Details of the Motorola Xoom 2 have been leaked ahead of launch.

Where? In a Carphone Warehouse Ireland sales brochure, which has a page devoted to Moto's latest fondleslab, Engadget reports.

Xoom 2 Carphone Warehouse leak

The price is apparently set at €400 (£344) for a 16GB Wi-Fi only edition with an 8.2in display.

Any hopes that the Xoom 2 will adopt Google's latest Android OS, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, have been shattered: it'll ship with Android 3.2 Honeycomb instead.

We'll have more information about the Xoom 2 when Motorola officially unveils it. A little birdie tells me that could take place tomorrow.

It's no coincidence that Motorola's original 10in Xoom tablet has seen serious price reductions in recent months. ®
