Rumor: Motorola Preparing Ice Sandwich Tablet With Ridiculous Resolution

Ahh yes, the rumor of the day that seems to be taking the internet by storm.  What would you guys think about a new Motorola tablet that is thinner than the original XOOM, runs a Kal-El NVIDIA quad-core processor, Ice Cream Sandwich, and has a ridiculously high 4:3 (2048×1536) resolution?  Sound too good to be true or possibly just odd as all hell?  Yeah, we’re scratching our heads too.

But that’s today’s rumor though.  Apparently Moto has been working on this beast for quite some time and has already sent it to some testers to play with.  There is even a chance that it’ll be available some time this year – again, according to this rumor.

So what do we think?  Well, it seems sort of odd that Moto has had Ice Cream Sandwich and a tablet with a Kal-El processor “for a while.”  Now, there is a chance that they have been selected to be the first quad-core tablet to run the newest version of Android, but they already received that honor with Honeycomb and the Tegra 2.  Some of the facts make a little sense in this story, yet so many of them seem so odd along with the timing which is incredibly questionable.  A lot of questions, that’s for sure.

What do you guys think?

    I just wish my desktop monitor was 2048*1536… Sadly, it’s not. And neither is my next monitor…

    4:3? that sounds kinda fishy… everythings going towards 16:9 now…

  • Johnny1245

    I hope this is as killer the Xoom, for all it’s falts, nothiing but the ipad could compare with original Xoom.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

    Will Ice Sandwich be released at the same time as Ice Cream Sandwich? Is it a lite version, or a more advanced version of Android?  I thought the next version of Android would start with the letter J?

    ;p

      could be wrong but last i checked the letter I was parked right in between h and j.

    This being Motorola, it will be

    1) a well built product, in terms of feel, solid
    2) it will be overpriced
    3) it will be delayed
    4) it will have more bugs than a cheap motel during mardi gras
    5) and for some unknown reason will ship with an early, buggy build of Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and not the stable release
    6) Finally, they will come up with some cockamany way to screw up what should have been the best tablet on the market

    I want 4:3

  • Tom Cullen

    a news/rumor article with the words motorola AND ridiculous in the same sentence? yep, i can believe it.

  • Beka27

    It’ll be available for the super low price of $1200…

  • Arthur

    4:3 = Fail. iPad is 4:3, it’s not a selling point though, nobodies buying the iPad for the 4:3 resolution. Moto copies the wrong features, they might as well blur this thing to hell. I ain’t buying it.

      I agree, as a multimedia device, web surfing, video’s, movies, tv shows, games and anything landscape is much better in 16:9  watch a movie on the iPad and look at those huge chunky black bars.  

      4:3 is only good for portrait only functions.

    Hmm. I don’t like 4:3 format, but maybe Motorola is doing this in order to make apps from Ipad easier to port to Xoom. Honeycomb lacks apps now so this may be an advantage. Maybe it will be also possible to emulate some 1024×768 Ipad apps on new Xoom. It would be much more difficult to do this if Xoom had different aspect ratio. Also new Ipad should have the same resolution (is 2x1024x768) so again app compatibility might be easier to achieve.

    That resolution would be ridiculous on a 10″ screen, completely unnecessary.  4:3 aspect ratio sucks too.  16:10 or bust.

    • Jamdev12

      I completely agree with you on that. What strikes me is that we know Kalel with its 4 cores was working hard trying to do a lot of graphic intensive physics on a 1280 x 800 Res. This new Res would kill its performance at the expense of adding more pexils? That doesn’t make much sense to me. Why Stevey Jobsy left his prime iMaxiPad2 the way it was in terms of resolution with the advancement on the internal side to give it a significant performance boost over the previous iteration.

    Im sure it will be made to pair up real nicely with the new Bionic!!

    It could be true, the public doesnt hear about new technology till it’s about to drop in upcoming devices.  Corporations already have technology that won’t be coming out for the next 10 years probably.  In my opinion, I think it’s true, dropping this year?…prolly not.

    Ditch the 4:3 but make it insanely high res (and fix the issue with ghosting) and this thing will sell its self to me. Light, thin, strong, long battery life, great screen…iPad gonna get owned. Also Moto needs a nifty dock like the Transform, shoot, I could leave my laptop on my desk virtually all the time if I had this thing. MOTO MAKE IT!

    And now we know why it’s taking so long for Motorola to get a good, working version of GingerBlur on their phones. They’ve moved on.

    What do I think? I think they should release the Bionic to see if they have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning back the loyalty of the OG owners. Everything that made the OG Droid great they have abandoned and if Bionic fails to impress that not only lose my business, but the business of everyone that comes to me for tech advice from here on out. Seriously, release the damn phone already!
