Bright light!

A glimpse at the Xyboard 8.2's screen; one of the brightest we've ever seen...on a tablet. I'm good at ruining rhymes.

Screw heads

The aluminum plate reinforces the tablet's body, but with screw heads looking you right in the face, the implementation feels shoddy.

Ports

From left to right: Micro-USB, Micro-HDMI, and a SIM card slot to power the fast 4G LTE connection.

I get it but...

I get why Motorola took the power/lock button and volume rocker off the edge (less accidental pressing), but placing it on back isn't the solution. Making them this flush with the tablet's body was an even worse decision.

Like and dislikes

I don't like the placement of the 5-megapixel camera; however, I do like the inclusion of an infrared sensor. I don't like that its range is so limited, though.

Front dislike

I don't like the placement of the 2-megapixel front camera, either.
