Verizon Droid Xyboard 10.1, 8.2 Get ‘Global Roaming’ Updates
If you have a Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 or 8.2 Android tablet on Verizon, you should prepare to see a couple of update notifications in the coming weeks. First you’ll see an update that will bring build 1.6.0M_279 and together with that, an improved browser performance, better touch response, maintaining data connection while toggling between WiFi and some more. Both tablets will get the same update, except for the “Stylus enhancements” which will only roll out to the 10.1 model.
Within two weeks from rolling out the update above, Verizon will let loose an update which will transform the two tablets into global roaming devices. This update will address the SIM card making the Xyboards capable of handling 3G speeds (where supported) while roaming in 205 countries.
