The Motorola XOOM 2 Xyboard tablets that launched last month on Verizon as the DROID XYBOARD tablets are about to be available soon for those looking for a WiFi only model. The tablets come in both an 8.2-inch and 10.1-inch flavors and are finally up for pre-order and are coming soon.

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.

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 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.

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.

Verizon confirms “XyBoard” branding for new Motorola XOOMs

We though "XOOM 2" was a pretty good name for a the tablet that replaces the original Honeycomb device, but apparently Verizon disagrees. The rumored "XyBoard" name for the Motorola XOOM 2 and its smaller Media Edition seems to be the final name, according to Cnet. Verizon confirmed that two tablets with Droid XyBoard branding will launch before the end of the year, both with LTE radios inside.

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.
