Personally, I didn’t know that there is a brand new “Tablet” device released by Motorola after the Motorola Xoom. That why, I didn’t write the Motorola Droid XYBoard and didn’t share the User Guide or the Quick Start Guide of this tablet at this blog, until the this day. Even though, it is a little bit late, late get a closer understanding about this Droid XYBoard.
Droid XYBoard divided into two specific detail. There are Motorola Droid XYBoard 10.1 and Motorola Droid XYBoard 8.2. The 10.1 and 8.2 number indicated the Display diagonal size used by the tablet. At here, we would discuss the XYBoard for 10.1. We’ll gave you the 8.2 later.
Nowadays, the tablet gadget seems to be one of the trend in market which is almost replaced the popularity of Netbook. Yup, in my opinion, sooner or later, the netbook which was had gain it peak popularity on 2008 would be replaced by the Tablet. Then, the tablet era will come. That why many vendor or manufacturer are in pace to released their own tablet, such as the Motorola which released the latest Motorola Droid XYBoard 10.1.
The 10.1 display that uses IPS-enhanced TFT Capacitive touchscreen (some other source mentioned that the XYBoard 10.1 uses HD-IPD LCD capacitive touchscreen, although, I tought this only a guess mode, but the official tech specs of this tablet, said it uses IPS-Enhanced) has 1280 x 800 pixels resolution and and embedded in body of anodized aluminum at size of 253.9 mm x 173.6 mm x 8.80 mm dimension and about 603 grams weight. Btw, Droid Xboard 10.1 also has series code name as MZ617, in which we can said as Motorola Droid XYBoard 101 MZ617.
