Say it ain’t so. Please tell me that Motorola/Verizon aren’t going to rename and rebrand the second edition of their XOOM Android Table to the “Droid XYBoard”. Based on compelling evidence from PocketNow, and considering the company recently applied for the “Xyboard” trademark, one has to think it’s a possibility. Hopefully they read Phandroid and decide to name it something much cooler. Or better yet, let Phandroid readers pick a name.

We’re hoping the following billboard provides proof it will be called the “Droid XOOM” as an upgrade to simply “ Motorola XOOM”- any of this XYboring name would be unforgiveable. But more likely this is an old billboard for the original Motorola Droid XOOM before they hacked off the Droid branding.

The XOOM 2 has been confirmed for the UK and Ireland and sports a 1.2GHz dual-core processor rocking Android 3.2 honeycomb. It will be even more rocking when it’s gets an ICS upgrade, one would assume, but details on that haven’t been provided.

So if YOU could name the next Motorola/Verizon tablet… what would you name it?
