Conclusion

It should be interesting to see how well Motorola dealt with the TFT screen of the Xoom holding it back a little bit with the Xyboard. The IPS display should offer a better viewing angle, but as we haven't tested the tablet yet, we can't know for sure how the new display will affect performance.

We're also seeing the IR blaster being attached to many of the flagship tablets this year, so this may be a feature that sticks around for some time. Or not. It's too early to tell if this is a feature that will catch on, though it certainly has its advantages for the user who wants to integrate all of their gadgets into one slate that will control everything in their household.

Until we get an opportunity to lab test these tablets (in all probability, that will be next week when they are released), we can't tell you how the Xyboard performs, but rest assured that we will subject these tablets to the horror that is our testing regimen. Check back later for full results.
