Motorola Mobility Droid XyboardAvailable in both the standard 10-inch and smaller 8-inch screen sizes (both sporting the same 1,280-by-800 resolution), the Xyboard is a Xoom 2 by another name. Given that the Xoom never lived up to expectations as the first Android iPad killer, it's not surprising Motorola changed the name, but the Xyboard fixes most of the original's flaws and does promise an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade.
