Motorola Has New Tablet Up Its Sleeve, May Name It Motorola Kore
If domain name registrations told something about what Motorola might have coming very soon, it’s that a new Motorola product may be centered around the name “Kore.”
Tech news site Fusible.com discovered five brand-new domain name registrations under the registrant Motorola Trademark Holdings, LLC. The following domain names were registered last August 3:
These new domain names may be hints at the possible name–Motorola Kore–of the tablet that Motorola is rumored to be currently busy with in its labs.
Just last month, tech site Fudzilla reported confirmation of the rumor saying Motorola is currently preparing a Motorola XOOM successor, but with a non-widescreen aspect ratio (4:3) at a display resolution of 2048×1536.
Fudzilla’s source also claimed that the new tablet will be thinner than the XOOM and–this one’s sweet–it’s coming with Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Moreover, the source mentioned the likelihood of a launch date within this year and that the tablet may sport an NVIDIA Tegra 3 (Kal-El) processor.
The Motorola XOOM had a widescreen aspect ratio (16:9), and if Motorola Kore does come out with the rumored 4:3 aspect ratio, it will become comparable (as far as display is concerned) to Apple’s iPad, which uses the same squarish aspect ratio.
Public reception of the Motorola XOOM has been lukewarm at best, and Motorola presumably wants to drop the Motorola XOOM name from public consciousness when it brings out the XOOM’s successor. “Motorola Kore” does sound like a really catchy name, and I am 100% sure Motorola will play around with references to 4 “kores” courtesy of Tegra 3.
Will having 4 “kores” on a 4:3 Motorola tablet make you want to buy one?
