Telstra announced they will be the first Australian carrier for Xoom 2 (aka Droid XYBOARD on Verizon). Motorola’s slimmer and lighter new (in Australia) tablet comes with a 10.1-inch screen, 1.2GHz Dual Core processor, 1 GB RAM and 32GB storage capacity. As the Ice Cream Sandwich update is still to come on the Xoom 2, the tablet currently runs Android’s 3.2 Honeycomb.
Prices vary according to the data plan you are choosing, and start at AUD 29 (roughly USD 31) for 1GB included monthly data, $39 (USD 41) for 4GB of data, AUD 49 (USD 52) for 8GB and culminate at $89 (USD 95) for 15GB. Prices are however expected to adapt as iPad 3 is allegedly just weeks away.
