On Friday, we showed you some leaked pics of what we believed to be Motorola’s upcoming Xoom 2 tablet. In one of the pics I noticed the tab was surprisngly small when compared to the hand holding the device and we now know why. Apparently Motorola has been hard at work on a pair of Xoom devices slated for a holiday release — one with a 10.1-inch screen and the other with an 8.9-inch display. Just like my women, thickness is always a factor when deciding on a future Android device but don’t let these pics fool you. The smaller one, dubbed “Flemming” measures in at only 9.3mm thick and when compared to the almost too thin 8.6mm Galaxy Tab 10.1, that’s not too shabby.

Both of these Xoom 2’s feature new IPS displays, 5MP HD rear cams, are LTE enabled and are running Android 3.2 that’s reported to be “buggy as all hell, with frequent reboots and crashes.” Let’s hope some of these issues can be remedied once Ice Cream Sandwich drops later this year. Design wise, I think Motorola is definitely hitting the mark. I’ve always been one for the “industrial/screw look” of my late Zune. What do you guys think?
