Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets treated to a $50 price drop
Are the Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets not selling too well, or is Verizon simply being generous spellbound by the holiday spirit? Our money would be on the former, but whatever the case may be, the $50 price drop that the DROID XYBOARD tablets have been treated to is more than welcome.
For those who need a reminder, both tablets were made official earlier this month and went on sale three weeks ago. Today, the 8.2-inch model can be had for $379 or $479, depending on whether you want to have 16 or 32 gigs of on-board storage. If the bigger, 10.1-inch is the one you have your mind set on, the 16-gig variant costs $479, while the ones with 32 and 64 gigabytes of storage cost $579 and $679 respectively. However, do not forget that you still need to sign a 2-year contract with Verizon.
But what do you get for your money? In a nutshell, the Motorola DROID XYBOARD are both powered by some pretty capable hardware, namely a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. They run Android 3.2 Honeycomb out of the box and can fly on Verizon's 4G LTE airwaves. For more details, our Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 review might be of help.
So, is anyone taking advantage of the price drop, or would you much rather wait until it gets slashed further down? Or perhaps waiting for the slates bound to appear at CES 2012 is a much better idea? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
