When Motorola launched the original Xoom last spring, the first Android Honeycomb tablet turned heads with an attractive, widescreen-friendly interface, but its bulky design, high price, and buggy performance held it back. Now that a slew of other Android tablets have come to market, Motorola’s back with the Droid Xyboard 10.1, a sequel with a lighter and thinner design, a new 1.2-GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor, universal remote control capability, and Verizon 4G LTE baked in from the start. (No need to upgrade this slate after you buy.) However, the Xyboard 10.1 is only available on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, where it starts at $529 with a two-year contract. Is this tablet really worth that kind of commitment?
