Rumor has Motorola working on high-resolution 10-inch tablet

Motorola has one of the more popular Android tablets on the market today with the Xoom. The Xoom hasn't racked up the kind of sales it needs to compete with the iPad. To help ramp sales Motorola recently cut the price of the Xoom WiFi tablet to $499 in hopes of luring more buyers from the iPad 2. A rumor has surfaced today that Motorola is working on a new Android tablet that has some interesting specifications.

The rumor claims that the tablet is packing a 10-inch screen with an amazing resolution of 2048 x 1536. The tablet is also said to be in the hands of testers already for its beta shakedown before launch. Another interesting fact about the rumored tablet is that it is said to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Other hardware specs are unknown right now.

The speculation is that with the Motorola and NVIDIA cooperation the new tablet will be using the Tegra 3 Kal-El processor to make it into a super tablet. The rumored specs sound pretty impressive; we will have to wait to see if they turn out to be true. The tablet is expected to ship in late 2011 or early 2012.
