At the tail end of 2011 Motorola introduced two new tablets to the United States via Verizon Wireless. The Xyboard 10.1 and the Xyboard 8.2 were the follow ups for the Verizon Wireless Motorola Xoom. Both tablets run on Verizon’s 4G/LTE network and have 1.2ghz dual core processors.
The bigger of the two, the Xyboard 10.1, has landed at Telstra, Australia’s biggest carrier, as the Motorola Xoom 2.
The specs are exactly the same as the Xyboard 10.1 sans the name. The tablet ships with Android 3.2 Honeycomb out of the gate, and hopefully it will see an update to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, before too long.
Telstra is offering a variety of data plans for the Xoom 2 and the price of the Xoom 2 is dependent on the data plan customers purchase. Telstra’s data plans start at $29 for 1gb and $89 for 15gb. (Aussie dollars).
