You have likely heard the rumors as of late about Motorola possibly working on a new high-resolution tablet PC with a 4:3 aspect ratio to help them rival against the almighty iPad. Well today we bring you more concrete rumors, this time regarding a potential new quad-core tablet called the Motorola KORE.
That’s right folks, it seems like the odds of Motorola’s next tablet being labeled as the XOOM 2 are slipping away quicker than a tablet without a firm grip case. Thanks to a heads up from a spy, er sorry, I meant to say staff, wait, secret undercover agent codenamed J.B. at Fusible it’s looking more and more like Motorola might very well ditch the XOOM tablet all together for a beefed up quad-core powered Motorola KORE tablet instead. What can I say, some of us fellow tablet PC fans are tech junkies by day and industry stalkers by night. It just goes with the territory if you want to stay current.
Thanks to Fusible’s highly advanced and secret radar system (at least I think that’s what they use) it turns out that Motorola has in fact registered 5 new domain names all of which include the word “KORE”. The newly registered URL’s are as follows:

So as you can see it appears that Motorola is prepping for something big. Their XOOM tablet hasn’t exactly been a total flop and the company did manage to push more than a quarter of a million units in the first quarter of 2011, but in order to compete with all of the new tablets on the scene they must continue to innovate. A quad-core, Android Ice Cream Sandwich (aka Android 4.0) tablet with a high-resolution 2048 x 1536 pixel display could very well be just what the tablet PC doctor ordered.
If speculations prove to be true that Motorola is on pace to become one of the first manufacturers to release a tablet that sports the new NVIDIA quad-core Kal-El processor, then in the future when you mention the word “iPad” people might respond by saying the “iWhat?”. Ok, perhaps that is stretching it a wee bit, but either way if the Motorola KORE becomes a reality with such specs it could end up being a very powerful contender in the highly competitive tablet PC market.
