DROID XYBOARDs Should Be Available Tomorrow Via Direct Fill, All Channels December 12

If the DROID XYBOARD is to be your next tablet, then tomorrow is your day to order one online or to have a Verizon store order one for you. If you want to wait to play with one before droppin’ Benjamins, you will have to try and hold out until Monday when they should available everywhere. So again, XYBOARD available via d-fill (direct fill) tomorrow, all channels on Monday the 12th.

If you would like to see how they compare to the rest of the competition, you can view comparison charts here. Pricing information here.

    overpriced and underpowered and also not the nexus

  • Granted

    10 of the 24 comments so far here are not even about the post. It’s funny I bet all of these pathetic people would be the first to go all up in arms if they were on another site and someone hijacked post. But no, the automatons here stupidly keep oiling the marketing gears.

    You need a lot of extra disposable income and a severe lack of common sense to buy one of these for more than the $99 they’re worth.  Another rushed-to-market wonder, I’m sure.

    “Fast enough to break the sound barrier” – really?  Marketing fluff, all of it.

    Does this mean that it can switch release dates with the Galaxy Nexus? I know that technically the DXB isn’t being released on all channels until Monday, but it’s still a release nonetheless. Verizon, please fix all the hiccups and count this as switching release dates by releasing the Galaxy Nexus on Monday!

    Motorola needs help naming devices……at least xoom was catchy! Xy board is a horrible name, may as well call it the Motorola cardboard!

    I have a very good feeling that all these Motorola releases are Google’s plan of “flushing” all the crap devices down the toilet. I am no Motorola fanboy (cough*angelface*cough), but I know with Google at the reins, Motorola will rise from the shithole it dug itself into the past few years.

    How are they gonna release this and not the nexus? When was this even announced, like a week or two ago?

  • IseWise

    Where is the Nexus? Why is Verizon releasing trash and updating trash phones and not getting us te Nexus?

    • Anonymous

      I hope Verizon cancels the Nexus and all stock is ordered for destruction. Then all the Nexus sheep can go take a flying leap and we can get on with real android news and the quad core devices coming at CES.

        Cancel the Nexus?  Are you serious?  Verizon has done a real bang-up job of trying to effectively take over the Android platform with it’s `Droid marketing campaign and in the process has helped run Motorola into the ground.  Guess who’s picking up the tab for that?  Oh, that’s right, they got Google to bail them out.

        Open source / open network / open communications is not something Verizon seems to be very interested in, just raping our wallets and telling us how much we should like it.

          You can’t rape the willing. You’re free to cancel your contract at anytime.

    I used to love Motorola, now I hate them. Motorola has diarrhea of the assembly line and Verizon wont release the Nexus the same week as a Moto product because it might hurt sales. I almost feel like Motorola is about to announce another brand new product that will launch in February and some how end up pushing the nexus into March.

      You might have a point if the Xyboard was a cell phone.

  • Dave

    I guess that kind nix that whole idea of LTE outage being the issue that delayed the nexus. What a load of bull. 

  • richard melcher

    no news about Nexus having arrived in Verizon stores and awaiting to sell tomorrow morning? what was with all the best buy shipping dates and stuff? can they call UPS and say bring the shipments back…

    The price of this thing on contract is absurd. Give me NEXUS!
