Motorola Mobility has announced the launch of the XOOM 2 in Israel. Beginning today, the tablet is available from Cellcom and selected stores and in the next few days from Orange. The XOOM 2 is a 10.1-inch tablet with a 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The tablet’s stunning HD display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and features a splash-guard and special flattened edges for easier holding. It comes running Android 3.2, but there’s no reason to believe this device won’t receive Ice Cream Sandwich in the near future.
For the shutterbugs, the XOOM 2 comes with a 1.3 MP front and 5 MP rear-facing HD cameras with digital zoom, auto focus, and LED flash — a feature lacking from many of the device’s competitors. Battery life looks to be about average as well, with 10+ hours Web usage (on WiFi) or 9 hours of 720p video playback. No word on pricing for the tablet was given.
