Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets are now official, coming to Verizon this month
Today, Verizon Wireless officially announced that it will be adding two LTE-enabled tablets to its lineup – the Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and DROID XYBOARD 8.2. Both devices are rebranded versions of the Motorola XOOM 2 and XOOM 2 Media Edition respectively, and are pretty much identical to their European counterparts, save for the LTE radio.

Both tablets are slimmer and lighter than their predecessor, the original Motorola XOOM, and run Android 3.2 Honeycomb out of the box. In terms of hardware, the tablets are pretty similar to one another as they are both powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor backed up by a gig of RAM and have a pair of cameras – a 5-megapixel one on the back and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter. Besides, both of them offer high-definition displays reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass and protected by a water-repellent coating.

However, there are differences that set them apart. While the DROID XYBOARD 10.1 is tailored with business customers in mind, which explains the high-precision stylus it comes with, the DROID XYBOARD 8.2 is a media-centric device that offers 2.1 virtual surround sound.

As far as pricing goes, the DROID XYBOARD 10.1 will come in three models: 16GB for $560, 32GB for $630, and 64GB for $730. The 8.2-inch variant, on the other hand, will be available in two models: 16GB for $430 and 32GB for $530. A 2-year agreement with Verizon will be required. However, you can get $100 off any XYBOARD model with the purchase of a Motorola DROID RAZR with a new 2-year carrier contract.

Verizon confirmed that the two Motorola DROID XYBOARD models will be available both online and in its retail stores later this month. Unfortunately, an exact release date has not been given, but if the rumors are on the right track, we might see the devices landing on Verizon's shelves no later than December 8.

Horrible name for a product. Sure it will be a fine device though.
