Cracking Open the Motorola Xyboard 10.1: Box
The Motorola Xyboard 10.1 is available through Verizon for $529 (16GB), $629 (32GB), and $729 (64GB), with a two-year contract for a 4G data plan. Monthly plans start at $30 for 2GB of data.
You can purchase the Xyboard without a data plan, but doing so raises the price by $170. Our 16GB Xyboard 10.1 test unit cost $699 (plus tax).
