Two New XOOM Models Appear at Verizon as the “Pasteur” and “Fleming”

Over the last week, Verizon’s Cellebrite systems were filled with a handful of devices that we are expecting to see in the coming months.  The Nexus Prime, DROID HD, and HTC Vigor all popped up the other day, but now we are seeing two new XOOM models as well.

The first is MZ617 “Pasteur”, which is the XOOM 2 that we gave you the first photos of a couple of weeks back.  This is the follow-up to the original that will reportedly pack a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of “faster” RAM, record 1080p HD video, and last for up to 11 hours on a single charge.

The next device we are seeing is the MZ609 “Fleming” which we are guessing is the smaller 7″ XOOM 2 “Media Edition.”  We haven’t seen this code name or model number yet, but with photos of a little brother appearing a few times now, we can’t imagine it would be anything else.

So there you go – two new code names to start Googlin’.

Cheers ___!

    Louis Pasteur, the man who invented Pasteurizaton :)  An odd, but interesting name for a tablet.

    Hoping a big nosedive in price of the OG Xoom when these hit. Still too expensive.

    Depending on cost I may pick this up. Curious when it will release and with what.

      I agree they are absolutely horrible.

    I don’t care about the XOOM…but yay for weekend updates!!!

    No quad core? No thanks. I’ve already got my Xoom and won’t be trading it until I see a quad core on the table.

      Especially since the wifi one gets its updates straight from google, instead of waiting for an oem. Glow ball looks awesome, and steam was conducting a survey of people who gamed on their mobiles. It would be interesting to see what starts popping up when a tablet has decent graphics.

        Aye, I’m loving my updates within an hour of when Google releases them. A device like that is the best to have.

      Waiting for the quad core tablets.  Maybe Samsung will release one (and an SD card slot)?

    They’re naming their devices after chemists and Biologists now? Man they really did run out of good names. lol

  • Dan

    I would be interested in a sub $300 7″ xoom

    Awesome!! But those are some really lame code names

    • Guest

      I guess they are lame if you consider the inventor of penicillin and the inventor of pasteurization (among many other things) lame.  Please tell us, what have you done with your life to improve humanity?

          I’m not a troll.  I visit here quite often just not signed in.  But you’re an idiot.  You get stuck on a word and miss the whole point.

        They’re not code names, from what it looks like they’re the actual names of the devices. How do you know it’s a reference to Louis Pasteur? It could be a reference to anything for all you know. Also do you really want to go around saying “Look at my new Motorola Pasteur (or Fleming)!”, it just sounds ridiculous. These definitely beat out the HTC Rezound for the stupiest name contest.
