Motorola unveils Droid Xyboard tablets

Melissa J. Perenson | Dec. 7, 2011
Second-generation tablets introduce new screen size and new design.

The tablets will also have preloaded apps for business, most notably Quickoffice HD and Citrix GoToMeeting; and Motorola says they will have “enterprise-grade security,” though the company's available materials don't specify what those features are.

Of the two tablets, the Droid Xyboard 10.1 is being targeted at business users in part because of its larger display (which is better for productivity) and in part because it includes a stylus.

The Droid Xyboard 10.1 will come in three versions: 16GB for $530, 32GB for $630, and 64GB for $730 (all prices assume a new two-year LTE service contract). The Droid Xyboard 8.2 will come in two version: 16GB for $430, and 32GB for $530 (again, with new two-year contract).

Lost amidst the announcement of the new tablets is the fate of the original Xoom, still for sale at Verizon. Motorola says that model will continue to be sold, but the company did not have any information beyond that at this time.
