Droid Xyboard Tablets Now Available in Verizon Stores



If you’ve been looking for an Android-powered, 4G LTE tablet from Motorola, today is your lucky day. That’s because Verizon has launched both the Motorola Xyboard 10.1 and the Xyboard 8.2, the successors to the Xoom, and both can now be found inside Verizon retail stores across the country.

The Droid Xyboard tablet’s are Android Honeycomb powered, meaning they don’t have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board. However, both Motorola and Verizon have made it clear that they will be getting updated to ICS at some point in the future. When exactly? Unfortunately, that information is not yet know.

Still, the Xyboard tablets pack some impressive hardware specifications that should help to ease the pain.

    Motorola is one of the fastest manufacturers (in the US, at least) to update their OS. True story.
