Telstra has announced that the Motorola Xoom 2 tablet will finally launch in Australia, months after it appeared overseas. It went on sale early this week on a variety of pricing plans. The tablet will also be available to buy outright for $720.

The follow-up to Motorola's first tablet comes with a 10.1in Corning Gorilla Glass display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 32GB of inbuilt flash storage, a 5MP rear-facing camera with 1080P HD recording, a 7000mAh lithium ion battery rated at 10 hours and a MicroSD port for additional storage. Motorola has also enhanced the Xoom 2 with its 'splash-guard' coating, so the device is water repellent.
The Motorola Xoom 2 runs on Android 3.2 Honeycomb out of the box, and although an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) is in the works, it won't land overseas until July at the earliest (given Telstra's history of being one of the slower Android updaters, the local update could be quite some time after that).
