Motorola unveils two new Honeycomb tablets for business and pleasure...
Motorola has unveiled two new tablets as a follow up to its original Xoom slate, launched earlier this year.
The two successors to the device are the aptly named Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition.
Both tablets run Android 3.2, known as Honeycomb, feature dual-core 1.2 GHz processors and have 16GB of storage.
There is a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and five-megapixel rear-facing camera fitted to both tablets.
The Xoom 2 comes with business software such as Citrix Receiver and Citrix GoToMeeting installed, and features ActiveSync for work email, contacts and calendar.
The Xoom 2's battery can withstand at least 10 hours of web usage and over one month on standby, according to Motorola.
At just under 600g, the Xoom 2 is 100g lighter than the original Xoom.
Like the first Xoom, the Xoom 2 also sports a 10.1-inch display.
The Xoom 2 Media Edition, pictured above, was designed to be easier to hold with one hand and so has a smaller screen than the Xoom 2, at 8.2 inches.
The smaller tablet also has less battery life than the Xoom 2 - able to withstand at least six hours of web usage.
Both tablets will be available in the UK from mid-November, costing £380 for the Xoom 2 and £330 for the Xoom 2 Media Edition.
