Reviews Word on the street for the Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1

Well, the Xyboard isn't the fastest tablet we've seen, nor the thinnest, the lightest, the brightest, or the longest-lasting.

The 8.2- and 10.1-inch tablets have thinner designs, better cameras, IPS displays, 1.2GHz processors, IR blasters for controlling your TV, and LTE baked inside (let’s not rehash the Xoom’s nightmare upgrade process).


7.1 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Network technology

But you do have to sign up for a month-to-month plan (no strings attached and you do get lusciously fast LTE 4G in the deal) at the minimum.

Verizon's LTE network 4G speeds were impressively fast, allowing us to download a 19MB app in 22 seconds, while the same file took 16 seconds on Wi-Fi.

At least this time around, the 4G comes baked in.

Operating system

The original Xoom was the first tablet to ever ship with Google’s Honeycomb OS for tablets, and unfortunately, the new version of the tablet still suffers from many of the original shortcomings of the OS.
by The Verge (Dec, 2011)
By combining high-end hardware with Google's latest tablet-optimized Honeycomb software and Verizon's high-speed mobile network, Motorola could have another hit on its hands.
by c|net (Dec, 2011)
On Mac OS X, the XYBoard doesn't mount using the usual Android File Transfer app for Honeycomb, nor does it mount as a mass storage device in Windows.

The display gets yucky fast.
by MobileTechReview (Dec, 2011)
We installed the Zinio magazine reader and simply basked in the visual glory of National Geographic on this vivid IPS display.
by MobileTechReview (Dec, 2011)
It has a very good IPS display that shames the Xoom.

Operating System

That test taxes the processor significantly — in fact, the back of the tablet got quite warm during the test — but in heavy everyday use (testing the camera, browsing, apps, etc.) I got about seven hours.
by The Verge (Dec, 2011)
At first it was the darling of the Android world because it was the first Android Honeycomb tablet.
by MobileTechReview (Dec, 2011)
It's also worth noting that the Xyboard's hardware configuration will be eligible for an Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update in the future.

Experiential speed is good, though the tablet doesn't run leaps and bounds faster than the older Xoom when navigating the UI or running Office apps.
by MobileTechReview (Dec, 2011)
The iTunes integration is sweet, and it uses a UI that's similar to iTunes, so it should be easy for most folks to use.
by MobileTechReview (Dec, 2011)
You can play videos stored on your computer, view photos, play music from your iTunes or other music library and access any other file type you wish (MS Office docs, for example) for viewing or copying to the tablet.
