Want a bet?
Rumors will start around August September ...
Prototype will emerge or better leaked or teased around October and November ...
Device will be announced on December together with Google Release of Android ICS ...
Show of and hands on will be on January 2012 ... During CES show ...
Another show on Mobile World Congress on February ...
That would be the most plausible release scenario ...
Don't expect sooner, because most major manufacturers have just released new products. Some are not even available yet!
Except HTC, but usually they will use Snapdragon.
Xoom 2? They even cannot come up with current Xoom LTE update, SD card activation, what not ...
In the mean time, I will enjoy my GTab 10.1 for few months. Then sell it when the Google Nexus Tablet released

Now... I would not put to much into this optimisation.
As far as I remember from the firs leaks of honeycomb (even before we knew Moto was the chosen company) and from Google Honeycomb presentation, whole system was redesigned, kernel... al of it... and Tegra was reference platform, and blah blah blah...
Who remembers firs opinions about how Xoom was laggish, sluggish, not smooth, etc?
Now... we would know if there is any difference with A 3.1 on different SOC if there would be different SOC out there to compare :)
But judging from ports to devices like Nook I'd say this whole - "You are the chosen one TI, for this" is just marketing bull****.
It will run fine on all ARM SOC - better on more powerful constructions and worse on cheaper (less powerful) ones.
Since GT 10.1 seems like a complete disappointment (no sd slot and tegra inside) I am switching my focus on next gen of tablets that will be able to replace my netbook for entertainment.
Kal-El/Xoom2 - how soon can u be here? ;)
