned on in one of the photos.
So when might we commoners be able to get our paws on these two new Motorola devices? That's still up in the air at this point, although its rumored that the DROID HD will be landing sometime before the holidays to make your Verizon smartphone shopping decision even more difficult. The good news is that Moto and Verizon are teaming up for an event on October 18th, so it's entirely possible that we'll see at least one of these bad boys make their debut then. How do you all think the Spyder and XOOM 2 are shaping up? I'm kind of digging the Photon 4G-ish angled corners, myself. Drop your own thoughts in the comments below!
