Folks looking to get their hands on the Wi-Fi Motorola Xyboard 8.2″ and 10.1″ tablets, the wait is over. Though the device has been up for preorder for a few weeks now, the follow up to the Xoom tablet is now shipping from Motorola’s website.

Starting today, customers who order the Xyboard will be treated to free two-day shipping on their orders. The pricing for the Wi-Fi models range from $ 399.99 for the 16 GB 8.2″ model to $ 599.99 for the 32GB 10.1″ model.

Highlights of the Motorola Xyboard include:

  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb at launch
  • 8.2- or 10.1-inch IPS display with Gorilla Glass
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core OMAP4 processor
  • 5 MP rear camera
  • 1.3 MP front facing camera
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage

Frankly, unless you’re a big fan of the form factor of the Xyboard, we can’t see much of a justification for plopping down $ 400 to $ 600 on a tablet, especially when you’re putting these devices on shelves next to the Transformer Prime ($ 500 and $ 600, same as Xyboard) and upcoming 7″ Tegra 3 MeMO 370T at $ 250.

If you’ve still got your heart set on the Xyboard, you can head over to Motorola’s site to order your shiny new Android tablet. Anyone planning on picking one of these up? Which model?
