A report from Fusible shows Motorola has been acquiring domains names, five in total, each related to the “Kore” moniker.  The domain names listed include MotorolaKore.comKoreMotorola.com,  Moto-Kore.comMotoKore.com and Motorola-Kore.com

Of course speculation that Kore may be the successor to the Xoom, which recently received a price cut, at this point is just that.We told you about a leaked Verizon document that suggests Motorola is still planning on launching the LTE Xoom in early September despite less than spectacular sales, so we aren’t holding our breath for a new tablet before then.

Rumor has it the Kore device will have a 4:3 aspect ratio, but that is pretty much a given if it plans to take on its competition. There is still always the possibility the Kore could be a new smartphone, rather than a tablet.

If it is a tablet it could be the first running Nvidia’s Kal-El Quad core processor (demo below).

We’ll keep you posted as more becomes available.
