Motorola’s Xoom tablet didn’t really fly off the shelves when they launched it, and that probably won’t be fixed much even after they shaved $100 off the price. They’re not going to take it sitting down though. It looks like they’re already working to fix… whatever went wrong with the first Xoom. According to Fudzilla, Motorola is already testing a prototype for the Xoom’s sequel (the Xoom 2? The Xoom-Xoom, perhaps?).
The full list of the tablet’s specifics weren’t revealed, but they did manage to report on a few juicy tidbits. According to the report, the new slate will still keep the original’s 10-inch screen size, but will ditch the wide aspect ratio and use a 4:3 screen. The tablet will be geared to run on Android 4.0, or “Ice Cream Sandwich,” and they’ll be raising the resolution to 2048 x 1536, with graphics handled by NVIDIA’s quad-core Kal-El processor.
Looks pretty juicy so far, although that screen and chipset sounds like they’re going to be trying to peddle another expensive tablet when this one comes out. No word on a release date yet, but the source mentioned that it could be released later this year.
