So far, we do know that the Motorola Xyboard will be making its way to the masses over at Verizon Wireless, since previous appearances on the FCC did showcase such. Not only that, FCC tests also reportedly pointed out that Xyboard tablets will see their GSM/EDGE/WCDMA network capabilities disabled by firmware, and will end up as SIM-locked for all US operators, making it seem as though Verizon Wireless has exclusive access to the Xyboard. I guess things have changed now, as a new version of the Xyboard that sports the FCC ID IHDP56MF2 has already appeared, and it will support both GSM 850 and 1900 bands, in addition to WCDMA bands II and V.

To put it in a nutshell, the IHDP56MF2 will support AT&T’s 2G and 3G networks for those living Stateside, without any mention of AT&T’s LTE network support being displayed in the FCC filings. Just for your information, the IHDP56MF2 will be the 10.1″ model of the Xyboard, and while a GSM version of the Xyboard in its 7″ glory has yet to appear over at the FCC, we suspect that patience will eventually see this elusive creature rear its head.
