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. Both of the tablets have similar hardware inside with the screen size being the only difference. They pack 1.2GHz dual-core chips.
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.
