Motorola has begun taking pre-orders for a Wi-Fi only version of the Xyboard. Losing the Droid name from Verizon, they remain identical on the inside and cost significantly less. The Motorola Xyboard tablets all feature the same specs as the previously released Verizon DROID Xyboard tablets minus the LTE radios. The Xyboard 8.2 will be priced at $399.99 for 16GB and $499.99 for 32GB. The Xyboard 10.1 will cost $499.99 for the 16GB while the 32GB version will be $599.99 – that’s about $200 less than what you would have to pay for 4G.
If you chose the latter, Motorola’s now taking pre-orders for the Wi-Fi only tablet with plans to ship on January 18th, Where you get a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, Android 3.2 (upgradable to Android 4.0), 1280 x 800 IPS-enhanced display, 5MP camera with LED flash, 1.3MP front camera, and Wi-Fi.
Presumably Motorola intends to show off the tablets next week at CES, and if they do we’ll be sure to let you know how they stack up.
