Australian carrier Telstra gets the Motorola Xoom 2

Australian carrier Telstra will get the Motorola Xoom 2 -- aka the Droid XYBOARD on Verizon here in the States. Nothing has changed, really, from the version we reviewed earlier this year. Same 10.1-inch display, same 1.2GHz processor, with 32GB of storage. Pricing variers depending on the data plan, which starts at $29 a month for 1GB and hits $89 a month for 15GB of data. (Those are Australian dollars, which in addition to sounding cooler than dollars here in the U.S. are also worth slightly more. That's some expensive data.)

Oh, and this guy's still running Android 3.2 Honeycomb. Not surprising, but it's about time we see devices shipping with Ice Cream Sandwich, boys and girls.
