2.3 Honeycomb?

cguella says:

3.2 we have to assume

malockin says:

that makes more sense... I though my coffee wasn't working right!

vindogg80 says:

price?

They seem to have just forgotten to mention the single most important spec: price.

The Asus Prime beats every spec and is $399.

So the Xoom 2 will need to be $299?

slbailey1 says:

Are you sure that the Asus Prime 16gb is $399? Will the Asus Prime 32gb be $499?

ryan5609 says:

The Asus Transformer Prime will start out at $499 and I am assuming that is for the 16GB version. http://www.droid-life.com/2011/10/04/asus-not-scared-by-kindle-fire-thre...

DerekMorr says:

What is the processor? 1.2 GHz dual-core what? Tegra 2? OMAP 4x00?

Monsi1 says:

I believe that is OMAP4
All the new Moto devices have OMAP, ready for the 4.0 without need to f&*() their live modifying the system lol

jeres88 says:

So.... it's basically the Xoom with some Moto Bloatware on it?

pathtologos says:

+ 1, this is ridiculous. It has practically the same exact specs as the first xoom. It's disappointing.

DerekMorr says:

I already have a Xoom. What does this new version bring to the table? It looks like a slightly faster processor and bloatware. If it has Blur, that's a deal-breaker.

I guess Motorola figures that since the iPad2 still has a dual core that they didn't need to go to anything else. If the Xoom 2 is going to be just as much as the Transformer Prime, why would anyone buy the Xoom 2? If this comes in at $499, I don't think it will do any better than the original.

ZDriver says:

Junk specs and its fugly, whats up with motorola and the pyramidical angular phones and tablets....... FUGLY

kyopoboy says:

My guess is they put those ugly corners on their new phones and tablets to dissuade the trolls at CrApple.

jonyah says:

Looks like it's a big "FAIL". This brings nothing new to the table. The Transformer Prime will blow this away in every spec. And you bet on the fact that Samsung will have something similar to Prime very soon as well. Motorola is falling behind fast.

eahinrichsen says:

Yeah, Moto's phones for the last year have been really solid, but the original Xoom didn't impress me and this certainly isn't changing my mind. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 was the first Android tablet that did anything for me, and once Samsung refreshes that, Motorola's tablets are going to look like Etch A Sketches.

AndroidUK says:

Cameras are a disappointment, no mention of sensors. Wonder if it will use both US GPS and Russian Glonass satellites like the new Samsung and Apple devices?

Any expansion card slot? What type of Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/GSM etc.

This looks like a very brief "outline" spec that does not tell the whole story. The bit it does tell is rather disappointing bearing in mind the Asus Transformer Mark 2 (Prime) hits the streets next week and looks like it would beat these new models on just about every count.

After the fiasco over the non-working card slot and the long delay in the LTE upgrade in the USA for the original Xoom, Motorola needed to pull a fancy rabbit out of the hat!

mike28486 says:

"USB and Ethernet connectivity"

Really, they shoved an ethernet port in this thing...why?

eahinrichsen says:

That is such a bizarre decision. A USB port is a welcome addition, but ethernet? It's awkward enough using a tab when it's plugged in to charge, let alone tethered to cat5.
