    Pictures of a strange, alternative Xoom are turning up across the web. As the box shows, this is the Xoom Family Edition. The “Family” aspect is the fact that the device comes pre-installed with $40 worth of software for kids by Zoodles, Asphalt 6 from Gameloft, and “grown-up productivity apps like QuickOffice.” That’s not the only difference though. This Xoom has physically changed from its predecessor. The edges are now beveled all the way around whereas the original was flat on the screen side. The volume buttons look much more pronounced. The front-facing camera has moved from the center to the top left. Flipping over to the back, the first thing you’ll notice is a new camera. It is now in a chrome setting and occupies the space of the former power button, which by the way, appears to have been removed from the back. Gone also, is the two tone design of aluminum and gel coat. This new Xoom seems a solid sheet of dark brushed metal, possibly duraluminum. Also of note is that the device is labeled MZ505. Currently the Xoom WiFi and 3G/4G devices come as models MZ606/606 & MZ600/602 respectively. We don’t have a run down of full specs, but for now we know that it features a 1GHz dual core processor and 10.1″ HD display. It’s interesting that this Xoom has been able to slip through the cracks all the way to what sources are calling a big box electronic store, especially considering the leaks of the Motorola Xoom Media Edition and Xoom 2.
