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
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
