It seems like the Motorola Xoom was just released and fighting for its position as a leader in the tablet category. Low and behold the folks at Motorola couldn’t keep the secret out for long that they are planning on soon releasing a bigger, badder, Motorola Xoom2.
While the ad spot wasn’t super specific on when the Motorola Xoom 2 and it’s accessories would officially be released, the intense competition the Xoom is getting from the Ipad2 and other recent entries is sure to make them take action sooner that later. Another reason that Motorola may be chomping at the bit to get the latest Xoom to market is the July release of the HP Touchpad. This highly anticipated tablet is getting a lot of buzz through many different consumer segments and Motorola can’t afford to sit and watch another tablet take away its slice of market share.
There is always a chance that the Motorola tablet that was featured in the leaked ad is just another tablet used as a placeholder representing the power of the Verizon network, but there are many Motorola Xoom Accessories and features that make us believe it is in fact a good possibility the tablet that is shown is the Motorola Xoom 2.
Lets hope that Motorola learns a few things about how to compete in the super competitive tablet world. While many people don’t have a problem with the Motorola Xoom and the great accessories that were released in the original, they do have a problem with the poor choices for sales channels and insane pricing at first glance. With the Vizio Tablet soon to hit Wal-Mart for around $350.00, Motorola has it’s work cut out to demonstrate what kind of value they can bring to the table to be competitively priced spec for spec.
