Technology News for the Masses
The Motorola Xoom released months ago, which boasted lots of high hopes and features, fell flat to Motorola’s hopes for their iPad killer. However now Motorola and Verizon are hinting at a Xoom 2, which is rumored to have much more features like the newest Android OS called Ice Cream Sandwich and a high-resolution display of 2048×1536 pixels. In addition to the Xoom 2, the Xoom 1 will be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich, and will be the first tablet to upgrade to Android 4.0. The Xoom 2, shown in the Verizon ad below, is also rumored to boast a Tegra 3 Quad-core processor, which will create blazing fast speeds on the Xoom. The Xoom 2 is also suppose to have a 4:3 aspect ratio, which looks much better on tablets than the 16:9 ratio which the Xoom has. The Xoom 2 might arrive quite soon, as the Verizon ad probably hints at the new Xoom. The tablet shown in the ad seems to have Xoom-ish features, like a rugged body and a ridged pattern on the back. However, it seems to have smoother edges and a rubber top part. All that is left to do is to wait and see when Motorola will make their move: now, soon, or never?
