Verizon announces Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1, Xyboard 8.2, white Droid Razr
Verizon Wireless has just announced three new LTE Android devices: two tablets and a smartphone.
As expected, the new tablets are the Motorola Droid Xyboard ones, confirmed by the carrier in a press release yesterday. Their official names are according to their screen sizes: Xyboard 8.2, and Xyboard 10.1. Both run Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and feature dual-core 1.2GHz processors, 1GB of RAM, Gorilla Glass displays, Wi-Fi, two cameras (5MP on the back, 1.3MP on the front), and a Dijit app that allows them to “double as a universal remote control with an electronic programming guide for TVs, Blu-ray Disc players, digital video records, and most other consumer electronics.”
Droid Xyboard 10.1:
Droid Xyboard 8.2:
The new Xyboard tablets will be available at Verizon sometime later “this month” – so that rumored December 8 launch date isn’t accurate after all. Here are the rather hefty prices that Verizon will ask for the tablets (all requiring a new 2-yr contract agreement):
- Droid Xyboard 10.1: 16GB – $529.99, 32GB – $629.99, 64GB – $729.99
- Droid Xyboard 8.2: 16GB – $429.99, 32GB – $529.99 (there will be no 64GB version for the Xyboard 8.2)
As for Verizon’s new smartphone, this isn’t new in the true meaning of the word: it’s just a white version of the Motorola Droid Razr (already available in black since November):
The white Razr will be launched “this month” for $299.99 on contract. Like the Droid Xyboard tablets, the white (and black) Droid Razr is upgradeable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
