Apparently Motorola is in the middle of a site redesign. Exciting, right? Pff... no. But the contents that were discovered because of said site redesign... now that's pretty exciting. PocketNow has acquired some images of the new site that display some upcoming Moto devices, including the XOOM 2, a couple of new handsets, and, curiously enough, a watch.

slimline zaha

Let's start off with the new phones: the Slimline and the Zaha (shown above, respectively). First off, we have absolutely zero information on this pair, aside from the fact that they look super clean and thin. It's probably pretty likely that these are just codenames as well, so I wouldn't expect to walk in to your provider looking for them by these names in the foreseeable future.

xoom-2

See that thing in the background - the one off to the right? That appears to be the XOOM 2. It's kinda blurry, but you get the idea.

This one is the most curious to me - the watch. It looks like it's called the Tracy XL, along with the tagline "Dick Tracy Never Saw This Coming" along side. Honestly, I'm not even going to try to speculate on what Moto has planned here - but it could be potentially awesome.

    You don't know why they would call it a Xoom 2? In the images you posted on this page it is labelled the Xoom 2. ;)

    On the bottom of a few of the shots it has the Xoom 2 label.

  • Eggo

    Sites are probably calling it the Motorola Xoom 2 because it says throughout the pages thats its the Xoom 2. ;P

  • Russell Holly

    See that third image, right around where you were criticizing other bloggers for calling the tablet the Xoom 2? Well, behind the tablet is says "Introducing Xoom 2". Is it really such a stretch? Really?

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Settle down, Russell. No need to be butthurt because we made an oopsie. We weren't being critical... I put that in there because I couldn't see that in the image. I just fixed it.

      • liams

        wow. Not sure that's the best way to respond to an honest opinion if you plan to keep readers coming back.

        • Jon Garrett

          we will keep coming back because we love android (even though I still have an iphone 4)

          his response was fine.

        • XD

          lol agreed :p so does anyone how to s-off for nexus one? flashed and it became s-on

          @Jon Garrett

          There are plenty of other Android websites to get news from as well. Most of which don't reply to their readers with insults pertaining to @na1 penetration. What is this site run by a bunch of high schoolers? Rule #1 of running a forum or a blog. Check your ego and your emotions at the door. There is no place for either on a site that wants to be considered a news site. I mean this isn't Faux News after all. Right?

          For those unfamiliar with Russell Holly: http://min.us/mbcxADIkAavS0v

          I have no problem with an honest opinion or being criticized (see: http://www.androidpolice.com/2011/05/28/review-motorola-droid-x2-even-raw-horsepower-cant-save-this-phone-from-mediocrity/#comments - I've read every single one of those comments). What I do have a problem with is other Android bloggers who seem to be here solely for a chance to call us out when we make an honest mistake.

          And for the record, when I've seen other Android blogs make similar mistakes, I've emailed the author/editor directly rather than post a somewhat rude comment. Russell knows how to get in touch with us.

  • Sam

    Just give me the bionic already...

  • Tommy

    All the phones looks very "concept" to me. Not that that's a bad thing...

  • ocdtrekkie

    For all we know, they threw some concept mockups and fake codenames in as test data while designing the site. ;)

    • Tommy

      I agree with you.

  • thegreattaurus

    looks like the xoom 1 is already outdated. if they launch the xoom 2 before a year into the xoom life cycle it was def a fail for them

    • ocdtrekkie

      Have you seen the rate replacement phones are released at? Simply put, not every company is as slow as Apple at innovation.

      And as I said, these could simply be concepts they used while working on a new site design. And since we know nothing about these devices from the rumor mill yet, they could be as much as a year off!

      Think about when we learned about the Droid Bionic was coming, and we still don't have it.

      My God man, stop being so doom and gloom.

    • SiliconAddict

      The Xoom is a perfectly fine device. Moto needs to get their head out of their butt and realize what is killing the Xoom is price and the fact that android 3.0 was buggy out of the box.

  • JAG

    Excellent, but the question is?

    Should I wait for them this year?

  • Fabulas

    can't wait to see the watch!

  • L boogie

    If it is the Xoom 2 then, Motorola needs to learn from mistakes of the first Xoom; price, sd card, better resolution, better camera etc to create a much better sequel..... The phone concepts & the watch are interesting.

    Can the HTC merge be powered by cspire? It's the only provider that works in my area.
