Other than the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Samsung, hardly any Android tablet has been able to generate impression amongst buyers. The Galaxy Tab has, in fact, been packed with nice features, which has enabled it to remain the best Android tablet for nearly six months since it has been launched. However, it seems that the latest tablet from Motorola Mobility, the Droid Xyboard may be able to pose significant challenge to the Samsung tablet.
It operates on the Android 3.2 Honeycomb similar to the Samsung Galaxy Tab but is proposed to be upgraded to the Ice Cream Sandwich in 2012 itself. Hence, initially the experts did not feel that the Xyboard would not be a vastly different tablet. However, it has been provided with certain features that is going to make it stand out among the other Android tablets.
A rear camera of 5MP provided to it is of a higher range than what most tablets are provided with,; however images it generates is just around average quality. It has also been provided with a tapered, unique bezel, which is quite comfortable for gripping. It has also bee provided with a stylish design.
The only flaw noticed in its hardware positioning is the manner in which the Sleep/Wake button has been placed next to the volume controls, which increases the probability of putting the tablet to sleep while increasing volumes. 4G radio has been in-built and provides fast cellular connectivity, particularly in areas where its network has been installed. The best part is that this tablet has been provided with apps that effectively mix business with pleasure.
