Verizon Wireless Announces Two New 4G LTE Android Tablets

As predicted earlier, Verizon Wireless recently declared that a new pair of new 4G LTE Android tablets will be released this December.

To be named "Droid Xyboard," these devices will succeed the Motorola Xoom, launched at the beginning of the year.

The new devices are powered by 1.2Ghz processors along with 1GB RAM.

Features include two cameras; the main camera is 5 megapixels and the front-facing camera is of 1.3 megapixels. At present, both devices will run on Google's Android 3.2 Honeycomb. Verizon Wireless, however, has claimed the devices will get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich sometime soon in future, as reported by CNET.

The 8.2-inch model with16GB is available for $429.99; the 32GB for $529.99. The 10.1-inch model is available with 16GB for $529.99; 32GB for $629.99 and 64GB for $729.99.This is a nice variety for those who may not know exactly what they want.

Even though the devices seem to cost less initially, there are a few hidden costs which ultimately make the 64GB model cost around $1,449 during the contract period. This is why it is important to fully understand all costs before investing in a phone with contract because no one wants to be surprised when the bill arrives.
