Rumor: Motorola working on 10-inch tablet with Ice Cream Sandwich, high-res screen

Not very happy with the reception its Xoom tablet has received in the market, Motorola seems to be kicking things up a notch with its upcoming Android tablets. According to a rumor from the folks at Fudzilla, Motorola is already testing an Android tablet prototype running Ice Cream Sandwich. But that’s not what will make this tablet stand out.

No, it’ll be the crazy 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution this tablet will supposedly launch with. That’s almost double the number of pixels compared to the 1280 x 800 resolution the Xoom has. Madness, I tell you. Interestingly, the tablet will also have a 4:3 aspect ratio. We have no idea why Motorola would do such a thing, but hey, it’s not like we get paid to design tablets. So what do we know?

Fudzilla speculates that NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 ship could be a likely candidate to power this monster of a tablet. And we kind of have to agree with them. Unless Motorola decides to go with a Qualcomm chip, Tegra 3 would be the obvious choice. This “Xoom 3″ is expected to launch around Christmas or early 2012. In other words, this will be one of the first devices to launch running Ice Cream Sandwich. Mmm. We can almost taste it.

And that’s about it. Hopefully we’ll find out more about this tablet in the near future. Maybe a blurry photo of the device? Make it happen, Mr. BlurryCam.
