Enterprise Mobility: Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 Is a Speedy, Snazzy Follow-Up to the Xoom
Motorola's Droid Xyboard 10.1 4G Long-Term Evolution tablet went on sale Dec. 12 from Verizon Wireless, priced at $529.99 for 16GB, $629.99 for $32GB and $729.99 for 64GB of data, all with a two-year data deal. After it hit the market, eWEEK tested the 32GB model, which runs Google's Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system with a speedy 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The Xyboard's 10.1-inch display is a luxurious in-plane-switching-enhanced high-definition screen for wide viewing angles. All in all, this is a fine follow-up to the Motorola Xoom, which hasn't sold well since February. The Xyboard should provide creditable competition to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, HTC JetStream tablet and even the Asus Eee Transformer Prime tablet. Check out eWEEK's first hands-on of the Xyboard in this slide show.
