XOOM 2 details include 4G LTE, up to 64GB internal storage

New details have emerged for the successor to Motorola’s XOOM tablet, dubbed (naturally!) the XOOM 2.  Carrying a code name of Pasteur, the MZ617 has been spotted in Verizon’s Cellebrite system. Judging by the most recent information, the thinner, faster tablet will come in 32GB and 64GB options as well as 4G LTE support.

We’d love to see this offered in a strictly Wi-Fi capacity but we understand the whole carrier exclusivity deal. The original XOOM was saddled with a very high price point and dense, not-very-sexy body. Trimming the thickness down and tossing in a faster data connection should add to its appeal however Verizon has not always made it affordable to buy 4G LTE devices.

In related news, the smaller, 7-inch XOOM 2 Media Edition has been tied to the code name of MZ609. Specifications for the “Fleming” have yet to surface although we hope to see something equally as powerful.  Here’s to hoping for 1.2GHz dual-core processors, 1GB RAM, and a bunch of storage.

    Hope it isn’t any thicker or heavier than an ipad2.

    The big thing this also needs is a better screen. My XOOM screen is noticably inferior to my iPad’s screen, even though I like the XOOM better in general. Probably no way to tell till we see one in person though – and especially outside.
