The Motorola XOOM 2 Xyboard tablets that launched last month on Verizon as the DROID XYBOARD tablets are about to be available soon for those looking for a WiFi only model. The tablets come in both an 8.2-inch and 10.1-inch flavors and are finally up for pre-order and are coming soon.

Motorola XYBOARD 8.2 and 10.1 WiFi models now up for pre-order

Both tablets launched on Verizon under the DROID branding and are actually quite awesome. We’ve reviewed both the 10 and 8.2″ models here and those are linked to below. Coming with dual-core procesors, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and super thin they are definetaly a step up from the original Xoom. Sadly they were priced way to high in my honest opinion and should hopefully do better being priced lower and WiFi only.

With the recent announcement by ASUS at CES of their quad-core Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powered MeMO 7″ tablet for just $249 I don’t see Motorola selling many of these tablets. The 8.2″ starts at $399 for the WiFi model and $499 for the 10.1″ flavor. Making them under-powered and overpriced compared to the competition — as they only have dual-core processors on board. While Motorola has announced they’ll all be upgraded to Android 4.0 ICS in due time, I still find these prices a little too high and a tough sell.

Thoughts? Who will be picking up one of these lightweight and portable tablets from Motorola?
