Motorola Xyboard 10.1 video review

The Motorola Xyboard 10.1 is a decent device, if a bit after its time. Though one of the chief reasons the original Xoom didn’t sell well was its $600 to $700 price, Motorola hasn’t lowered the bar much. A 16GB Wi-Fi Xyboard will run you $500, with an LTE version costing $530. This pricing is in line with the Apple iPad 2, but far more expensive than most Android tablets these days, which are now priced between $200 and $400 by most manufacturers.

Still, if you want a solid Android tablet that competes with the iPad on weight and thickness, plus 4G LTE connectivity, this is probably your best bet, unless you’re in one of the few markets served by AT&T’s blossoming LTE network (go for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE in that case). It’s constructed well, has standard specs, and it should be getting an Android 4.0 update soon. If you have the money, the Xyboard is a good buy.
