Motorola Xyboard review

 

Wireless printing and video streaming set the Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 apart from the crowd

Choosing between the Galaxy Tab and the Xyboard is not so easy, given how similar they are in most respects. Their aesthetics are different, with the Galaxy Tab having a friendlier, more iPad-like look, versus the Xyboard's darker impression (regarding...

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 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...

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

 

Earlier this year Motorola's first tablet the XOOM launched as the first Honeycomb tablet and had plenty of promise. Sadly the hefty size and bloated Verizon 3G data pricing didn't help its cause. We now have the next-gen Xoom happily named the DROID...

Now value is determined more by the user and his/her needs. If you’d like a great WiFi tablet this is not for you. If you’re needing a 3G/4G capable tablet that also manages to be extremely portable and powerful this would probably be my first choice....

Motorola Droid XYBoard 8.2 Review - Android Tablet Reviews by MobileTechReview

 

The Motorola Droid XYBoard 8.2 is the Motorola Droid XYBoard 10.1's little brother on Verizon. But it's not all that little: at 8.2" it offers more to feast your eyes on vs. more common 7" Android tablets, yet it's much more portable than 10" tablets....

Great IPS display, good size compromise, rugged, 4G LTE

Expensive without contract

The Motorola Droid XYBoard's unique size and quality combo set it apart from the me-too tablet fray. It's portable but the screen is roomy enough for enjoyable web browsing and gaming. And that display is extremely sharp and bright thanks to the IPS...
