When we first reported on Motorola's alleged Xoom 2, very few - if any - details were certain. An anonymous tipster has been piling on the information since then, however, providing photos, (some) specs, and perhaps the most interesting detail of all - a second, smaller version of the Xoom 2, expected to be billed as an "e-reader replacement."


The Xoom 2's smaller relative appears to have the same rear buttons (power and volume rocker) as its larger counterpart, and a generally similar form factor, if not yet completely polished.

Obviously a full list of specs has not been confirmed, but here's what we think we know so far about the Xoom 2, thanks to the tipster:

  • Sleek 9mm thickness
  • 1.2GHz Processor (of unknown origin, possibly an OMAP 4)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 1080p video recording with a 5MP rear shooter
  • LTE Compatibility

The smaller tablet, suspected to be a "media version," supposedly shares the same specs as its larger relative, but is rumored to add an onboard IR remote and subwoofer, as well as an 8.2" HD IPS display.

Additionally, This Is My Next is reporting that the Xoom 2 may be the first tablet to launch with Adobe Flash 11, and stream Netflix HD, leading to the speculation that Moto's new tablet will be packing an OMAP 4 processor.


Motorola's new tablets may also have wireless PC sync capabilities baked in, in the form of special apps Moto is currently working on. Finally, TIMN's tipster indicated that optional stylus and keyboard accessories are in the works as well.

For now nothing more is known about the upcoming tablets. Still, we've been given a rather hefty collection of rumors to speculate about until some official word comes, and of course we'll continue to provide new information as it becomes available.
