Looks like the Xyboard family is due for an update as Verizon just announced a maintenance update for the pair to improve the overall functionality of the device as well as support for a few additional tidbits. The Xyboard 8.2 is receiving the 1.6.0M_279-MZ609 update and the 10.1-inch device is receiving 1.6.0M_279-MZ617. Both updates seem to be identical at first glance however, the Xyboard 10.1 is adding better support for the “Touch Response that includes Stylus enhancements.” Pretty sweet if you ask me. Maybe this will influence some of you non-converters to run out and finally grab the alternative input method now ($40). If you’re ready to improve your device, hit the source links below respectively to get your update. Don’t forget to report back with any issues if you have ‘em.
