Motorola Xoom Gets Priced Lower Than Apple iPad 2
One of the big rivals to the upcoming next generation Apple iPas, the Apple iPad 2 according to tech pundits is the new Motorola Xoom tablet which features the latest Android operating system out of Google, Android Honeycomb.
According to an article over on the Chicago Indie Press, Motorola expects to ship somewhere around 800, 000 Motorola Xoom tablets to Verizon stores along with a multitude of Motorola Xoom accessories.
So what price will the Motorola Xoom go for and will it undercut the upcoming Apple iPad 2? Well according to the article, Car Toys rep Brian Jones has stated…“While we won’t stock the Xoom, I have a friend at the Verizon store who has already seen the pricing. He said the basic version of the Motorola Xoom will enter between $250 and $299. I think the iPad 2 will start at $599.”
Spec wise the Motorola Xoom offers a 1GHz dual-core processor, rear 5 megapixel camera, front facing 2 mega pixel camera, 1280 x 800 display, 1080p HD video support, Adobe Flash Player, 720p video, HDMI out, and upgradeable to play nice on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
If true then the Android Honeycomb toting Motorola Xoom will indeed be priced substantially lower than the Apple iPad 2, so does this make you want to opt for the Motorola Xoom or do you really want to stick it out for the Apple iPad 2?
