The Motorola Droid Xyboard tablets are $50 less expensive today, following a price cut by Verizon. The two tablets also known as the Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition are now $480 for the 10.1-inch unit and $380 for the 8.2-inch device, both with 16GB and a two-year Verizon contract, which begins at $30 per month for 2GB of data.
The discount is available until 12/31 and also applies to other new Verizon 4G tablets, including the Galaxy Tab models.
The discount does not apply to the unsubsidized price, which is $700 for the 10.1-inch Xyboard and $600 for the 8.2-inch model.
Both Android tablets run Android Honeycomb 3.2, but are confirmed for a full Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade in 2012. They were released with Motorola’s well-recognized Droid branding despite retaining the Xoom moniker overseas. TabletPCReview will have a full review of the Droid Xyboard 8.2 next week.
