    No More Xoom? Motorola Plans to 'phase out' The Xoom Brand Name


    We have some sad news to report to you guys. It looks like Motorola has decided to drop the Xoom brand name. Apparently, it isn't entirely because they didn't want to keep it either. In case you missed it, Motorola was actually sued in 2011 for using the Xoom name by a payment company called Xoom Corp. Here's a quote with the details,

    Motorola has inked a deal with payment company Xoom Corp. that will see the handset and tablet maker put an end to its use of the "Xoom" name, American Lawyer reported on Tuesday, citing people who had knowledge of the deal. The agreement was reportedly signed on Monday, and the settlement between the firms has been kept confidential.

    Xoom Corp. sued Motorola in 2011, alleging that the mobile firm violated its trademark by using the Xoom name for its tablets. Motorola decided to fight the lawsuit, but according to American Lawyer, it has called a ceasefire.

    It's not clear exactly when the Xoom name needs to be nixed, but the report claims that the Google-owned company must "eventually phase out its Xoom tablet brand."
    Obviously this means there will never be another Xoom tablet, but it doesn't necessarily mean we will never see another Motorola tablet. Of course, we will still be here in the forums so you still have a place to come chat and find tech advice for owners of the Xoom tablet.

    There was talk of a new tablet right after the moto x phone was released. Hope they are still working on it. Googling it still has a lot of hits.
