Verizon just casually announced that it'll be launching two "Xyboard Droid" tablets from Motorola later this month — the mention is tucked into a press release noting the one-year anniversary of the carrier's 4G LTE network. We're assuming these are the LTE variants of the 10-inch Xoom 2 and 8-inch Xoom 2 Media Edition Verizon showed to CNET last week, but it's particularly strange that Motorola hasn't yet said one word about these particular devices; Motorola and Verizon are typically in lockstep on product launches. It's also strange that the PR calls them "Xyboard Droid" devices, when every previous leak and mention has used the "Droid Xyboard" name. You know what would clear all this up? A proper product launch.

P.S. The PR also mentions the "anxiously awaited" Galaxy Nexus will be coming... soon. Thanks, Verizon.
