The Motorola Droid Xyboard, previously released as the Xoom 2 in Europe before being renamed, is an Android-based tablet computer by Motorola Mobility, announced by Motorola on November 3, 2011.[2]

Compared to its predecessor, the Motorola Xoom, Motorola's website said that the Motorola Droid Xyboard would be "10 percent lighter", "33 percent thinner", have an "improved HD 10.1-inch screen", and would be able to "stream PC files to your tablet with MotoCast™".The device is available in 3G and WIFI variants with there being options between an 8.2-inch screen or a 10.1-inch screen model. The website also claims the tablet's 1.2 GHz dual-core processor "boosts speed by 20 percent".[3][clarification needed]

There is an optional active capacitive stylus available, sold separately.

Media Edition[edit]

The Droid Xyboard is also available as a Media Edition.[4] The Motorola website states that the Media Edition will "Stream files from your PC" with "MotoCast™" and has an 8.2-inch "HD widescreen" with "Adaptive virtual surround sound". The Media Edition does not support the active stylus.
