lowered the contract price for both the 10.1-inch and 8.2-inch models by $50 each. Unfortunately, it looks like the name is staying put.
DROID XYBOARD, known outside the world of baffling product marketing as the XOOM 2, has a lot riding on it. When the XOOM debuted on Verizon back in February, it was the only game in town as far as Honeycomb tablets were concerned. Now consumers have a choice of dozens of tablets, with or without wireless service, across a wide variety of form factors and prices. Can the updated Motorola tablet stand above the madding crows of 10-inch Android competitors?
XOOM launched as the first Honeycomb tablet and had plenty of promise. Sadly the hefty size and bloated Verizon 3G data pricing didn't help its cause. We now have the next-gen Xoom happily named the DROID XYBOARD tablets to see what they learned from their first attempt at a tablet.

two new Motorola tablets, each of them carrying the coveted "DROID" moniker in front of the word XYBOARD - what we've got here is the 10.1-inch version, the closest we'll get to a direct descendent of the original Honeycomb tablet, the Motorola XOOM. This tablet runs with Verizon's 4G LTE network for speed, a Texas Instruments OMAP4 1.2GHz dual-core processor under the hood, and has a lovely new form factor with soft black plastic and metallic-looking hard silver plastic. On the front there's one sheet of reinforced Gorilla Glass glass over this device's 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 pixel resolution LCD display.
DROID XYBOARD 8.2" 4G LTE tablet. Other than the bizarre name you'll quickly notice a few unique things about this slate out of the box. A perfectly sized 8.2" IPS display and some of that Moto Blur UI over Honeycomb to name a few. We have our hands-on video and a few photos below for your enjoyment.
officially announced the new Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets finally and we are happy to inform everyone that they are in stores and available for purchase right now -- not the 12th like reported by Verizon.

DROID XYBOARD and doesn't know how to order electronics via the Internet. While you can pick up one of Motorola's new 10. or 8.2-inch tablets from Verizon's website now, you'll be able to get one in person on Monday, December 12th. The pricing, and the unfortunate prerequisite of a two-year contract, remain the same.
landed at Verizon Wireless locations, but we didn't have a launch date for the devices. Today we have learned that the Xyboard 10.1 and 8.2 slates are now available to purchase.
