Spec Showdown: Droid Xyboard vs. iPad 2 vs. Kindle Fire



If you’ve been keeping up with your tech news the past few days, and we hope that you have, you would know that Verizon announced two new 4G LTE tablets – the Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2 and the Xyboard 10.1. Verizon, courtesy of Droid-Life, has been nice enough to compare some of the top competition to both Droid Xyboard variants.

Included in the comparison are Apple’s iPad 2, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire. Apparently, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime didn’t make the cut.

As you can see, hardware-wise, the Droid Xyboard’s conveniently trump the competition listed here in just about every category. Of course there is nothing on there about price, number of applications optimized for the device, or other services offered but on a hardware level, the Droid Xyboards are forces to be reckoned with.

We’ve heard that both Droid Xyboard tablets will be launching on December 12th.

Although, nothing is certain at this point.

    Overall I’m really happy with my Kindle Fire.  I was initially frustrated with the wifi issues which seem very common with lots of other users.  I downloaded the nook app so I could access my B&N content for free using the Android marketplace (detailed instructions at and also got some help on sorting out the wifi.  Everything is working great for now and I’m customising with all my usual apps.
