New Motorola XOOM 2 Tablets Shipping in November?

Famed supply channel watcher DigiTimes, is reporting that two new Motorola XOOMs will ship in November and December of this year.  While we have seen both 10.1″ and 8.2″ models, their sources claim that a 7″ version is on the way – we will go ahead and assume that they are wrong on that.  Both tablets have been revamped to be much slimmer and potentially with higher quality HD screens.  Opinions on whether the new look is the hotness or not are all over the board, we are just hoping the price isn’t.

This time frame makes sense, especially since we have heard Moto CEO Sanjay Jha claim that they will have new tablets by the end of the year, time and time again.  He also has mentioned a number of times that they will have more “aggressive form factors” going forward.  I’d say we could easily see two new tablets for the holidays.  Again, let’s hope the price is right.

    You know how car companies will disguise their new models with hideous looking plastic bolt-ons so nobody knows for sure what it’s going to look like when it hits the showroom?  I sure hope Moto is doing that with this Xoom.  If not, I might be going to look at an iPad…

  • Chris G

    What I want to know is when is Google coming out with a tablet like the Nexus phones.  Something we can be assured of having the latest and greatest in a timely fashion.

    November? September is almost out and still no LTE upgrade to the Xoom. Are we forgetting our priorities here Moto, you’re already extremely late as it is and about to miss another deadline. First things first Moto!

    • DAVPX

      Oh and by the way, isn’t this just about the ugliest tablet you’ve ever seen?

      I just called 611 and was batching because my local store didn’t have any lte Sims for me to reactivate my Charge, long story short I asked the person if they had any details about the lte upgrade for the XOOM, she sounded like she was reading from a web page and said starting tomorrow the 29th your XOOM will be eligible for an lte upgrade, anyone do any fishing on this? At work now so limited.

    Oh, this definitely has class-action lawsuit written all over it. Companies that make false advertising promises to sell a product need to be held accountable. It’s simply not the right way to do business. It’s wrong and it’s against the law, plain and simple. The FTC would have a field day with this. In fact, here’s the link to file a complaint against Verizon Wireless: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/FTC_Wizard.aspx?Lang=en

    Screw this. Where’s my LTE for my XOOM 1? Really is ridiculous.

    What in the hell do you need 4 cores for?  Are you designing graphics for Call of Duty 97?  There is absolutley no need for 4 cores on a tablet.  The only desktop PC’s that need 4 cores are forr graphic design and other heavy use things Get over it people.  Very very very very few apps/programs are optimized for DUAL core, let along quad.

      go learn something, as well as the other games that have been announced to be made for quad-core only.

      • Bionic

        LOL, ok so a few games? Are you telling me that said games wont run with Dual core? If a game needs 4 cores, wouldnt that game be pretty complex? Complex in needing a joystick and many other controls? Last time I checked people were not using tablets for major gaming.

        Im not saying having quad core wouldnt be cool, im just saying I really dont see the NEED for it.

  • trumpet444

    I do not see a lot of Xoom1 owners buying this, as Motorola pissed off every one of them. I dont own a Xoom and I will not be buying a Xoom2 solely because of the way Moto treated their “premium early adopters”. Screw Moto

    • Bionic

      blah blah blah.  

    • Shifterracer

      i agree…i won’t be buying this or any other moto device.  when i bought my xoom i really wanted the bionic.  After moto scewed me on the xoom i’m now waiting for the samsung prime to come out.

    After D1, I did not like any Moto products…. sorry moto… the competition has much better products. I am waiting for Samy 10.2 II

  • Reedme

    Quad-core?

  • Mike

    Has anyone successfully complained and returned their Xoom to Best Buy due to the lack of the 4G upgrade? I’m really tempted to try. This isn’t the product I purchased as advertised.

    • Binglut9

      Someone Tweed they complained to verizon and verizon gave them a galaxy tab lte…I’m temted to try this but I really don’t want touchwiz

      • http://smartic.us bryanl

        I don’t think the LTE Galaxy Tabs have Touchwiz

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/RXFWXDUWRRHCGFV6NP2SDZ7YLU Ray

        I promise I’m going to try that if this comes out before i get 4g

  • Augie

    Now if they would just upgrade our Verizon Xoom’s to Xoom 2 as the LTE upgrade we have all been waiting to see. Wishful thinking…….

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Forte/542650247 Michael Forte

    Are they going to actually have LTE enabled when it ships this time? And where’s my 4G LTE upgrade for my Xoom, Moto? Give me one of these in exchange for my Xoom and we’ll call it even.

