Well, it turns out that the rumors were correct. The Motorola XOOM 2 and its little brother, the XOOM 2 Media Edition, will both carry the DROID XYBOARD branding when they launch on Verizon...

Um. Xyboard? Is that supposed to be a homophone for "cyborg"?

Silly name meaning nothing... good job, Moto.

Yay! A 2-year contact on a tablet that will be obsolete in a month.

No offense to anyone, but my smartphone does everything that these tablets do plus more.

I'll stick with my laptop for the time being, it's small enough.

No bueno, Verizon.

the Droid branding will definitely help these things get out the door. i can't wait to see the marketing campaign they throw for these things. i'd take a Media Edition myself for a good deal.

Hey! I have one of these now, but mine makes phone calls, has a smaller screen, fits in my pocket, and costs less! Plus its way more handy! And better battery life! Its called a Droid RAZR. Seriously...this is stupid. IF most people actually had a real good excuse to need a tablet...just get a Asus T-Prime.

Maybe Motorola hates tablets. Xyboard? Really?!
