Just stumbled across this thread & it's definitely a welcome addition to A/F.


Anyone actually own the DROID XYBOARD, or even know of someone who owns this rare bird?

It's actually a nice tablet, but, more than likely stuck on ICS 4.0.4,which isn't too shabby,but, would be a long-term keeper w/JB.

Anyone w/links for development on this lonely soul of a tablet feel free to PM, post here, or in the barren desert known as the XYBOARD Forum.

At least with samsung, you get that few mm on the top for the rest of your homescreen, and the bottom bar isn't so bare. Plus you get a screenshot button that works inside ANY app. And yes it can be changed to various options, like appdrawer (if you want to use a different homescreen) or search.

It's working out pretty good for me. I do like it with ICS. One reason I purchased the Tab2 instead of a N7 was the keyboard, it was the student edition when I bought it.

Mikedt, I'll stick with the Belgium Beer, Budweiser!

I have a BT Zagg keyboard for my N7. Not the perfect solution but works quite well. Not a huge fan of typing on large screens since I have small thumbs.
Wasn't able to use ICS on my 10.1, but their interface on honeycomb wasn't terribly intrusive.

I have a xoom 2 media edition wich is the Xyboard 8.2 they just have a different name for it in europe. It is a really good tablet but since it didnt sell brilliantly motorola have seem to pushed it aside. It really should get JB as its well capable but it looks like it wont. Ah well

Given that the OG XOOM (WI-FI only) upgrades have been frozen @ JB 4.1.1, & the XOOM2/XYBOARD line has better specs, one would think that MOTOROLA would continue to support these tablets w/upgrades, as they have yet to offer anything else in their tablet line-up since the introduction of the XOOM2/XYBOARD.

It appears all their efforts are concentrated on their phone line-up ATM, as they've recently dropped support/development of the WEBTOP/LAPDOCK program. Hopefully, they'll stay active in the tablet market & continue to support the XOOM2/XYBOARD w/upgrades,at least until they release a successor to the XOOM2/XYBOARD.
W/O any news/rumors of anything new from MOTOROLA in the tablet segment, one would think that a JB upgrade would be pending, but, the MOTO site doesn't give a hint to the future of the upgrades for these devices one way or the other.

Some JB luv from Santa would be a nice surprise on Christmas morning........

What do you guys use your tablet for?

I currently own a galaxy tab 10.1 rooted with 4.1. With the big buzz surrounding the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, that got me thinking about upgrading my tablet. Which got me thinking, what do I really use this for?

Really, all I do with my tablet is:
- surf the web
- watch youtube videos
- watch netflix videos
- read my kindle books
- I like games, but I'm not a hardcore gamer.
- don't use it for music either

And I feel that's about it. Everything else, I just use my phone since it's always with me.

Anybody else feel like this? Or do you see your tablet as essential as your phone?

YE thats pretty much what i use my tab for. i also use it for work but it is in no way as essential as my phone but that dosnt mean you shouldnt get a new one as the better the tab you have the more possibilities. Know im convincing myself to get a new one.

Surf the web, bit of YouTube/Facebook and some games. Watch Breaking Bad on it and sometimes listen to a bit of music. Handy when I go on the coach down to London, as the 4 hours doesn't seem that bad then.

One of the reasons I haven't upgraded yet is that the A500 has the full sizes USB port and I've seen an app that lets you plug the tablet in to your DSLR and control it from there. Haven't bought it but, while ever I have the A500, it's a possibility.

As I've said earlier in this thread, I really get the feeling that I'm gonna jump ship soon. The A500 section on here doesn't seem to have so many active members... when I first joined, I spent all my time in the DHD section and there was always a buzz in there. There are still quite a few people in there (have been more new people recently)... think that it's quite nice to be part of a busy community... pretty sure that the N7 (or N10 for that matter) sub-forums are likely to be busy for a while to come!

I see. Yes, the response in part, was a reply to your liking Saptech siggy.

