Motorola has announced two new tablets, the Motorola Xoom 2 and the Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition, are available in the UK and Ireland.
The two devices are similar in specifications: Both come with Android 3.2 and have a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage memory and a 5-megapixel camera on the back as well as a 1.3-megapixel one on the front for video chats.
There are three major differences, though: The Xoom 2 has a 10.1-inch screen and a better battery, allowing for 10 hours of “web usage,” which it pays for with its heavy weight of 599 grams.
Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition, on the other hand, has a 8.2-inch screen and a battery that allows for 6 hours of web usage, and only weighs 386 grams. Motorola also mentions its graphics performance will be 20% better than the original Xoom tablet.
The Wi-Fi variants of Motorola Xoom 2 and Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition will be available in the UK and Ireland in mid-November; the price and availability in other parts of the world is yet to be announced.
