Motorola hasn’t actually announced a replacement or update for the Motorola XOOM line yet, but new 8 and 10 inch tablets are rumored to be in the works, and we’ve already seen some leaked photos of each. Today at least one of those devices inched a little closer to launch as it passed through the FCC website.
The FCC listing doesn’t name the tablet or offer up any details on the screen size. But we do know from the test results report that the new Motorola tablet will have processor speeds up to 1.2 GHz, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage. It will also has a 1280 x 800 pixel display.
The tablet will support 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth. There’s no mention of 3G or 4G mobile broadband — but that doesn’t really mean much. There may be multiple versions of the tablet, and the one that we’re looking at may just be the first to visit the FCC.
I’m looking forward to seeing the next Xoom. Has anyone seen the Xoom family edition Best Buy exclusive? I was surprised when I went to Best Buy and saw that it has a different casing than the first Xoom. It’s a little rounder and the buttons are in different places. I thought it felt pretty good. It felt a little lighter than the original. It also appears to have an IPS screen. It’s 16GB and $399, which is what a lot of people criticized Motorola for not having, but it’s probably too little too late now. Also I think they customized Android a little to make it ‘family friendly’. Too bad. It was interesting to see Motorola make a Best Buy exclusive. I wonder how that came about.
