Rumor points to Motorola developing high-resolution successor to the Xoom tablet

Motorola’s Xoom tablet was the first Android Honeycomb tablet to hit the scene, and though it wasn’t the most successful tablet, rumors of a successor are aplenty. After an LTE equipped Motorola tablet was spotted at the FCC last week, new rumors are now providing more insight with regards to what could end up as the Xoom 2.

According sources of Fudzilla.com, Motorola is currently working on a new tablet that features a 4:3 display ratio. Prototypes of the tablet may have already been produced  and supposedly include a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels. Otherwise, the source indicated that the tablet should be significantly thinner than the Motorola Xoom, will be running Google’s Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, and could possibly be powered by NVIDIA’s latest Kal-El Tegra 3 chip.

Even though the first Motorola Xoom was unable to knock off the iPad 2, it did manage to pave the way for the multitude of Honeycomb tablets currently on the market. Consequently, a successor could be able to iron out the original Xoom’s flaws, but unfortunately all that’s currently known is that the tablet could become available sometime later this year.
