Video footage of what appears to be the Motorola Xoom 7-inch model has made its way to the web today, and the thing looks pretty thin and sleek (cue Apple legal team for lawsuits). It’s very difficult to tell whether this is actually the smaller version of the Motorola Xoom, but that’s what folks at TIMN via a tipster who handed over video footage containing images of the tablet.
Here’s what they have to say:
Our tipster points out that the Motorola logo appears to be at the upper left in a portrait orientation, and we think we’re looking at micro-USB and micro-HDMI ports on the other end. The screen also seems to be 16:9, and we’re willing to bet this is the “fun” and “portable” 7-inch model that Moto CEO Sanjay Jha promised we’d see before the end of the year. No word yet on when we might see this get announced or retailed, so in the meantime, follow the break for a larger version of the shot (click it to enlarge).
Until this thing is officially announced, we can only sit and dream of having a smaller and more portable Android tablet, because sometimes a smartphone isn’t ideal for watching video or for reading, and 10 inches can just get a little too cumbersome for a tablet when you want real portability.
What say you? Does it look like something Motorola has down the pipeline? Or is the image too blurry to confirm?
