Motorola Xoom “Family Edition” hitting retail stores

This is an odd one, what we have here is a Motorola Xoom Family Edition that has been spotted and opened up for the cameras from what sources are calling a big box electronic store. We aren't sure where yet but this Family Edition Xoom looks a bit different, and also seems to have all sorts of family and kid-friendly software pre-installed. Go big Moto, go big.

Although 4G LTE for the Motorola Xoom is finally here, I was hoping for something a little faster and thinner for the next Xoom like the recently leaked ones we've seen. I'm not sure anyone saw this family edition tablet coming, but it's here so lets check it out. We don't know much about this, but according to Engadget it has plenty of pre-installed software for family's or kids with something called "Kids Mode".

With Kids mode there are a few games and apps, something called Zoodles, and more. They are saying around $40 dollars of stuff all aimed at Family's. We don't know anything regarding a price, release date, or internal specs but most likely it features the same dual-core Tegra 2 as the original Xoom. Judging from the picture above its not exactly the same as the original Xoom, for one the camera looks different but before we start breaking things down hopefully Motorola gives us a little confirmation here. We'll be digging for more details and will update when we see more.
