Mystery Honeycomb Tablet Appears in New Verizon Ad (Updated)

It’s definitely not a XOOM or the new Galaxy Tab 10.1, so what is it?  It very well could be nothing, and just a place holding device that would allow them to put together an ad without paying out to Motorola or Samsung?  Odd, really.  The Verizon coverage bar that they quickly show looks like something straight out of a iDevice, but it’s definitely running Honeycomb.  You guys tell me.

Update:  Oh!  And the video is now set to private…and I was an idiot and didn’t grab a screenshot of the front which clearly showed the Honeycomb lock screen and opening home screen.

Update 2:  It looks like a Motorola device.  Has an identical speaker to a XOOM, but the device is too upright to actually be it.  The camera is also different and the device lacks the Motorola “M” in the middle.  Again, this could just be some random place holder, but there are rumors of a new XOOM being worked on.  Kal-el here we come?  Ok, let’s not go that far.  Keep the  guesses coming!

Does Verizon have a new tablet to announce that it has been keeping from us?

    To me it looks similar to the HTC tablets. If you look at the HTC View/Flyer it has a similar backplate and camera placement. This could be the HTC Puccini as it also shares the form-factor curves edges to the Tablet shown in the video. The Puccini is HTC’s new 10″ Tablet coming this Fall.

    Vid is back up! Definitely not a known tablet, none of the current tablets have a camera/top design like that while in portrait orientation.  I agree with those thinking it could be XOOM2, possibly an Ice Cream Sandwich launch device? (fingers crossed it has Kal-el)
