Motorola XOOM 2 and Media Edition Tablets Appear in Verizon Database

October 3, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Motorola’s upcoming tablets, the XOOM 2 and its smaller 8-inch brother nicknamed “Media Edition”, have been spotted in Verizon’s database. The tablets, which are expected to debut later this year, have appeared code-named “Pasteur” and “Fleming”.

As you might remember, Verizon’s Cellebrite database was filled with a handful of devices. We spotted the Nexus Prime, DROID HD, and HTC Vigor, and all these devices are expected to be launched in the coming months.


Now, the upcoming XOOM models have popped up as well. Both versions of the device will come equipped with up-to-date 4G radios and will feature a modified tapering corner design.

Earlier, it was thought that the new slates will run Android Honeycomb 3.2. But now, with Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility in its early stages, the tablets might feature the Ice Cream Sandwich OS when they arrive.

Both the tablets will also come with a 5MP rear and 2MP front camera, and rumor suggests that the devices will have a screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800.

The XOOM 2 is expected to pack a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of “faster” RAM, and will be capable of recording 1080p HD video. The device has also been reported to last for up to 11 hours on a single charge.

Just in case you are doubtful, these upcoming tablets are not to be confused with the 7-inch Motorola tablet that popped up earlier. That tablet is expected to be released in November.
