Verizon confirms its Motorola Droid Xyboards in LTE anniversary announcement
In a press release announcing that its 4G LTE network is now one year old (since it was launched back in December 5, 2010), Verizon Wireless has officially confirmed that it would launch two new LTE tablets manufactured by Motorola.
The tablets – already seen in some hands-on photos – will be both called Droid Xyboard. It remains to be seen how exactly Verizon will differentiate them, since one has a 10.1 inch display, and the other one an 8 inch screen.
The new Droid Xyboards are rebranded versions of the Motorola Xoom 2 and Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition – introduced not long ago in Europe with Android Honeycomb, 1GB of RAM, rear and front-facing cameras, and dual-core Nvidia processors. The Xyboards could become available at Verizon starting December 8.
Verizon also mentioned that the “anxiously awaited Galaxy Nexus smartphone running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich” is “coming soon.” Apparently, the Galaxy Nexus is already making its way to Verizon stores, so it could be released on December 9, as rumored last week.
