If you’re excited about Motorola’s latest offering, the DROID Xyboard, then you’re in for a treat, as the device is heading its way to store shelves in as early as second week of December.
According to a MAP (minimum advertised price) list from Verizon leaked to Droid Life, we could see the device in action as early as December 8. Although, the price list didn’t specifically mention “Xyboard” as its official name. Instead, it came out labeled as the “Motorola Tablet.” If everything turns out well, Verizon could already have settled down with the DROID Xyboard as official name for the tablets.
The Xyboard tablets come in two varieties–the 8.2-inch and 10.1-inch versions, which are all set for a December 8 release date. Both versions will feature 16-GB and 32-GB models, with the exception of the 10.1-inch version having a 64-GB model.
Prices range from US$429 to US$729, presumably with a two-year contract with Verizon.
Both tablets will be almost identical in most hardware specs: 1.2-GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, scratch-free Gorilla Glass coating, and 5-MP camera. Both tablets will run on Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
What do you think of the Motorola DROID Xyboard’s prices? While we’re at it, what do you think of the rumored “Xyboard” branding for these Motorola tablets?

price is high, the name “xyboard” is awful. why not “Xoom 2″, that is/was a great name
its hard to spend that kind of money on a tablet with a dual core, when asus is coming out with the quad core PRIME shortly.
XYBoard is starting to grow on me, I guess. Once it is in my hands it will not matter. I will own one the day they are released. As for dual/quad core, does it really matter? If you keep waiting for the next great thing, you will never have anything. The 8″ meets all my wants, size, 4G LTE on Verizon, great performance and ICS in the near future. Price is a little high with a contract but I have spent good money on much dumber things. :)
