Motorola Xyboard Tablet Review
For those of you looking for a media powerhouse, this tablet has the most features we've seen in a long while.
Motorola Xoom Comparison
Device & Specs
Despite the fact that both have somewhat comparable hardware, the Xoom is not only clunkier, but it's definitely not as durable as the Xyboard with its nano-tube protective layer. The Xoom is also heavier, but because they run on a similar platform (both run Android 3), the user experience is also very similar.
Both have TFT LCD screens, but Motorola really ramped up the peak brightness for the Xyboard, laving the Xoom in the dust. Both have their issues with color gamut, however.
We're not sure how or why, but the Motorola Xyboard lags behind its bigger brother by a huge margin in terms of battery life. While the Xoom is one of the best ever on TabletReaderInfo.com, the Motorola Xyboard is thoroughly mediocre by this measure. If battery life is your thing, definitely go for the Xoom.
As an eReader, the Motorola Xyboard has the advantage of being lighter, easier to hold, and has the exact same support for eReader software that the Xoom does. Unfortunately it does not have the same battery life, but holding onto a huge slate like the Xoom definitely gets tiring after a while. It's your call here.
Because both tablets run teh same operating system with access to the same software, this comparison is really a push.
