More XOOM 2 Pictures Leak Alongside Its Smaller “Media Edition” Cousin, LTE for Both

Either Motorola decided this past weekend was the perfect time to leak their entire holiday lineup or their testers couldn’t care less about all of those NDAs they just signed.  We brought you the first pictures of the Motorola XOOM 2, but a whole new set of photos appeared a day later in a different color alongside the smaller “Media” version.  In a much more inviting grey or taupe, these versions are looking more and more impressive by the minute.  You can see the “HD” camera that sits on the back, their incredibly thin bodies, and the volume rocker and power switch.  LTE capabilities have reportedly been confirmed.

Set of pictures after the break.  

*Note – While I believe 100% of everything that is in these photos, I can’t help but point out that the comparison picture to the iPhone looks a little strange.  Or maybe the tipster just needed to blur out everything in the background?  Odd.

    ………………………I just got a $827.89 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use http://alturl.com/vs49a

  • Chuckg73

    So is this the same 4G/LTE that I currently do not have on my 4G/LTE Xoom????

  • Guest

    I wonder what the two slots at the back top left and right are for?  A new front cover that flips around?

    Disclaimer: I am not an apple fanboy. I actually dislike iOS. I have had 4 Android devices. But I respect all tech…

    For a tab to succeed it has to offer the general consumer more than the ipad2 does. The general consumer doesn’t care about flash. They care about dependability, app selections, functionality, ease of use, and prices. If this thing is priced the same or higher price than ipad2 it will fail. If the battery is poorer than ipad2 it will fail. If it is slower and has any type of bugs it will fail. The ipad2 doesn’t have many flaws, except the inherent problems with iOS that all us tech geeks know about but the general consumer could care less about.

    Looks like a USB charger? or they just placed the proprietary one in a different spot…

    Is it just me or are these things ugly as hell?

      Nope, not just you!

      I was going to say that too… I don’t get it, they see that Apple is succeeding because they keep their design as simple as possible, and they instead make it three-tone colored, with different bumps, and chrome trims and buttons everywhere, and licensing and rights info all over the back.

      Samsung is doin’t it right at least.

        Motorola doesnt want any lawsuits. It probably shocked the hell outta Motorola for the Xoom to be named in a lawsuit for copying the iPad…and want to make sure that doesnt happen again anytime soon.

  • Xoom 2 to be called “fail 2”

  • Reedme

    Quad-core!  I am holding out for a quad-core tablet, as dual-core tablets will be obsolete (and much cheaper) very soon.  Hopefully the dual-core processor in the Xoom 2 is an incorrect rumor.  No way I am paying wha Motorla will charge for Xoom 2 with a dual-core processor.

    • Bionic

      what in the holy hell do you need 4 cores for?  yes its nice, but what the hell do you need it for?  Its just like a quad core phone, what the hell do you need quad for?  dual i totally understand, but 4 cores?  Are designing graphics for a new playstion game on your tablet?  I think not.  

      dual core is plenty.

    So these will be out before I get 4g on my OG XOOM… Right??

    • Hamman

      Of course.  Our reward for being early and enthusiastic adopters is a big fat nothing.  Thanks Verizon.

    so that’s how moto plans on ugrading original xoom users to xoom 2… they plan on making us buy a new tablet… GENIUS!

  • I like the smaller one’s size and look.

    • that’s what she said…

      • shdowman

        That’s what he made her believe…

        • Marvinaire

          thats what she said he made her believe XD

  • The comparison looks like it’s from a handout.

  • Jason Purp

    Obviously it’s just a plain old table and there’s nothing on it to hide, meaning that the picture could have possibly been Photoshopped and blurred out to hide the obvious flaws in the picture.

    On another note, I want some new info on the Prime and Vigor today. Get to work, Kellex 😉

  • Still waiting for LTE on my OG Droid Moto… WTF!?!  haha. I think I like the design. It set’s them apart from all other tablets at the moment. Someones got to be pissed at Motorola that these leaked though.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t care if it makes smoothies…if the price ain’t right, it will flop like all the others.

    I’ll just patiently wait for the fire sale.

  • Michael Nash

    Why are they comparing it to an Idon’t anyway?

    • I think to show how thin they are.  Although they make it hard to tell, it does look to be thinner than the glasspacker in the shot.  The obsession of manufacturerers on “thinness” is getting to be insane; at some point, thin becomes more difficult to handle vs reduced weight, which is always welcome.

      I might be interested in the 8.x” version as an ebook reader, but if the price isn’t significantly under $300 (yeah, right) it’s not worth it. 

      Heck, if in 6 months Win8 ARM tablets are $600 or less, NONE of these will be worth it – a limited-use OS like Android is just not going to cut it vs a full desktop OS if those things live up to their potential.

        true statement of the year… and I’m obsessed with android.. if Win8 is what they say it will be (grain of salt with MS) Win8 will murder all tablets

    “LTE Capabilities have reportedly been confirmed…” That’s what Moto said about my OG Xoom…

      I was willing to deal with delays.  I was willing to deal with certain people getting it first.  But now the 4G for the OG Xoom has gotten quiet, and they are leaking Xoom 2 stuff.  What the ever living baby dragon Jesus

      I really wish people would stop putting “OG” in front of anything other than the 1st Moto Droid.

        OG – I’m just going to start all posts with OG now.  (And end them that way.) – OG

      the thing about being “first”, is you actually have to be “first” for it to make sense…

    the actual term is “couldn’t care less”. “could care less” is not the correct usage given the message you are trying to convey.

      agreed, to me “could care less” means you care, and their is a possibility you “could care less” than you already do

    • Anonymous

      ‘Could care less’ implies(actually implicitly states) that you care a bit, and have room left to not care. 

      ‘Couldn’t care less’ means you care so little you that if you cared less you’d have to be completely unaware.

      Anyway, being a soldier in grammar police aside, I’d just like to stop here and say….

      WTF Moto, giving LTE on the original Xoom to a small subset of entitled users is NOT enough to appease the rest of Xoom owners so we won’t be pissed now that you are leaking this without even e-mailing me about LTE.

        that’s about as accurate a definition as you’ll get; though i didn’t have the patience, or inkling, to go that much into detail. good to see you around again TD.

      “it looks too “busy””

      alternative apparently is to get too “sued”.

      I have always hated when people say it that way. That being said, I have to disagree and say I love the design of the new Xoom. Very “sexy.”
