We were expecting to see the WiFi-only Xyboard make an appearance at CES this week anyway, but apparently Motorola wanted to get out ahead of the madness as they have already popped up for pre-order on the Motorola’s store.
Now for our European readers this is old hat as Motorola has offered them over there as the Xoom 2 and Xoom 2 Media Edition for a couple months now.
The half-life of any piece of modern electronics, which was once measured in years, is now barely a few months. It’s no one’s fault, of course, but it’s a reality that vendors need to integrate into their own life cycle planning lest they get caught with the product line equivalent of grandma’s wardrobe.
Simply put, the half-life of today’s uber-hot phones is shrinking. Fast.
