Verizon Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 and 8.2 tablets now available online, in stores on December 12
The Motorola Droid Xyboard tablets are now available to buy online from Verizon. These are Big Red’s versions of the Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition, and they come in 10.1-inch and 8.1-inch sizes, respectively.
The release today comes to contradict two previous rumors, one of which had it pegged for yesterday (close enough, though) and the other said something about December 12. A quick note here – the tablets may not be out on sale in Verizon stores yet, so that date may refer to in-store availability after all.
The prices being asked are well on the steep side, especially considering that you’ll need to sign a two-year data contract as well. The Droid Xyboard 8.2 will cost you $429.99 with 16 GB of storage, and $529.99 with 32 GB of space.
The Droid Xyboard 10.1 16 GB goes for $529.99, and the 32 GB variant is $100 more at $629.99. This tablet also comes with 64 GB of storage, but you’ll have to shell out an insane $729.99 for that one.
To choose and order your desired Xyboard, head to Verizon right now.
Update: Verizon has confirmed that the Xyboards will be up for grabs in stores on Monday, December 12.
