Re: Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Tips and Tricks

Motorola has released 10.1 version of Xyboard. This helps you to get a HD display, some streaming support via Motocast and more better performance. It has 5 megapixel camera, 802.11 a,b,g,n, Stereo Bluetooth technology 2.1+EDR, etc. Equipped with android the new version is rich with more features. Rightnow the last operating system on this was Honeycomb and the battery power of the same is upto 10hrs. I think you must have a look once on this upgraded version.
