Motorola Shows Off Two New Xoom Tablets
Motorola Mobility has shown off two new variants of its Xoom tablets, to go on sale in the UK and Ireland next month.
The new Motorola XOOM 2 and Motorola XOOM 2 Media Edition both feature Android 3.2, a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, displays with Corning Gorilla Glass and a splashguard coating.
Motorola XOOM 2 with Wi-Fi sports a 10.1-inch widescreen HD display and Android 3.2 Honeycomb like its predecessor, but the similarities end there. The display is brighter and more vibrant than before with colour enhancement, and the edges have been designed to make the tablet more comfortable to hold. It is compatible with the optional Motorola Stylus for note-taking, hand-writing emails and sketching. Motorola XOOM 2 is loaded with Business Ready features like VPN support and data encryption.
Motorola XOOM 2 with Wi-Fi and 8.2-inch display is approximately 100 grams lighter than the original Motorola XOOM. Motorola XOOM 2 Media Edition also has a 20 percent improvement in graphics performance over the original Motorola XOOM
