Motorola Xyboard 150x150 Motorola Xyboard Review Motorola released the newest update to their tablet line with the new Xyboard (unofficially the Xoom 2).? With the recent underwhelming release of the newest iPad, it’s curious if this tablet could finally catch up and overcome the barriers that separate the Android vs. iOS tablet offering.

It has a large screen, comes with a great battery life, supports 4G LTE Internet speeds and looks gorgeous…ingredients for success, but is it enough to warrant my vote over the newest iPad?? Let’s find out:

smartphones 150x150 Time for Family Data PlansFirst it was minutes, then it was texting and now it will be data.? Shared family plans for data are just around the corner from the major wireless providers and it’s about time!

I have 5 phones on my family plan, 4 are smart phones.? I was ‘lucky‘ enough to get all of them on the unlimited data plan for $30 bucks a month before that plan was nixed, but when closely examining the usage, I find that barely any of them exceed 2 gigs a month!? Today, WiFi availability is so mainstream that there is a limited call for unbounded data usage, and I could save a bundle on a family shared plan.

ipad youtube 20100127 150x150 iPad HD is iBoringThe new iPad HD was released this afternoon by Apple and I am not on board with the bandwagon that seems to be marveled by the newest Cupertino based offering.

The iPad boasts a new higher resolution, a faster processor and…well, that’s mainly about it.? The name hasn’t even been confirmed! Is it the iPad3, the iPad HD? It should be called the iPad2s, but Apple just has it as the ‘iPad’ on their website.? If I call into Apple support, do I get support for the newest generation of iPad even if I have the original iPad?

In the face of its first major news event in the post-Jobs era, the announcement of the iPhone 4S, Apple fell flat. Why? Mostly because the tech blogging culture that has grown up with the resurgence of Apple expected an iPhone 5. Traditional media fell flat too. Truth be told, many expected the iPhone 5 four months ago at WWDC.

Maybe Apple simply plans to have a 24 month release schedule for the iPhone? It does fit nicely with the 2-year agreement required by most carriers. Consider the timeline. The original iPhone was released in June 2007. Then the 3G was released about a year later, July 2008. Early iPhone adopters couldn?t upgrade to the 3G as they were still under a 24 month contract. Not a good experience for Apple customers, or more importantly mobile network operators, which have to heavily?subsidize?it for hundreds of dollars. Which for all of Apple?s successes, and and control of the supply chain, it is not mobile network operator. The next release, a year later in June 2009, the 3GS was a refresh and much more contract friendly. The all new iPhone 4 was released two years after the iPhone 3G, in June 2010. Leaving earlier adopters of the iPhone 3G at the end of their contract, and again in a much better position to upgrade. An iPhone 5 release in June 2012 would fit nicely with iPhone 4 users upgrading when their contracts expire.
