XOOM 2 Media Edition Details and Pictures Leak

Talk about a weekend of huge leaks.  First, we released the first ever pictures of the Motorola XOOM 2 followed by news that the HTC Vigor is looking like it will end up as the Rezound at launch.  Then press images or renders of the DROID RAZR appeared with a potentially smaller XOOM 2 called the “Media Edition” just behind it.

Both Engadget and This is my next received word on this new smaller XOOM 2 which could have an 8.2″ HD IPS display with anti-glare coating.  As you can see from the photos, this is more of a portrait-style tablet that may end up as more of a reader than a powerhouse like the full-sized XOOM 2.  It is also being reported that this device will have an IR blaster and weigh less than a pound.  

Via:  Engadget, This is my next

    Who is going to buy another Motorola tablet after the way Moto failed on the first Xoom? Seriously. They haven’t even give customers an idea of when they will upgrade that pile of shit to LTE. And they have proven that they’re oblivious to customer feedback, since they insist on putting blur on everything.

    They need to focus on one tablet. Get one tablet right then think about making a second.

    • Chris

      This can be applied to the smartphones as well.

        Yes I agree. The manufacturers and service providers are hindering Android. I would say about 40% of all Android devices are buggy or have some sort of critical issue.

    Motorola should change the name and the color of their new tablet so that potential customers will even consider it.  Anything associated with “xoom” will probably fail.

      Shut up

  • Kerst01

    Here’s an idea. How about instead of pushing out another device,they hurry the hell up and 4G upgrade those of us who bought the first xoom?!

    Is it me, or does this look almost like the one the chick in the VZW commercial from a few months back?
    Lets fire up the way back machine and go to post: http://www.droid-life.com/2011/06/16/mystery-honeycomb-tablet-appears-in-new-verizon-ad/

    Great, looks like they are skinning it. For those stupid icon changes, users can look forward to waiting an extra couple months on point updates, if they even see them at all.

    oh look, BLUR for tablets. its just what we all wanted, now can have all the lag and bugs from our phones software on our XOOM.

    …btw droid-life your a bit late on this article, engadget had this story covered a full 24 hours ago.

    • Fyrenzy

      droid life also covered the moto xoom2 24hrs ago. this is a rehash, talking about everything else that came out and addition info. you would know that if you read the article. or even read previous articles. scroll down the page and find the stuff posted about the xoom2 from yesterday. moronic troll.

  • Wunderwaffe

      no its blur

  • Gettingtooold4rumors

    I feel like there are so many rumors/leaks but nothing is getting confirmed/released (except bionic which was a disappointment for me).

  • Rohicks

    ew.
    Why wouldn’t they make the glass expandable to the edge.
    I don’t need borders on a tablet; this isn’t a picture frame.

      You actually do need borders to hold it comfortably.

  • Jason Purp

    Are those Motoblur icons…

            I am hoping that Google will have a hand in some of the software and making it more stable than it has been… I have faith in both “giants”

            Moto will be just fine. I cant wait for what droid razor has to offer.

  • Bigred

    Bad ass

  • Bionic

    If I could get a XOOM, any version, brand new, for around $300 id be sold.  But i guess ill keep dreaming.  

  • Anonymous

    so does the xoom 2 have quad core? pretty much a deal breaker if it doesn’t…

    • Bionic

      im sure it prolly does.  but why is it a deal breaker?  My personal computer only has dual core and its awesome.

    well someone sound the death knell because im looking at it and Motorola has finally messed up and laid “the Motorola experience” aka moto blur over it …….oh well it was good while it lasted …..

  • Mrpicolas

    Lol I think the moto tablet screens are to dim even at full brightness. Just my 2 cents

    • Anonymous

      I agree fo sho.
      PS. I’d change that “to” to “too” before you get trolled. :D

  • AroundTheFur

    It seems like something you’d see on the Deathstar. The dark side always had cooler stuff than those fruit eating, Jedi hippies.
