Motorola today officially announced the release of new Xoom tablets. Named expectedly as Xoom 2, the tablets come in two sizes. 10.1 inch and 8.2 inch. Both tablets feature 1.2 GHz dual core processors, 1 GB Memory, 16GB storage. The cameras are 5 and 1.3 megapixels.

Motorola has a nice gift for Oscar hosts and nominees of this year. Well, a gold Xoom tablet for the Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actors and Actresses and Best Director for this year’s Oscar show will be given by Motorola in a specially designed leather envelope style case. Let’s hope that some of the stars will not just hang them on their walls along with other rewards without pressing ON button and at least have a look at the super appealing new Android Honeycomb home screen.
No worries folks, traditional black color Motorola Xoom for ordinary people like us is already available on BestBuy.com website and we really care it as one of the golden gadgets of 2011.
