Motorola might need to hire a roofer, because the company seems to have a few leaks at the moment. This weekend the folks at Droid Life, The Verge and Engadget have been one-upping each other left and right with photos and details about two upcoming tablets from the big M.
- Droid Life – first pictures
- The Verge – 10 inch tablet specs
- The Verge – Oh yeah, there’s an 8 inch model too
- Engadget – Hey would you like some photos?
- Engadget – How about a few more?
The Motorola XOOM was the first tablet to feature Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb when it launched in February. But it’s starting to look a bit… mundane now that Acer, Asus, Lenovo, Samsung, and other companies also have 10 inch Honeycomb tablets with dual core processors and 1280 x 800 pixel displays.
So it looks like Motorola’s next entries into the tablet space will provide a little something different. We still don’t have any specific details on the processors, but it appears that one of Motorola’s new tablets will have an 8.2 inch display while the other will have a 10.1 inch screen.
Both tablets will measure about 9mm thick, run Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb. They’ll each have 5MP rear-facing cameras and IR remote control features. They’ll also reportedly both offer 4G LTE mobile broadband options.
The 10 inch tablet will reportedly have an 11 hour battery, 1080p HD video recording capabilities, and a 1.2 GHz dual core processor.
The 8.2 inch version will apparently be called the XOOM 2 Media Edition and weigh about 0.95 pounds.
