Motorola’s Android Tablet Prototype Carries Twice XOOM’s Resolution
Motorola is allegedly in a mad rush to develop a prototype 10.1-inch Android tablet optimized for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Does that excite you? That doesn’t excite us either. In fact, we find that to be too predictable, and we’re sure Motorola isn’t the only one busy in the labs.
But, here’s what might excite you as much as it did excite us. The folks at Fudzilla have been told by purportedly insider sources about a currently existing Android tablet prototype with a screen resolution of–hold your breath–2048×1536. We find that truly incredible, but Fudzilla’s sources allegedly have seen and touched and played with the prototypes. The screen resolution is simply mind-blowing, considering that its about twice the resolution on the Motorola XOOM tablet (i.e., 1280×800).
More than that, the prototype tablet’s display is said to have a 4:3 aspect ratio, but what’s more interesting is that the sources said the upcoming tablet is going to be way much thinner than the Motorola XOOM.
Fudzilla’s sources had no idea what processor was inside, but it’s possibly one from NVIDIA–perhaps the quad-core Tegra 3 (Kal-El)–since Motorola and NVIDIA are chummy. Otherwise, it could be one of Qualcomm’s Snapdragons, which is also good.
Those, plus Ice Cream Sandwich–sounds like a delicious treat to look forward to. No release date has been pegged for this tablet, although we reckon it just may come in time for the holidays, at the very least, or maybe in early 2012.
These are rumors and speculations, but wouldn’t it be wonderful for them to turn out true? What do you want to see on Motorola’s next 10.1-inch Android tablet?
