Motorola DROID XYBOARDs 8.2 and 10.1 get Ice Cream Sandwich updates

It's been a while since we've discussed the Motorola DROID XYBOARD here on Android Community, but today it's making headlines thanks to its shiny new Ice Cream Sandwich update. Motorola has announced that it's pushing Ice Cream Sandwich updates for both the DROID XYBOARD 8.2 and 10.1, so if you haven't moved on to a different kind of tablet yet, you're in for a treat. It isn't quite the squishy, colorful candy treat that many would prefer, but delicious ice cream is almost just as good.

Motorola adds spill-proof coating and free accessories to XYBOARD tablets

Here's a nice surprise: in a refreshing bit of post-launch self improvement, Motorola has announced that its XYBOARD 10.1 and 8.2 Android tablets are being upgraded with a spill-proof coating. The change will only affect the WiFi models (at least as far as we know) which will have the same price as they do now: $399.99 for the 8.2-inch 16GB tablet and a hundred bucks more for the 10.1. If you buy them directly form Motorola's store you'll also get a free case and HD dock. As far as we know, neither the spill-proof coating or the freebie accessories are being offered for the DROID XYBOARDs, Verizon's 4G LTE version.

DROID XYBOARD root works on all current Moto 2.3 and 3.0 devices

Good news, Motorola modders: the root method developed for the Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and DROID XYBOARD 8.2 should work on just about every current Motorola device out there. The developer of the XYBOARD root method (among many, many others) Dan Rosenberg said that the exploit, which he calls "Motofail", should work on Motorola devices running Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Since that encompasses pretty much every Motorola device released in the last six months, it's a major boon to the community.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD update offers worldwide roaming

A couple of weeks ago a modder was shocked to discover that Verizon's HTC Rezound worked on international GSM networks with a SIM card and a little tweaking. It looks like the Rezound isn't the only Verizon LTE device hiding a surprise: the latest update to the Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets turns on the feature as well. Download the update from Verizon's servers by checking for it in the settings menu on either the XYBOARD 10.1 or 8.2, and your tablet should be able to roam on nearly any cellular network in the world. Previously the FCC published the GSM capability, but it was disabled at the time.
