Motorola Xoom 2 family to carry LTE, too rough for near-term

Motorola Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 MEseen side by side

Motorola's Xoom 2 and smaller Xoom 2 ME have been spotted again in a rare side-by-side look with additional details. Both are now known to be about as thick as each other at roughly 9.3mm but wouldn't necessarily sacrifice features if Engadget is correct. Both would have LTE-based 4G, and both would also have Android 3.2 and five-megapixel cameras.

The two might miss 2011 entirely, however. Either Xoom is said to be "buggy as all hell" and prone to showstopping bugs that crash or reboot the tablets frequently. If they miss the current year, however, they may ship with Ice cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) instead.

Motorola is poised to equip the two with dual-core 1.2GHz processors and faster RAM. At least the Media Edition could come with a much higher-quality IPS panel and improve the color richness along with wider viewing angles. The Xoom 2 will be a more direct sequel where the Media Edition is seen as a crossover that would compete with the Nook Color and Amazon Kindle tablet at the higher end.
