The article will educate a user on Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1. Let’s have a look at the design of Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1.
The Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 isn’t overtly big, coming in at 6.8”H x 9.9”W x 0.34”D, but does feel a bit heavy at 1.3 lbs. The device appears well built, almost like a tank, using premium materials, which gives it a nice sturdy feel. It has angled corners, just like the DROID RAZR smartphone. The 10.1” IPS-enhanced HD Display carries the same 1280×800 resolution as its 8.2” brother.
On the right back-edge is the power/lock button and volume rocker. They can be a bit difficult to locate at times, since it has the same soft-touch coating on it and doesn’t protrude any. Along the bottom edge is the 4G SIM card slot and the microUSB and microHDMI ports, and up on top is the 3.5mm headset jack and IR blaster, which can be used with the Dijit app to turn the tablet into an universal remote control. Above the display is a 1.3MP camera, and on the rear is a 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash that can also record HD videos. On either side of it is a pair of stereo speakers that does remarkably well with music playback.
Functionality and Internet:
The Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 comes with the standard Android 3.2 Honeycomb user experience, which offers plenty of personalization with its variety of icons, wallpapers, and widgets, but it doesn’t particularly bring any new to the table from what can be found with other Honeycomb tablets.
Entering text on the 10.1” screen with the virtual QWERTY keyboard is easier than on the 8.2” model, as the keys are larger in size, allowing for a more natural typing experience. A user has also got a choice of using the stock keyboard, Swype, and Swift Tablet X keyboard. There is also a new MyScript Stylus input that shows a white square on the screen that a user can use the included stylus pen to draw the letters on, which is then converted to text.
The GMail and standard email app are appropriately laid out to take advantage of the spacious screen available with the tablet – so organizing emails is a pleasure to handle. Moreover, setup is a breeze seeing it simply requires users email address and password for automatic completion, though a user can do it manually for POP and IMAP accounts.
The 5MP autofocus camera on the DROID XYBOARD 10.1 is the same one that is found on the DROID XYBOARD 8.2. A user can also record videos at 1280x720p resolution at 30 frames-per-second. Again, colours are a bit drab and the video isn’t as sharp and clear as a user would have preferred, but again it’s reasonable for on-the-go recording.
