Motorola Xyboard 8.2

 

The march of the Honeycomb tablets goes on, playing a tune that's starting to get a bit muted thanks to the promise of fresher beats coming from Ice Cream Sandwich. Still, there are plenty of ways for manufacturers to add their own bit of swing to the...

Hand-friendly design ; Integrated IR emitter ; Great LTE performance

High cost including contract ; Mid-range performance for a modern tablet ; No expandable storage

The Motorola Xyboard 8.2 is a perfectly fine slate that's comfortable to hold and to use but fails to stand among the competition.

Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2 is a fine Android tablet, but it doesn't stand out.

Great look. Integrated 4G.

Short battery life. Expensive.

Performance and Conclusions The Xyboard 8.2 is pretty much a smaller clone of the 10.1, with most of the same components and the same software build, although it doesn't have the pop-up notepad software to work with the 10.1's capacitive stylus. I...

Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2 (Verizon Wireless)

 

Although consumers' appetite for subsidized tablets has never been strong, carriers keep rolling them out. Case in point: the Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2. Riding Verizon Wireless' blazing 4G LTE network and sporting a 1280 x 800 IPS display, this...

Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 (Verizon Wireless) Review

 

The Droid Xyboard 10.1 is a vast improvement over the Motorola Xoom . It's dramatically thinner and lighter, offers a much better display, and boasts best-in-class sound. We also appreciate the super-fast 4G LTE speeds and this slate's ability to...

Fast 4G LTE Speeds with mobile hotspot capability, Lightweight design, Bright display, Great sound, Remote control capability

Expensive, Laggy performance at times, Takes too long to charge the battery, Stylus not very useful

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

 

This week we've seen two Motorola tablets, both of them with essentially the same name DROID XYBOARD, this the smaller of the two at 8.2-inches in screen size. While the 10.1-inch display sized iteration costs a bit more and does afford you a bit more...

This tablet is nice, and if you rule out the facts that it’ll cost you an arm and a leg to first purchase it then pay each month for 4G LTE connectivity, you’ve got a nice tablet on your hands. I find myself very skeptical that there’s a real need for...

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

 

As we take a trip back down to memory lane with the Motorola XOOM, the very first device to feature Google's pure tablet-optimized platform, we realize that things didn't necessarily go as planned for the tablet. Coming back for round two, the Motorola...

Motorola Xyboard

 

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

Very lightweight.; Easy to grip.; Full version of Android 3

Color performance a bit low

The Motorola Xyboard is a very impressive, feature-laden tablet that will undoubtedly push other competitors in the tablet arena to focus on capability-driven performance. While many of its performance points like hardware and interface are very...

Motorola Droid XYBOARD review

 

It's been a long year for Android tablets. Motorola was first to the Honeycomb party with the Motorola Xoom. And while it was the quasi-official developer tablet (and really no slouch of a devic...

And we're really not knocking the XYBOARD's hardware -- it's damn nice. But it's damn nice for 2011. Nothing wrong with that at all, but we can't help but wonder how long it'll take Motorola to get some quad-core fare, and that gives us pause in...
