The Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition


Motorola has finally unveiled its second generation of Xoom tablets, the xoom 2 and the Xoom 2 Media Edition. Both the 10.1-inch Xoom 2 and the 8.2-inch Xoom 2 Media Edition tablets should hit the UK and Ireland in mid-November.

Spec wise, both tablets are pretty much the same except for the obvious difference in dimensions and the size of the screen. The Xoom 2 will be running behind a 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass equipped screen and has 253.9x173.6x8.8mm dimensions while the Xoom 2 Media Edition is somewhat smaller with a 8.2-inch screen and 139x216x8.99mm dimensions. The Xoom 2 weighs 599 grams while the smaller Xoom 2 Media Edition is 386 gram heavy.

The rest of the specs for both tablets include a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU backed by 1GB of memory and 16GB of storage space. Both tablets are equipped with 5 megapixel rear snapper with LED flash and a 1.3 megapixel one in the front, as well as WiFi connectivity.

The bigger Xoom 2 also has a beefier battery that should keep it running to up to 10 hours of web usage, while the smaller one will have to settle with 6 hours.

As noted, both tablets are scheduled to appear on retail/e-tail shelves by mid-November, at least in the UK and Ireland, but we guess that the rest of the Europe might have a similar date.
