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.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets get a $50 price cut

When I reviewed the Motorola DROID XYBOARD a couple of weeks ago, I was impressed with just about everything - except the ridiculous on-contract price. Verizon seems to have gotten the message (possibly after some less than stellar sales) and have 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.

Android Community Weekly: December 18, 2011

This week in tech news we finally nab ourselves a Verizon branded Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE, review some excellent devices, and see Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) progress through some much needed updates. Monday, by no surprise - Facebook topped Nielsen’s list of most popular Android apps. To be honest, carriers should start including it with devices from now on, as it is probably the first application downloaded from the market by many.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Review

The Motorola 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?

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

Earlier this year Motorola's first tablet the 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. The XYBOARD has been hanging out with our team and a few Galaxy Nexus smartphones this week and below you'll find our thoughts on this 8.2" Honeycomb device.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Hands-on and Unboxing

This week (or last week, depending on your location), you're able to purchase not one, but 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.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2″ hands-on

We just got our hands on one of the latest tablets from team Motorola and Verizon this afternoon, the Motorola 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.
