Here's what Motorola's Xoom 3 (Xyboard) tablet could have been
The cancelled Motorola tablet was recently spotted in some live photos, and we can see that it has a Kevlar rear case - just like the last Motorola Droid smartphones introduced by Verizon. Speaking of, this slate was supposed to be available at Verizon, as the carrier’s logo (including the 4G LTE label) is visible on its back, alongside a camera with LED flash. Reportedly, the tablet’s powered by a quad-core processor of unknown provenience - and that's all we know about its features. The device seems to have a 10-inch display, while being thinner than Apple’s iPhone 5s (7.6mm).
Take a look at the alleged Moto Xoom 3 tablet in the slideshow below, and let us know if you'd wanted Motorola to release it.

I bought the first Xoom tablet and let me tell ya it's been the worse electronic device ever produced. Moto made a bunch of promises and never kept them.

Yeah I felt very disappointed by the original Atrix... but I think today's Moto is a better focused Company (or sub-division) and the few products that makes, they make them very good...

Does it come standard with fingerprints and a permanent light reflection or is that just an option?

Moto should reinvent the atrix with their lapdock good thinking of software just expand on it

From what I can decipher from your comment, you like the Kevlar back. I agree. It offers much better grip than plastic, metal or glass and it even looks good :)

I'm assuming this is what was in the package from those non-Edward Norton commercials DROID commercials last year after the new DROIDs came out. I'm still tablet-less & was gonna get this but obviously it's not coming out.

I've had several tablets, Android and Apple and I still find myself using my original wifi Xooms - most functional work tablet, easy to repair - made right the first time - still have interest in exploring the 8" media tablet Motorola made - Lenovo hasn't done such a bad job on their tablets either, Thinkpad Tablet 2 stands out for me - the new ThinkPad 8 inch tablet is hot - Windows 8 tablets that you can actually do work from - yah, yah, Windows 8 - what I really wanted was the Samsung Ativ Q

They should have released it. I had the original Xoom WiFi version and it was built like a champ.
