Motorola Xoom 2 details and UK release date

Motorola has revealed two new tablets designed to compliment the design and style of the recently announced Razr phone.

The Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition is the smaller of the two, with a 8.2 inch display and, according to Motorola, a 20% increase in graphics performance over the original Xoom.

The full fat Xoom 2 packs a 10.1 inch screen and the same processor as its little brother – a dual-core 1.2Ghz chip alongside an identical 16GB of storage. There’s no 32GB or 3G variants and Motorola cites cloud computing as the reason for the set storage size – there’s no MicroSD slots on either tablet. 1 GB of RAM is standard on each device too as are the 5 megapixel rear and 1.3 megapixel front cameras. The only real difference is the screen size, weight and, naturally, price between the two versions of Xoom 2. Prices are set at £329 for the Media Edition and £379 for the 10.1 inch version.

Carphone Warehouse are currently taking pre-orders and a UK release date is currently scheduled for mid November – a crowded debut with devices from Nokia and Samsung arriving at the same time…not to mention Motorola’s own Razr.
