Motorola Xoom 2 Makes It’s Debut in the U.K. and Ireland Tablet Market

Motorola is going to re-enter the tablet market of U.K. and Ireland  with Motorola Xoom 2. Xoom 2 is being revealed in 2 flavors — a traditional 10-inch Xoom 2 and an 8.2-inch Xoom 2 Media Edition. The traditional version comes with built-in options and is fit for business users while the media edition is best for media addicts.

Both these tabs are powered with 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, run Android 3.2 Honeycomb and provide Wi-Fi connectivity. The displays of both tablets are made by Gorilla Glass and are also covered with a special splash-guard coating which makes them more durable and stain resistant.

Both sport a 5 Mega-pixel rear facing camera while a 1.3 Mega-pixel front facing shooter. Cameras are powered by digital zoom, auto focus, and LED flash. Both these tabs have got a 1GB RAM and 16GB storage capacity.

According to Motorola, Xoom 2 is similar in shape and size to the original Xoom. But it has got a brighter and more vibrant display. The edges of tablet are designed with a flattened edge that’s supposed to make the tablet easier to hold. The battery of Xoom 2 (traditional edition) promises to give a back up of up to 10 hours on a single charge.

Both versions of Xoom 2 have got a new MotoCast app that allows users to wirelessly stream music, photos, videos, and other content between their tablets and their PCs. A special “Work and Play” kit allows users to connect their tabs to HDTV and control them via a bluetooth keyboard or mouse.

For business users, Xoom 2 comes pre-loaded with several useful functions like data encryption, VPN support, and Active Sync for synchonizing e-mail, contacts, and calendar appointments. It also includes both USB and Ethernet ports.

The media edition is primarily created for entertainment. The screen of media edition offers a 178 degree viewing angle to let multiple users watch movies on same time. Motorola says that graphics perform 20% faster and there’s added support of virtual surround sound in the device, which makes game play a lot better. There’s also a pre-loaded remote app which allows you to control your TV through your tablet. The battery offers only a six hours back up on a full charge.
