Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Review
Included in the retail box is the Motorola DROID 10.1 tablet (available with 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of internal memory), wall charger, microUSB data cable, stylus pen, and user guides.
The Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 isn’t overtly big, coming in at 6.8”H x 9.9”W x 0.34”D, but does feel a bit heavy at 1.3 lbs. The device appears well built, almost like a tank, using premium materials, which gives it a nice sturdy feel. It has angled corners, just like the DROID RAZR smartphone, which give it an aggressive styling, and we welcome the soft-touch coating on the back edges.
The 10.1” IPS-enhanced HD Display carries the same 1280x800 resolution as its 8.2” brother. Colors are vibrant but we did notice some loss in contrast when viewed at extreme angles, which in regular daily use is not a concern.
On the right back-edge is the power/lock button and volume rocker. They can be a bit difficult to locate at times, since it has the same soft-touch coating on it and doesn’t protrude any. Along the bottom edge is the 4G SIM card slot and the microUSB and microHDMI ports, and up on top is the 3.5mm headset jack and IR blaster, which can be used with the Dijit app to turn the tablet into an universal remote control. Above the display is a 1.3MP camera, and on the rear is a 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash that can also record HD videos. On either side of it is a pair of stereo speakers that does remarkably well with music playback.
