Droid XYBOARD Accessories Arriving at Verizon


The Motorola Droid XYBOARD, in both 10.1 and 8.2-inch varieties, is barreling towards a launch at Verizon. There is no set release date for the first tablet entries into the Droid lineup, but accessories arriving in Verizon stores are as good a sign as any that it could be soon. Seen in stock were docking stations, screen protectors, and a Smart Cover-esque “protective portfolio.” The packaging provides a glimpse of the XYBOARD channeling Ghost Rider with its fiery Droid eye.

Both slates will be 4G LTE equipped out of the box and should be available with several storage options ranging from 16GB to 64GB. Prices on-contract could range from $429 for the lowest capacity 8.2-inch model to $729 for the highest capacity 10.1-inch XYBOARD. Will updated hardware and a new name be enough to propel the XYBOARD past the so-so sales of the original Motorola XOOM on Verizon? We will be finding out soon enough.

  1. The marketing people who came up with this name need to be fired.

  2. I may have missed it somewhere, but how in the world is it pronounced?  Ex Why Board? Cybord? Exee Board?  I’m still confused.

    1. Dorkboard… Seriously, why not just the Xoom2.  Agree with comment above about price.  Com’n!!!!  Seriously, didn’t you guys learn the first time.   The reason kindle fires are selling is because of PRICE!!.  make the 16GB 10.1 of this thing $349 and the 32GB $399 and watch how fast they sell!

  3. I’ve been calling it the X.Y. Board. I only JUST realized it’s suppose to be pronounced like Cyborg. WTF marketing team?!

  4. XY is pronounced Cy.  It isn’t that difficult to figure out

    1. Clearly it can be taken in multiple ways, as I’m not the only one asking the question.  Thanks for the education though.

    2. You may be wrong.. I think it’s ZY board.. as in xylophone..  Although X Y could refer to coordinates on a 2D plane.

  5. Those are contract prices? Way overpriced.

  6. I always read it X. Y. board

  7. No thanks, Transformer Prime me please :)
