New Motorola tablet gets FCC approval. Is it the 4G LTE Xoom or the Xoom 2?

A new Motorola Tablet made an appearance at the FCC today and received approval for its Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and CDMA, and LTE capabilities. The device, known only by its FCC ID IHDP56LU2, has a width of 249mm and a height of 166mm.

Now, the real question is what is this device? Is it the Motorola Xoom 2 or the Motorola Xoom 4G? My guess is that this is the Motorola Xoom 4G. When Motorola announced the Xoom, they did say that they were also going to release a 4G model, instead of only releasing a 3G/4G upgradeable model.

This could also be the mysterious Motorola tablet that was spotted in the Verizon video, which you can see below. Whatever the case, I know that a lot of early adopters of the Xoom aren’t going to be happy about this. After all, one of the reasons we purchased the Xoom was for the fact that at one point, 3 months after launch, we would be able to enjoy 4G speeds on it. Now we have the Galaxy Tab 4G that’s on the way and a new Motorola tablet with LTE radios that just hit the FCC.
