Motorola launches Xoom 2, Media Edition Motorola has officially launched the Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition tablets today.
Under the hood the devices are practically the same. Each runs on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 3.2, 1GB RAM, dual cameras 5/1.3MP and the full line of Google apps.

While the Xoom 2 keeps the common 10.1-inch HD display, the Media Edition will only have an 8.2-inch screen. The Xoom 2 has a larger battery, as well, and will run for 10 hours compared to 6 for the smaller device. Each has Gorilla Glass, as well.

The Media Edition also includes the MotoCAST remote media streaming service.

Notably, the tablets don't appear to be headed to the U.S., at least not this month. Motorola is releasing the tablets in the U.K and Ireland in "mid-November." Pricing is unknown but the smaller device, at least, is expected to retail for 399 pounds.

So...other than the smaller screen that makes it harder to watch media, what does the "Media Edition" bring to the plate?

[edit]
oh...I see...it has the speakers that should be in the other one but are not.
