Motorola Working on HD 10-inch Tablet, Packing Ice Cream Sandwich?

It’s that time of the week again, as the rumor mill is in full swing, this time with a new tablet from Motorola that’s sure to turn some heads (if it even exists). A rumor has reached the guys over at SlashGear, and it’s proposing that Moto is working on a new Android tablet, one to truly rival the iPad 2. This device is said to sport a 10-inch HD display, with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, and the speculation doesn’t end there. The rumored tablet will be running Ice Cream Sandwich, something we haven’t heard much about since Eric Schmidt gave us some details on it.

But wait, there’s more! It’s also rumored to be rocking an NVIDIA quad-core Tegra 3 Kal-El processor. I don’t know about you, but there’s a fine line between “extremely fabricated” and “dream device”, and this rumor is flirting with it. No word on if this is credible, or on a rumored release date, although some are saying that it’ll ship in late 2011 or early 2012. So what say you, our loyal readers? Is this tablet the future, or just a piece of fabricated fiction? Drop a comment below or on our Facebook Wall!

    So what if it “truly rival’s the iPad 2.” If it’s set to release late 2011 or early 2012, shouldn’t it be ready to rival the iPad 3? I love android tablets, but that doesn’t make a lot of sense if they’re targeting a year old product.

    So if Motorola set the price for the current Xoom at around $600, that means the new Xoom 2 will probably cost $700 or more?  If Motorola wants their new tablet to be successful, they must price the new tablet at around $400 or less.

    Motorola has screwed all non-US markets with their Xoom because they have not released Honeycomb updates for it. While US owners are getting 3.2, other owners are still stuck on 3.0. Surely it’s not that difficult for Motorola to give some love to non-US markets too. In fact, Motorola has gone as far as misleading sales in UK by implying the UK available Xoom is a Google Experience Device but they are now back tracking and denying this. I don’t care how good this Motorola tablet is, I’m no longer interested in Motorola.

    I can guarantee you that this tablet, if it existswill NOT have a 2048 x 1536 resolution. That ridiculous and impossible to manufacture…not to mention that even if someone managed to manufacture it, it would rape the battery on both LCD and gpu side. Its a dumb rumor made up by dumb tech reviewrs who don’t have a club what they’re talking about…they were spouting the exact same nonsense about the ipad 2 in a sad attempt to bring more vews to their site. In fact, 2048 x 1536 has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which is the aspect ratio used by the ipad, NOT android. That in itself tells me this rumor is a load of bullcrap.

    Yes, obviously moto has a future tablet in the works. Yes, its prolly going to use the tegra 3. Does that make this a legitimate rumor? No.

    I would love a high resolution display like that but I highly doubt they would produce a 4:3 aspect ratio tablet.