    • Jason

      Was thinking the smae thing! For the few of us that bought the Xoom 1 with all there empty promises should be able to trade ours in for one of the new ones! xoom was the first time I ever jumped the gun and bought something new when it first came out instead of waiting to see how things panned out. Will probably be my last.

  • Interstellarmind

    i’m sorry, but moto cannot be forgiven for the first xoom/ LTE debacle.

    they straight up LIED to consumers.

    • Billy Jenkins

      Thats why u dont buy a product unless it has everything u want. If 4g on the xoom is so important to u then why would u spend $800 fr a 3g only Xoom when u can just wait a year for the price to go down and buy the xoom with 4g for like $500. or if the xoom 1 will never get the 4g update then instead of buying an $800 3g only Xoom 1 just wait a year or 2 for the 4g update or for the Xoom 2 which will most likely come with 4g. and if it doesnt then wait for one of the 2 devices to get the upgrade. or just dont buy either if 4g is that important to u.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=760082801 John Hoffman

        Because, when we bought the XOOM, they said LTE upgrade was “within weeks” Now it appears it will never happen. It’s like buying a car they promised to put a bigger engine in in a few weeks if you buy it saying you will be the first car with this new engine. Then they never give it to you and come out with newer models for less money. They simply lied!

        • Billy Jenkins

          They also said the Froyo update would be released within weeks. Months later it finally started getting pushed to phones after many people already rooted and updated themselves. And I’m sure and almost positive that wasn’t the first time Motorola did that. Yet you still bought a Xoom hping for a 4g upgrade which Motorola said would be released within week after the froyo incident. Consider this a lesson not to buy an $800 device unless it has every single thing u want. or at least every single thing it said it should have including 4g and sd card support. Thats why I’m waiting a few months for the price to drop more then it already has and buy the Xoom for $400 or $500 and with 4g. instead of the same Xoom u bought for $800 and with 3g only.

          Find someone who paid retail for the Droid Eris if you want to see how promises are broken.

      it really makes me wonder why people on this site seems to love motorola so much. i just dont get whats to like. it really blows my mind. sanjay jha is a liar and a horrible ceo. all motorola phones i have ever owned are ugly, buggy lagging crap. people could switch to samsung but instead they would rather have pentile matrix over superamoled plus, and blur over touchwiz (its debatable but i prefer touchwiz). the only android phone from them i really liked is the OG droid. i just dont get it.

      • trumpet444

        The leftover love is from the OG. That is all. I love my OG and I always will. It was the first and last thing Moto did well

        Because this site’s main dedication is to “Droids” aka. Motorola devices. Android life is for everything else. Not knocking ya, just pointing that out. This site was born when the Motorola Droid came out. Its followers are Motorola and Verizon fans. All the other posts are simply fillers in-between Droid news.

          I can name a few Droids that aren’t Motorola…
          Droid Eris, Droid Incredible, Droid Incredible 2, And Droid Charge

  • Jay96815

    For those of us who have the original Xoom – it would be nice if they got off their butts and made good on those promises.  Has anyone gotten their 4G/LTE upgrade besides those “special” people that were put at the front of the line?

    • Gdogmcstyles

      Nope.  Just sent a scathing email to BestBuy about it!

      • http://www.facebook.com/japultra Jason Nguyen

        It’s not Best Buy’s fault….

        • Gdogmcstyles

          They sold the product under false pretenses….so yep, sure is!  Thanks Jason!  You rock!  : )

      • Billy Jenkins

        maybe u shouldnt have bought the xoom if it didnt have everything u wanted. like 4g. so its no ones fault but your own. its not even motorolas fault.

        • Gdogmcstyles

          Hey Billy, sweet input bro!  Man, thanks!  Thank god you told me!

        • Binglut9

          Every comment you make is idiotic your commenting privledges should be provoked

          • Billy Jenkins

            how are my comments idiotic? I think the only thing idiotic thing is buying an $800 Xoom with 3g only and actually believing Motorola that 4g will be released in a few weeks but then complain when once again they lie. lol. I find that funny.

          • Billy Jenkins

            Oh and I forgot to mention the Droid Bionic in the list of lies and problems. Remember? How Motorola delayed the Bionic many times over a 1 year period? I would think everyone would be used to Motorolas lies instead of supporting them by spending $800 on something thats lacking a few features

          • dur

            and yours should be revoked

      • Mike

        Why not redirect that scathing email to Moto?

        • Gdogmcstyles

          Moto can’t do anything to help me on this exchange as I bought it through Best Buy.  Like where your head’s at though!  The whole thing is such a kick in the balls to the loyalest of loyal Android fans.  Poor form.

      The check is in the mail