The response concluded with a reply (in this group of doscussion) for Saptech, who replied to "my" post in this discussion regarding your poll of name ideas for this particular "watering hole" where the poll include e.g.Bistro as option #2

If I am mistaken, I am under the impression that this is still an open discussion e.g.. Name ideas.

Hmm .. I dunno. Sounds more like a place to put a suppository.

TGIW, Thank God its Wednesday. Why do all the idiots wait until the last minute on the day before a holiday to order all the things they forgot the rest of the week?!

There .. I feel better.

And the more I use my Nexus 10 the more I love it. I was on it about 6 hours straight last night, surfin', you tubin', and still had about 50% battery left. And Bohemian Rhapsody sounded great.

Not bad!

I started a new job (at the same company) a couple of weeks ago and things are all quiet at the moment... waiting for a new system to be implemented, at which point, things will go mad for a couple of weeks!

How's about you?

I've boycotted Engadget ever since they had that sorry excuse of an article comparing camera phones. They made the best camera phone at the time (Nokia N8) take the worse pictures. It wasn't even close how bad the N8 pictures were compared to the iP4, SGS 1 and others.

I checked the site and it seems faster than the old one.

I'm not a fan of typing on any screen. That is why I got the Transformer with a keyboard dock. The keyboard is only 90% of the size of a regular one. It took me about a month to get used to the size. I can type on the keyboard dock about 90% the speed of a full size keyboard.

I tried the Windows Surface tablets. I really like the type cover on those. It feels just like a real keyboard. The only thing is you cannot turn off the touch pad like you can on the Transformer. While I was typing on the Surface type cover, I kept hitting the touch pad causing the cursor to jump to a new location. Very annoying.

Really, all I do with my tablet is:
- surf the web
- watch youtube videos
- watch netflix videos
- read my kindle books
- I like games, but I'm not a hardcore gamer.
- don't use it for music either

And I feel that's about it. Everything else, I just use my phone since it's always with me.

Anybody else feel like this? Or do you see your tablet as essential as your phone?
For me is surf, emails, social networks, and Netflix. I hardly play games on it or on my phone. I manage my music on my PC and copy it to my phone. I also like the fact that can hook my tablet up to my TV and watch Netflix on a larger screen. I also use my tablet as a poker timer for my home games. I hook it up to the TV for this as well.

OK, I'm glad that there are other people that use the tablet like me. Over the past few days I too have been convincing myself to get a new tablet too. Initially my knee-jerk reaction was the Nexus 10. Done. But then I started reading about the Kindle Fire HD and call me crazy, but I'm beginning to think that this is the best tablet out there for me.

- The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 undercuts the Nexus 10. The 32GB KFHD is cheaper than the 16GB Nexus 10.

- The KFHD does everything I do on my tablet.

- You can't beat the KFHD in terms of content. You have more access to Amazon content on the Kindle- namely the videos and magazines.

- The focus of the Kindle Fire HD is so narrow that it is future proofed in a funny way. When the next great tablet comes out with Android 5.0, it will make other tablets look outdated. With a KFHD- google now, lock screen widgets, dont matter. As long as the tablet can surf the web, watch video, and read books/magazines, it's good. Even if the next gen KFHD allows Google Play and widgets- big deal, I have it on my phone and play with those apps.

- There is less of an overlap with my phone- this is a problem I noticed with my iPhone/iPad combo and my Samsung GS3/GT10.1 combo now. The KFHD will be the go to device for content consumption. It won't be a wi-fi only S3 with a bigger screen and all the same apps on it.

- Locked down? Yes. But you can sideload apps and root it

Now the problem is that I got an e-mail today saying one of my credit cards has $345 that I can use at Amazon for anything...

It sounds like that could be the tab for you. Just don't go and buy the.nexus 10 just because everyone.says its the best if the kindle is more suited to your.needs then that is the tab for you.
