Ever since Google first purchased Motorola, the Android faithful have been waiting for this report. We've all been wondering when Google would finally jump in and make a device in-house, using its newly acquired hardware manufacturer, and it looks like the time is coming. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google and Motorola are working on a so-called "X Phone" and a tablet, both of which will be released next year...

Lol. Android is open source. When developers can fork their own versions, why can't others update their versions. If google makes it propriety, which I doubt, I might say goodbye to it.

Music to my ears!
Hope it has a big battery and made from good materials like RAZR MAXX!

Motorola needs to stop. They know they are soft and their smartphones are dull and boring. Get over it Samsung is android plain and simple. With the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 on the horizon in 2013 Motorola better come real strong my friends.

Hey, all, Don't get your hopes up.... if you actually want the tablet at least.
i used to be a RAZR MAXX owner. best damn battery life ever, but now I have Lumia 920 on T-Mo.....
Do any of you remember the prior Moto Tablet that VZW used to sell that was suppose to have the first LTE. Customers had to ship it to Moto, then get shipped back the LTE equiped device..... It didn't sell.... So unless this tablet is a serious upgrade from the prior Verizon only Moto tablet device that did not sell well on VZW... I think it was called the XOOM........
Does anybody know anybody that has one..?

Actually I do and it is a great device. No, it wasn't Verizon exclusive, just the LTE variant. I have the wifi version running jelly bean. This is a Google experience device like any other nexus or OG Droid before it. Does it have its draw backs like any other device? Sure, there is no one "perfect" device out there, regardless what Apple wants you to think.
Battery life is outstanding. Dual core tegra is OK now on jelly bean. It is nearly a two year old device now but still does everything any other android tablet will do. Was it a monster seller? No, I blame that on the pricing structure, but at the time there really wasn't any other android tablets out there and they priced it like Apple.

i had the Xyboard 8.2 for a few months. (the Wi-Fi variant) it was a decent tablet. i preferred using it over the Transformer Prime. it was a great size, had good build quality, had those real reliable Motorola radios and it was spec'd like the Tab 2 series that came out like half a year later.

Please add a great camera with XENON flash to it. Of course with world's best battery life.
And please please Google, DO NOT remove the microSD slot... PLEASEEE PLEASEEE.....

Now if Motorola could learn how to implement decent software into their phones. Out of every hardware vendor I'd say Motorola is the worst at software.
