Reviews for the Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1"
Source: PC Mag
The Motorola Xyboard isn't a bad tablet. It's good looking, and it works. But it doesn't stand out in a crowd of similar Android tablets, all with the same Honeycomb-based problems, and it's more expensive than the others.

People that read my reviews frequently might have noticed about my preference for smaller tablets over larger ones. I simply find a 10.1-inch tablet unwieldy, even if it is relatively light. As such, I greatly prefer the cheaper 8.2-inch Droid Xyboard over the 10.1-inch model. Both are very nice, or at least as much so as Android Honeycomb allows, and they offer blazing LTE data speeds. Price and required monthly data contracts will be their undoing though. In a world where Apple's iPad 2 is available for the same price as the Xyboard 10.1 and Amazon is offering a solid 7-inch Android tablet for less than half the cost of the 8.2, Motorola will be fighting uphill battles. Even if they are pretty nice machines.

When the Motorola Xoom was launched with Honeycomb, I was slightly disappointed by its hardware design and the below average quality of the display. Consequently, I was happily surprised when I saw the Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 for the first time, the chassis design is sleek and elegant and the IPS display offers high contrast and great color accuracy.

The question that’ll be popping up on most XOOM owners minds at one point or another now is this: should I upgrade? With a tablet that’s got such a similar processor and a display that’s not especially improved over the original XOOM, it’s essentially only the chassis and the fact that you can no longer use a microSD card that should sway you in one direction or the other – not to mention the money you’ll have to drop to move from one model to the next. If you’ve already got a tablet, I’ll say, this probably isn’t going to seem like much of an improvement over the model you’ve already got.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for small tablets.
Motorola: The 1928 founded company was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility Inc. focusses on mobile phones and started with a first Motorola tablet computer.
60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
