Im still wondering whether ill keep it or go for the 8.2 though, i did like the smaller screen before

Hows the battery life? I returned my xyboard with verizon and want an 8.2 but my acer iconia a100 drains pretty quick.

Not yet. I tried to order it the other day - taking advantage of the free shipping on orders over $75 and free cover and dock with purchase. Got my confirmation and everything (total saving of $110). Then five days later, no emails about shipping or anything. So I called Motorola and they told me the order had been cancelled. (By whom, I don't know, since I didn't cancel it.) And for now, they say they are out of stock on the 10.1 wifi model. Maybe more in next week. I will be patient... I will be patient... I will be patient...

Default It's arrived! But now I have a question...

YAY! It is finally here! So I re-placed my order with Motorola and the 10.1 arrived today. As I sit here typing, I've got it hooked up the charger and it i charging up.

My question now is should there be a stylus? I am looking at the box and it says it comes with the charger, data cable and the little booklets (safety stuff and quick reference). Looking online, it says that the stylus comes with the 10.1 xyboard.

Am I missing something? or maybe the website isn't correct in its statement of "stylus with the 10.1 only"? The page I'm looking at is for the 10.1 wifi version xyboard, and not the Droid xyboard...

Words of wisdom appreciated... thanks!!

For the verizon version the 10.1 has a stylus. the box of the 8.2 doesnt say it does and the verizon reps said that it didnt as well, that only the 10.1 comes with one. Maybe its different for the wifi only version but that would make no sense.

Just got an 8.2 on Saturday. Love it so far! I was a little weary about paying for another data plan, but I think the hotspot feature will ease the pain a bit.

I am really surprised how dead this board is. Thought the xyboard would have more of a following.

It is horribly dead. Its like 1 post every other week. But the 8.2 is awesome. The perfect size and the signal strength is amazing.

Anyway, isn't the xoom 2 just a renamed xyboard?

I think the European version of the Xyboard is known as the Xoom 2.

Have you guys noticed that xyboard 10.1's display has a hint of yellow. Comparing from my old Xoom (1), my old Xoom seems to have a brighter screen. White looks whiter/brither than XYBOARD. Settings are the same.
