Ireland Getting Xoom 2 Before Christmas

Earlier this week we saw leaked listings hinting at two

versions of the Motorola Xoom 2 launching, and now we have proof that at least

one of these is on the way and will cost €400.

An image from an Irish Carphone Warehouse catalogue was

leaked to Engadget which shows that the 8.2in Xoom 2 will arrive in stores in

time for Christmas with a price tag of €399.90.

It is suspected that Motorola will launch a 10.1in model

along side this so-called Xoom 2 Media Edition but so far no confirmation has

been forthcoming from the company itself.

The page from the Irish catalogue advertised the 16GB Wi-Fi

only model which will be running Android 3.2 and not the new Android 4.0 (Ice

cream Sandwich) despite Motorola’s newly-close

relationship with Google.

While it seems as if people in Ireland

will be getting their hands on the Xoom 2 very soon, there is still no official

word on when it will be launched in the UK or elsewhere. However we are

expecting word soon from Motorola about the launch.

Does the Xoom 2 excite you or will be the price point put

you off? Let us know in the comments below.
