Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2 (Verizon Wireless) Review

Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2 (Verizon Wireless) Review

The Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2 delivers impressive 4G LTE speeds and a bright IPS display, but limited endurance, poor design, and short battery life don’t make it worth the high cost.

2.5 stars
(2.5 out of 5)

Although consumers’ appetite for subsidized tablets has never been strong, carriers keep rolling them out. Case in point: the Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2. Riding Verizon Wireless’ blazing 4G LTE network and sporting a 1280 x 800 IPS display, this Android Honeycomb tablet certainly looks the part, and can be stashed more readily in a small bag than its larger sibling, the Xyboard 10.1. But with a price of $529, portability doesn’t come cheap. Read on to find out if the speed is worth the price.
