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.

Galaxy Nexus we are now hearing the Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets are also starting to arrive in stores and on the shelves at Verizon Wireless -- only on shelves in the back room of course. Neither of these devices have an official launch date and are chillin in what I'd like to call "Verizon Limbo" because you know as much as we do at this point. Same probably goes for all the retail employees.

The third-party keyboard will be pre-installed on the upcoming Motorola XOOM 2 and XOOM 2 Media Edition, presumably in its tablet version.

Motorola XOOM 2 and 8.2-inch Motorola XOOM 2 Media Edition both being confirmed today. Each packing a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, splash-resilience and a pair of cameras - 1.3-megapixels upfront, 5-megapixels on the back - the only real disappointment is that they run Android 3.2 Honeycomb rather than 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Media Edition also boasts 178-degree viewing angles.

No word on pricing, but they'll each arrive in the UK midway through November. [youtube x16LUdsMPqw] [gallery] [via SlashGear]
plenty of love lately but we still don't have anything too concrete regarding these tablets other than the few and far between leaked details. We've seen plenty of pictures and have heard rumors of a November launch date but are still waiting for confirmation. Recently they've been spotted in Verizon's inventory system giving us hope they are coming soon.
