Motorola announces its two new tablets: Droid XYBOARD 10.1 and 8.2

We present the new tablet of Motorola, the Droid XYBOARD, which will come in two sizes: 10.1 Y 8.2, thus following the guidelines set by the competition and the market. What comes to be the second batch of Android tablets It is already underway, and they come with strength … Do you want to know more about it? Well, here we go:

Physically we see a clear resemblance to the Xoom (and with any tablet …) but in this case, forget the conventional rectangular shapes and the rounded corners, and give it one more turn of the sheet, very Motorola style, as seen in the Razr.

The technical characteristics They are as follows:

  • Display: 10.1 inches and 8.2 inches IPS screen with Gorilla Glass
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • Memory: 1GB RAM, internal: 16GB / 32GB / 64GB for the XYBOARD 10.1 and 16GB / 32GB for the XYBOARD 8.2
  • Cameras: 5MP the rear, 1.3MP the front
  • Version: Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) that will be upgradable to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • Stylus support (included)
  • HDMI port
  • Support for LTE / 4G

Little else is known at the moment, apart from the departure in the USA (at the end of the month) and that Verizon will be responsible for distributing it as an operator in the United States, and we have even the prices, which have not been cheaper with respect to the Xoom:

  • DROID XYBOARD 10.1: 16GB -> $ 530, 32GB -> $ 630, 64GB -> $ 730
  • DROID XYBOARD 8.2: 16GB -> $ 430, 32GB -> $ 530

The truth is that I don't know if we should have expected anything else, because of course I don't see much difference with respect to the XOOM. We lack details to know, as if you have USB port or not, for example, and update time for Ice Cream Sandwich, but the truth is that I was surprised that Motorola, after its purchase by Google has not revolutionized its product any more … Or is it a warning to other manufacturers? "Do not advance as long as customers do not need it." Total, if the tablets still do not work as they should …
