Commission docs corroborate recent leaks
Corroborating recent leaks, Motorola's Droid 4 and Xoom 2 Media Edition appear to have arrived at the FCC for approval. The Commission's documents point to an unannounced handset, presumably the Droid 4, that was tested in "slider open" and "slider closed" configurations. The device also provides dual-mode roaming functionality, with support for Verizon's LTE and CDMA networks alongside GSM, EDGE and WCDMA.
Most Likely rebranded Xoom 2 Media Edition
Motorola has submitted a new LTE-enabled tablet to the FCC for approval. The device supports CDMA/EDVO and the LTE band used by Verizon. This gives rise to speculation that this is the Xoom 2 Media Edition which the carrier will be selling in the US as the 8.2-inch version of the Droid Xyboard.
Droid Xyboard cases, docks arrive at Verizon
The Droid XYBoard tablet, also known as the Xoom 2, is expected to arrive at Verizon next week, and it appears accessories for the tablet have already began showing up in stores. Droid-Life found evidence of the accessories at Verizon stores. They include a three-pack of screen protectors, an HD dock and HD station (likely one each for each different sized tablets), and a protective portfolio.
Unique branding limited to US carrier
Following a number of credible leaks, Verizon has finally confirmed that it will launch Motorola's Xoom 2 tablets sometime in December. The carrier also admitted that it will split from the traditional naming scheme, referring to the devices as the "Droid Xyboards" to add the Droid badge that adorns several other high-end smartphones in the company's inventory.
Both sizes slated for early December
Verizon is reportedly readying Motorola's second-generation Xoom tablets to launch on December 8. A leaked document is claimed to show minimum advertised pricing (MAP) and availability dates for the 8.2- and 10.1-inch models. The smaller tablet with 16GB of storage appears to cost $430 with a new contract, while the larger model starts at $530.
Android tablets to get Droid branding
Verizon is reportedly preparing to rebrand Motorola's second-generation Android tablets, which will allegedly be sold under the name "Droid Xyboard" rather than the Xoom 2. Although many companies use code-names to refer to some products that are still in the development stage, the carrier has applied to trademark the term Xyboard.
