December 6, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Motorola’s latest devices Droid 4 and Xoom 2 Media Edition have been circulating in the tech news for some time. We had informed you about both and now we have fresh information that the beauties have been sighted before the FCC doors.

In the FCC filings, an unannounced Motorola QWERTY handset was verified with “slider open” and “slider closed” configurations. The phone sporting the dual-mode roaming functionality shows the support for Verizon’s LTE and CDMA bands and also the GSM, EDGE and WCDMA networks.

A 1785 mAh battery was reported powering the device.  Going by these details and the previous stories, we assume that the handset might be the Droid 4.

Meanwhile, the tablet pointed in the FCC documents was found compatible with AT&T’s (850 / 1900) GSM / WCDMA bands. It is believed that the device is the 3G version of the Xoom 2 Media Edition as the Verizon’s Xyboard with LTE and CDMA bands had already passed the FCC certifications a few days ago.

Based on the previous leaked details, Droid 4, running Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, sports a 4-inch qHD screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and a five-row illuminated slide-out QWERTY keyboard. An 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording and a HD front-facing snapper for video calling is integrated in the handset.

This is speculated to be the 8.2-inch version of the Xoom 2 that is the Media Edition. The 0.35-inch thin Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet comes with a 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory and dual cameras: a 5-megapixel rear snapper with LED flash and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter for video chatting.

Though the Droid 4 is rumored to have a December 8 launch, details on the Xoom 2 Media Edition release date is still hidden.
