iPad 2 Rival Alert : 64GB Motorola XOOM 2 Coming?

Additional clues have emerged suggesting that Motorola is going to launch multiple versions of the XOOM 2 with various screen sizes and onboard storage capacities.

That is, if you believe this screen shot from Droid-life which appears to come from Verizon Wireless' backend stock system.

The company - which was taken over by Google earlier this year - is said to be planning a top of the range tablet with 64GB onboard storage with separate rumours pointing to a quad core processor and a 10.1-inch display with a 2048x1536 pixel resolution.

Two model numbers mentioned are the MZ617 and the MZ609 which could be referring to two tablets with different screen sizes.

We reported earlier about a certain page from a Carphone Warehouse brochure that showed a smaller 8.2-inch Motorola XOOM 2 tablet without any reference to bigger models.

In addition, there have been a number of other leaks, rumours and blurry snapshots in the past about the Motorola XOOM 2.

Whether it makes sense for Motorola to follow Samsung's example and release multiple SKUs remains to be seen. Apple sticks to only six (12 if you consider the colours) but these include Wi-Fi and 3G.

Getting a combination of screen sizes, storage capacities and connectivity would push the number of SKUs for the XOOM 2 to a whopping 18 and we're assuming that the tablet will be available in black.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
