Verizon Wireless has officially confirmed the existence of its upcoming Motorola Droid Xyboard Android tablets, announcing the two devices in its press release celebrating the company’s one year anniversary of its 4G LTE network.
According to previous reports, the Xyboard tablets will run on the carrier’s 4G LTE network. News first surfaced of the Droid tablets last month when it was rumored that Verizon would rebrand the Xoom tablets under the Xyboard moniker. The tablets do sport a remarkable likeness to the Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition that recently launched in Europe, which likely indicates they are the same devices by different names.
Both tablets will pack a 1.2GHz processor, rumored to be dual-core despite a confirmation from Verizon or Motorola, as well as 1GB RAM. The tablets are also said to feature a 5MP rear camera, in addition to a 1.3MP front-facing shooter. Both will ship with Corning Gorilla Glass, though one tablet will sport a 10-inch design and stylus support, while its Media Edition counterpart will offer an 8-inch display.
The rumor mill has been turning for quite some time on these devices, with reports claiming a Dec. 8 release date. Looks like we’ll only have to wait a few days to find out.
