Motorola’s Droid Xyboard tablets are getting ready for its Verizon debut, but before that, they must get tested at the FCC. The picture below showed up in the authority’s official documents, showing that the devices are ready for their approval and launch. I’m talking about the 8.2 inch and 10.1 modes, of course.
These ones appeared with CDMA/EvDO connectivity and LTE radios and they’ll also come with Android 3.2 and 1.2GHz dual core processors. 5MP cameras are also included and aside from diagonal, these slates are very similar. Verizon is expected to announce prices for the products in the following days/weeks. Hopefully, the tablets will be made available before Christmas time.
Honestly, the Motorola Xoom really needs a successor and considering it sold around 100k units, that explains why Moto felt the need to get rid of the Xoom branding, that brings on bad memories. Will the new and improved “Xooms” perform better than their predecessor? Well, at least they won’t have an $800 launch price… that’s for sure.
