The latest is that a device that could be the new Motorola Xoom LTE tablet has visited the FCC. Now that means the device is all set for launch. An LTE enabled Xoom has been in the offing, we know as customers seemed to be clamoring for one.

Going by what see in the FCC documents here, the device has been listed as IHDP56LU2. Though this nomenclature doesn’t give away anything as expected, a closer look will reveal that the device that has just passed clearance is the Motorola Xoom 2.
