So the XOOM 2 is coming soon, and Motorola is looking to differentiate themselves from other Android-powered tablets out there. While the design itself may be enough for some folks, the software that comes installed on the tablet is usually the more important part. And when it comes to keyboards, they are generally all the same. Skins can change things around, but a skin is only so much.
That’s why Motorola seems to have chosen to pre-install SwiftKey Tablet X on the newest tablet to the Motorola franchise. As you can see from the image above, SwiftKey X and SwiftKey Tablet X is a unique way to use a software keyboard on a tablet device, at least when it comes to an Android-based device. The split keyboard will make it easier for people to use the keyboard while it’s in landscape mode, which means you won’t have to put it down all the time to type.
If you’ve ever used SwiftKey X for your phone, then you know it’s a good software keyboard. It should make a great addition to the XOOM 2, but does anyone consider it a selling point?
