Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Here in the LTE version of the newest Google hero phone, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (also known as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE) has not only the unique claim to running Google's newest mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich first, it's also connected to the fastest network in the states, and best of all: you can go to your corner Verizon store and purchase one, unlike the international edition. All that said, you've really got the same device only ever so slightly modified for this particular carrier: Google's vanilla hero phone remains nearly as pure as its first release internationally. What you're going to get here is another perspective on the Galaxy Nexus in general, how ICS handles our day to day, and what it means to own the LTE version of this device here in the USA.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD Accessories Review

Motorola DROID XYBOARD Accessories Review

Color us surprised when we received a box full of Android-oriented Motorola accessories made for the DROID XYBOARD just days after the release of said device and our review of the 10.1-inch version of it - but don't color us dismissive - while we're already basically decided on the fate of both versions of these tablets for now, their accessories are another story. Everything from a leathery encapsulating case and keyboard to the most versatile HD dock Motorola has ever released for smart devices, this is the box of Verizon-carried official bits you can also purchase when you pick up one or both of the tablets. Have a peek at not only our judgement but hands-on videos galore as well.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

This week we've seen two Motorola tablets, both of them with essentially the same name DROID XYBOARD, this the smaller of the two at 8.2-inches in screen size. While the 10.1-inch display sized iteration costs a bit more and does afford you a bit more screen real-estate, what you're about to see is an account that'll let you know how little you're missing when you go with the slightly more convenient sized 8.2. That and we've got a couple of accessories to peek at as well. Also note that if you're looking for the 10.1-inch version, you've only to check out the timeline after the second paragraph to head on down the rabbit hole.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Review

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Review

When it comes to tablet warfare, Motorola seemed to get out in the open with a weapon of mass excellence with the XOOM pretty early, it being the first to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the first Android made specifically for the tablet form factor - now they've come back with the XOOM 2 aka the DROID XYBOARD and we're not so sure it's the same ground-breaking situation. What we've got here instead is certainly a solid package, this XYBOARD 10.1 making some improvements over the original XOOM, especially in form if you were one of the many people who said the XOOM was a hunk of metal with no style, (note: I was not one of those people, I still think the XOOM looks pretty awesome for the workhorse that it is,) and with LTE right out of the box, the XYBOARD provides the promise that the original XOOM took much MUCH to long to deliver on: 4G LTE connectivity. But is it enough for Motorola enthusiasts to want to upgrade from their first 10.1-inch love?

Verizon Galaxy Nexus announced for sale [UPDATE: Off-contract pricing included]

The device known as the Galaxy Nexus has been formally announced for sale this week via Verizon Wireless, this device being the first LTE smartphone running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and indeed the first Android device running that newest version on the market.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2 hands-on

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2 hands-on

Motorola's first-gen XOOM launched with plenty of promise at the beginning of the year, but Honeycomb - and some expensive data plans from Verizon - left the Android alternative to the iPad looking less than appealing. Now Motorola's second attempt at the segment, the XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2, have arrived, fresh to the SlashGear test bench with new angular styling, faster processors and some special features that might at least give new tablet shoppers an idea what exactly to use big-screen slates for. Read on for our first impressions.

DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and 8.2 in stores today at some Verizon locations

Though earlier today the word was that the online and pre-order sales for the newest Motorola tablet by the name of XYBOARD were the only thing starting today, with in-store sales starting Monday (the 12th), we've now come to find that in some stores across the USA the slates are already in stores ready for sales right this minute! This tablet line comes in two sizes, 8.2-inches and 10.1-inches, the latter providing a next generation for the original Honeycomb tablet in the Motorola XOOOM. These tablets are priced at $429.99 for the 8.2 and $529.99 for the 10.1 both on contract, with various other prices in place for different memory and contractual agreements.

Verizon DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and 8.2 go on sale

Verizon has thrown the DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and 8.2 tablets up for sale, offering Android Honeycomb on a 1.2GHz dual-core in a choice of sizes, though there are questions around whether the carrier has again overpriced its slates. Announced earlier this week as the 4G LTE versions of the Motorola XOOM 2, and rumored not to hit shelves until next week, the two DROID XYBOARD models are priced from $429.99 for the 8.2-inch model and $529.99 for the 10.1-inch model, both demanding a two-year data agreement.

Verizon 4G LTE back online

Verizon 4G LTE back online

Verizon Wireless has restored its 4G LTE network, following an outage over the past 24-36 hours that saw customers dumped back onto 3G or even 2G data connections. The cause of the outage is yet to be confirmed - Verizon said only that it was a "technical issue" - but subscribers across the US were impacted as the high-speed service went offline, embarrassingly just days after the carrier had celebrated its first year of 4G service.
