Handful of New Motorola Devices Spied in Site Redesign, XOOM 2 Included?

After digging through the back end of Motorola’s website, a site redesign was discovered along with a number of never-before-seen or heard-of devices including the XOOM 2.  Embedded into the images of this new Moto site we are seeing what appear to be codenames of Zaha, Slimline, Pearl, and Tracy XL.  The same images for each phone are used over and over again though, so we’re really not sure if these are fake, Moto screwing with all of us, or early renders.  We’re hoping that at least a couple make it to market though, as the designs are something we haven’t seen before.   

So basically what we can gather is the Slimline is Moto’s attempt at competing with the Galaxy S2 or LG Optimus Black on the thickness meter.  It appears to have taken a new approach to their now-famous camera hump, sports a shiny new grey back cover, and huge camera encasing.  It has that squared off look of a tablet or DROIDX which you know we’re big fans of.

The Zaha on the other hand has taken on some sort of futuristic disk design and at this angle at least, is not super appealing.  The screen does look oversized, but until we see more, will not be waiting impatiently for this one to arrive.

The Tracy XL is a watch.  We’re not sure what all it can do, but are thinking it’ll at least run Android.  There are no real details involved, and with these shoddy screenshots, all we can see are different color variations and a mention of Dick Tracy.

The XOOM 2 is probably what you really care about though, right?  Again, thanks to the blurrified images, all we can see is the name and what appears to be a silver rim around the outside of the device.  The upper edge of it looks much thinner than the original XOOM though, so we can hold out hope that Moto addressed the obvious design flaws on its first take.

What do you guys think?  Are these just place holders?  Any of them look appealing?

    XXoom 2 don’t worry it won’t be out for a year. If it’s on Verizon it will definitely be a year.

  • Forme

    wow… really?  bet most people on this forum can design a better looking phone than that. I mean just give me the 6fig job- I’d be happy to do it.

  • LarryL

    Why is everyone’s talking about the XOOM? Did no one notice that SEXY SLIMELINE phone in the center?  Btw, Motorola Mobility has asked PocketNow to remove the images. Hmmm…..

  • ShopDroid

    Xoom2 * 1/2 price = XOOM!   Hope they won’t make the same mistake this time around, or MOT will be irrelevant soon in the Android tab market.

    so someone tell me why the “Xoom 2″ in the article is a link that links back to this article?

  • Steve Jobs jr.

    do i sense a price drop for the Xoom 1? then maybe i will actually buy the soon to be outdated and old xoom thats 2 months old.

    Im pretty sure Xoom was the test pilot for Motorola and the 2nd Xoom will be concetrated on.. i guess we will know when Verizon knocks the price down all of a sudden to make room for the new one.. just like how they bumped down the price of the droid x1 to make room.

    The XOOM 2 will probably get motoblur… The same pattern they followed from the Droid to the X,2 and PRO… They simply wanted to introduce a tablet without blur to test waters and get people developing apps for it… The XOOM 2 is the “finished” product (I’m hoping quad core)

  • Mr.Joe

    Yeah…

    Just sit on the Bionic I want a watch!

    First it was the Star Wars D2 know the Dick Tracy Droid watch, All we need know is some milk and a Jethro Bowl of Apple Jacks!!!

  • Phonzoxd

    is the new site up yet?

  • Anonymous

    If i didn’t know better, I’d say that Moto was designing a bathroom scale with that grey device in the center.

    Motorola is working very hard to bring you a version of blur to go over honeycomb.

    Not looking forward to the OG tag on my Xoom after owning it for only 2 months….And still no SD card support? WTF

    Any mention of the Bionic/Targa? Phandroid seems to think so but the pics are too small for me to make out what the writing says.

    This really isn’t news.  We all knew the XOOM was being discontinued this summer.

    The Design actually looks pretty cool. Random side note, I had a 4G signal in Sarasota, FL, for about 2 minutes on my TB. Sadly, I didn’t get to run a speed test.

    Unless the Xoom 2 has a quad core chip, a working SD card slot, NFC, Ice Cream, is a 1/3 cheeper.. no, I don’t care

      It probably will have quad core seeing how moto will have the first tablet with it inside

  • Ddm799

    Leta hope that slimline is real. I think it’s a sharp phone following the slim form factor especially how they handled the camera bump. Depending in specs id buy it when my contract was up.

    If they release a Xoom2 before they finish the Xoom 1…I smell a class action suit.

       How so? What promise or contractual obligation did they make to not release a new product?

        4GLTE, MicroSD Card Support

        • Anonymous

          Already has microSD card support officially. And again, why would they be barred from developing a new device based on the LTE modem? It was only said they would upgrade it for free, not that they would halt all future development until it was completed.

          With all the talk of Kal-El lately, not to mention months ago when Nvidia said they would have Kal-El devices mid summer, who didn’t see this coming?

            Its called false advertising

            How is it false advertising?! That comment makes no sense!

        • Mathew Peterson

          really? you signed a contract that stated the company must finish the product before releasing a new product? thats weird because i didn’t know those contracts existed for a wifi only device. i didn’t even know they existed for a 3g or 4g device with a 2 year contract. because the 2 year contract you sign into is to make sure you stay with them for at least 2 years and continue to pay. it never says they must finish the product. they did say they will release 4g for the xoom 1 and they never said they wouldn’t.

      Why? products are always improved. Pissed because they have something better now? grow up thats life.

    • SparkysShocker

      Oh no they re-designed my car I’ve only had for 6 months, oh no they re-designed my washer and dryer…oh no they re-designed my computer. You know what they haven’t re-designed in awhile tissue so grab some and cry about your issues.

      Nah, if you were, the technology would be held back so they had something else to release at the next yearly conference.

      Guys, it’s probably not coming till Q4. Things get replaced/upgraded all the time. 

      • NovaeMeme

        Yeah, or it could also be the 7 inch version.  I’m pretty sure I recall Moto saying they were coming out with another size.

      Moto is going to make new devices?  Some of them sequels?  They could be a year away or more?  Maybe not be made at all?  The pictures may not resemble any future product at all?

      OK, so not news, just usual rumor stuff just with renders that may have no meaning.  

      So can the Xoom crybabies please sign off now?
