Motorola and Verizon's DROID Xyboard tablet came at an awkward time with an awkward price tag. The Android device shipped after the first wave of tablets that descended on stores in the first half of 2011, but didn't fit in with the renewed expectations (and much lower price range) of recent contenders like the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet. At $529 for the 10-inch model and $429 for the 8-incher, and with no groundbreaking new features to make it standout, the Xyboard was considered a tough sell.

To help entice consumers a bit more, Verizon has cut the price of both versions of the tablet by $50 when you buy on contract. The 10 inch Xyboard will now go for $479, while the 8-inch model will sell for $379. If you're interested, scoop one up at your local Verizon store.
