Sources close to DigiTimes claim that Motorola will be launching not one, but two new tablets in November and December. One model is expected to come equipped with a 7-inch screen, while the other will use a larger 10-inch screen. The American telecommunications company has apparently ordered around 250,000 to 350,000 7-inch units to be ready for shipment before the end of the year.

The rumor could not have come at a better time, as there have been numerous leaks lately on the 7-inch and 10-inch Motorola tablets. The smaller of the two may be the Media Edition tablet while the larger 10-inch model could be the Xoom 2.

Motorola has yet to officially announce the upcoming tablets, but the consistent leaks so far are definitely backing up the claimed Q4 2011 release. If true, Motorola should be making an announcement on the tablets within the coming months.

Be sure to check out our previous reports on the leaks for leaked photos and details of both devices.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
