Did The XOOM 2 Just Pass Through The FCC?

A mystery Motorola device just cruised through the FCC and it may have been the XOOM 2. The device is marked with an FCC ID of 56MJ3, which marks it as part of Moto’s flagship tablet line. The documents state the this mystery device will sport a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, HDMI out and have a 1200 x 800 display. Additionally, it will be available in 16, 32 and 64GB models and has both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.

Could this be the Motorola XOOM 2, or perhaps another variant of the original XOOM? However, the specs due resemble the leaked ones we posted a month ago, feel free to sound off in the comments.

    Dual-core? Thats so 2011. Asus Transformer Prime will be out before Xoom2 and will have Quad-Core.

    A Moto rep told me this would be the first LTE-Advanced tablet via upgrade.

    I love Android and all but frankly Android tablets have been a dud. I don’t blame app developers necessarily (namely because I am one) and because I feel Google hasn’t given us a reason to WANT one. Android runs great on a smartphone and now with ICS I get the best tablet features on my phone so why exactly do I want an Android tablet??

      isn’t that pretty much the argument for any tablet [non]purchase?  i love my xoom, but ever since i upgraded to a phone that can run apps well (and not having to uninstall ones before i can install new ones), i haven’t really picked it up too often.  it’s a big toy in the end.

        Yeah you’re right – I just don’t always feel totally connected on a tablet. I work on the road 3-4 days a week and my OG Droid is my best friend. I don’t ever turn on my work laptop. Even if I had a tablet I’m not sure if I’d ever use it.

    Wal-Mart has cleared its stock of xooms. I bought the 32gb di splay unitfor $230 .

    Seems like a pass since the Asus Transformer 2 will be coming out pretty soon.

    Hey Motorola: You better price this right out the door like $500 and release a wifi only one first or this will be a failed repeat of the Xoom all over again!

      Motorola and pricing are two things that never go together, example MotoACTV and XOOM.

      ………really??

      THATS the masses of people that are gonna buy ur beloved Galaxy Nexus right there. Have no idea whats the difference between a phone and a tablet. Good to know that ur “ZOMG TEH NFC!!” Jesus phone will mostly be used by people who can barely make a phone call without having to read the manual….let alone know what root means. A small handful(maybe 10,000 at most) will root it and ROM it while MILLIONS of others bought it because “its pretty”. 

      …..oh and it will solves world hunger because it has NFC….

    Waiting on quad-core proc to buy a tablet . . . .

    • Dominick DeVito

      Developers haven’t caught up to dual core for optimize apps, forget quad core.

        Once an app is optimized for multi-core does it matter if it is dual or quad?

        • Dominick DeVito

          90% of the time? No. But it all depends on how many threads a developer wants to throw at the tablet. I would imagine games will take advantage of this, but not in 2011, I would guess 2nd half 2012 at the earliest.

    Is it just me or has this been a boring DL day? Jesus, will you guys hypbeast something already!?

      No need for hypebeasting….the Droid Razr is the phone to end all phones.  It will outsell the Nexus 5 to 1 cause no one cares about unlocked bootloaders.

      • EC8CH

        count me as a 1
