Verizon has announced that it will offer Motorola’s two latest tablets. While Motorola calls them the XOOM 2 and XOOM 2 Media Edition, Verizon is calling the tablets DROID XYBOARD tablets.

The DROID XYBOARD tablets will be available with 10.1 inch or 8.2 inch displays. Both models will feature 1.2 Ghz dual core processors, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB or more of storage. They’ll both be able to connect to Verizon’s 4G LTE network and you can enable a mobile hotspot feature to share your data connection with up to 8 WiFi capable devices.

The tablets have 5MP rear-facing cameras and 1.3MP front cameras, and 802.11ab/g/n WiFi.

The 10.1 inch model will have a starting price of $530 for a 16GB model, while the 8.2 inch tablet will start at $430. Those prices include a 2-year service contract. You can shave $100 off the price if you also buy a Motorola DROI DRAZR smartphone at the same time.

Verizon says the tablets will ship with Google Android 3.2 software, but an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update will be made available.
