What, you may be asking, is the point of unveiling a tablet alongside one that’s touted as being the “Media Edition”? Shouldn’t all tablets have media at its heart? Funnily enough, the Media Edition is smaller, at 8.2-inches, with the Xoom 2 clocking in at 10.1-inches.
Both tablets sound very similar, with their dual-core 1.2GHz processors; Android 3.2 (Honeycomb), and Gorilla Glass displays. But there the small differences start: the 10.1-inch Xoom 2 has a brighter display than the original Xoom, and weighs 100 grams lighter too. Battery life is listed at 10 hours for video playback too, so you’re well-protected for European flights, at least.
While both tablets have been announced for UK and Ireland, we haven’t heard a peep from Motorola Australia (or USA for that matter). We’ll update you when we know more.
