DROID XYBOARD tablets arriving at Verizon, Launch date unknown

Just like the popular 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.

Verizon’s Motorola DROID XYBOARD gets official in 10.1 and 8.2 flavors

Yup, that's the real name, folks, and there ain't no going back now. Verizon announced the long-leaked Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets in a press release today, with the expected 10.1 and 8.2 inch models ready to go sometime in December. The larger model starts at $529.99 for the 16GB version, then goes up to $629.99 and $729.99 for the 32GB and 64GB editions. The smaller XYBOARD 8.2 (no "Media Edition" branding here) will go for $429.99 and $529.99, in 16GB and 32GB versions. All prices are with a two-year contract.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD (Xoom 2) 8.2″ Tab spotted with Verizon 4G LTE branding

We've seen plenty of the Motorola Xoom 2 and its smaller 8.2" brother being called the media edition but today we have a clear image of the 8.2" model imprinted clearly with Verizon Wireless 4G LTE. This isn't really anything new as we figured it would obviously land on Verizon just like the original Xoom, but now we have an official picture not to mention we are hearing that absurd name is official too.

Motorola XOOM 2 gets SwiftKey X pre-installed

SwiftKey is making in-roads in the OEM market, just like Swype did before it. The third-party keyboard will be pre-installed on the upcoming Motorola XOOM 2 and XOOM 2 Media Edition, presumably in its tablet version. The software keyboard has become popular for its word prediction AI and easy customization. SwiftKey Tablet X is a $5 download in the Android Market, making it a slight value-add to the new XOOM.

XOOM 2 and XOOM 2 Media Edition tablets confirmed

Motorola's much-rumored new tablets have been made official, in the UK at least, with the 10.1-inch 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. Inside, each packs 1GB of RAM along with 16GB of storage. There are various preloaded business apps on the bigger tablet, while the Media Edition gets Motorola's music/video streaming app preloaded. The Media Edition also boasts 178-degree viewing angles. The XOOM 2 is 253.9 mm x 173.6 mm x 8.8 mm and 599g, 100g less than its first-gen predecessor, while the XOOM 2 Media Edition is 139 mm x 216 mm x 8.99 mm and 386g. Both have Gorilla Glass. No word on pricing, but they'll each arrive in the UK midway through November. [youtube x16LUdsMPqw] [gallery] [via SlashGear]

Motorola Xoom 2 models spotted in Verizon systems with 4G LTE and 64GB storage

The new Motorola Xoom 2's have been getting 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.
