Last week Motorola's long rumored tablet got its first public outing at the D: Dive into Mobile event, now more information has leaked regarding the internal specs of the device. Accompanying the new information are some blurry pictures of the device which serve to confirm which ports it will feature and little more. When it was revealed by Andy Rubin, its purpose was more to demonstrate the new Google Maps rather than the tablet, and he made it clear that it was still in its prototype stage.

It is now known that it will feature a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a gyroscope and 32GB of internal memory expandable to 64GB with a Micro SD card. The 10" screen will have a 1280x800 resolution and there will be connectivity for micro-USB, Mini-HDMI, 3.5mm headphone socket as well as connectors for a dock. There will also be two cameras, a 5mp one and a 2mp front-facing webcam. Set to run Android 3.5, Honeycomb, the tablet is said to be the flagship device for the OS.Interestingly it has also been leaked that there will be a 7" variant of the device. When the 10" tablet was revealed it seemed like rumours of a smaller device were put to rest but now Motorola joins the ranks of other manufacturers such as Acer going with the iPad and Galaxy Tab-like form factors. With CES just around the corner it won't be long before a clearer picture of the tablet emerges though the biggest remaining question so far is whether it will feature 3G connectivity or LTE as leaked in a Verizon document back in October.

The new information also puts the name under some doubt and it may now be called either Stingray, Everest or Trygon. Other suggested names have included the MotoPad and Droid, which would piggyback off the popularity of Motorola's smartphones.
