Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 – A possible ASUS Transformer Prime competitor?


The ASUS Transformer PRIME definitely turned around some heads as it is the first quad-core powered tablet with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor on board. The Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 inch tablet isn’t a quad-core tablet but it does have a dock as an optional accessory.

LTE is the way to go and the Motorola Droid Xyboard has that on board. This means that in an LTE covered territory, users can expect speeds around 22Mbps which is pretty fast to most people. As far as processor is concerned, the Xyboard 10.1 has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM which is the norm for most high-end tablets today. The screen on the other hand utilizes the IPS technology which means that it features color accuracy unlike any other tablet much like the technology behind the Kindle Fire or the iPad for that reason. It also has a stylus as well.

Right now it is powered by Android Honeycomb which is geared to tablets mostly. The default UI given by Motorola can be choppy at times. On board the Droid Xyboard are a few additional applications installed by default such as Amazon Kindle, Evernote (this is where the stylus comes in handy), Madden NFL 12 and a few others. Starting at a price of $530 for a 16GB version, we’re not pretty sure that this is one tablet worth purchasing over the Transformer Prime.
