Motorola Xoom 2 coming with 8.2-inch Media Edition

The Motorola Xoom 2 has been spotted out and about and, what's more, is that it seems to have a little friend in tow - the 8.9-inch Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition.

Both tablets have been leaking like an Android filled tap all over the web this past weekend, ramping up excitement levels of fandroids everywhere.

Starting with the biggie, and guestimates suggest that we're again looking at a 10.1-inch model but with a meatier engine room running the Android 3.2 and Flash 11 action. The RAM is said to be the same as the original at 1GB, but it will be powered by a dual core 1.2GHz chip, possibly of the TI OMAP 4 variety.

1080p video recording is said to be on board the 5-megapixel camera, which is why there's a HD logo on the camera which now finds itself in the centre of the Xoom sequel's back. Also on the back are the physical buttons or, at least, they're pointing backwards due to the 2's sharp angled design which measures 9mm thick.

The Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition's 8.9-inch display is apparently a HD IPS one that is made of Gorilla glass and is splashproof. It's packing an integrated IR remote and a subwoofer on the chassis.

Codenamed Fleming, it is also said to be running Android 3.2 and has reported thickness of 9.3mm and a weight of 430g. There's LTE on board and, like its big bro', there's also backwards facing buttons and a 5-megapixel camera - this time positioned front and centre in a portrait setup.

No official word as of yet, but hit up the original sources for plenty of leaky image action.
