Is Motorola planning to revive the Xoom tablet line-up?
Motorola’s recent purchase by Lenovo has brought its fair share of bad news, starting with the closure of the company’s Moto Maker plant in the United States. The service will continue, but this is just one of many probable shake-ups to come in the future. Still, it seems that the company wants to go back to some of its roots with its future product offering, even if those roots weren’t that successful.
We just came across some leaked photos of a probable Motorola Xoom 3 tablet in China. If you don’t remember the original Motorola Xoom, we don’t blame you. Surely it was the first-ever Honeycomb tablet, aside from also being the first Android product with a dual-core processor that we can remember. Sadly it wasn’t successful even in its future Xyboard attempts, for reasons that we still peg on the operating system, more than on the tablets themselves. These leaks show us that the tablet will apparently bring a kevlar back, and a design similar to what we’ve seen before.
It’s hard to tell if this product will ever happen, or if it could be just a prototype that never got launched. Whatever the case may be, good luck Motorola, as it’s hard to predict that it’ll succeed on the third round.
