Pre-orders for the Wi-Fi versions of the Motorola XYBOARD 8.2 and 10.1 are now available
Sometimes, you really have to wonder why manufacturers decide on releasing cellular connected versions of tablets first before Wi-Fi only ones. Of course, some of you might think of it to be a kiss of death of some sort, especially when 3G/4G tablets tend to be priced significantly higher. Well folks, there’s the matter of exclusives, which in the case that we saw with Motorola’s DROID XYBOARD tablets.

At least this time around, Motorola is quicker in releasing the Wi-Fi versions of the Motorola XYBOARD 8.2 and 10.1 – and in fact, pre-orders are now readily available for them. If you’re seriously intent on picking either of these two Wi-Fi only tablets, you can actually head on over to Motorola’s web site right now to place you pre-order for them.

In terms of pricing, the Motorola XYBOAD 8.2 will set you back $399.99, while the 10.1 model will go for an additional $100 more at $499.99. Fortunately, it seems as though Motorola did some homework this time around, because they priced the tablets at under the established golden price of $500, which is something we normally expect with most top-notch tablets.

Rather than being forgotten, we’re certain that these two XYBOARDs are going to compete very well against the competition. And considering they’ll be upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich down the road, there are absolutely no reasons why you shouldn’t pick either of them. As it stands, if you place your pre-order right now, you can expect delivery sometime during the week of January 23rd.
