Motorola Xoom Tablet UK Release Date & Price

For those of you out there who like your tablet PCs, I bring some great news too you regarding the Android Honeycomb Motorola Xoom, which was unveiled at the CES 2011.

You may be interested to know that Motorola have announced that next week the Xoom tablet will be available in the UK for purchase. As indicated by the guys at Soft Sailor there is no definite date on when it will arrive, but it is believed that electronic retailer giants such as the Carphone Warehouse and Dixons will definitely stock the tablet.

Now there is speculation that the Motorola Xoom will retail for £600 for the 3G version of the tablet and possibly £500 for the WiFi-only version. However, at present, this is just rumours and the price is still yet unknown.

Well let us hope that there are no spanners in the works and that the Xoom does arrive in UK stores next week, without a hiccup.

    £500 for wifi only compared to the £400 ipad wifi only, £500 is too much, they will need to lower there price if they wish to compete, specially since the galaxy tab 10.1 is going to be around the £400 mark and run on honeycombe 3.0.

    Is this a joke. Apple do not release a product and think – heh we've got Europe next week. How much do you think we should charge? And… What about a Wednesday or Thursday? No comments. Okay, lets have the weekend and play it by ear.

    I cannot believe that a company is going to release a product into a Market without an official how much and exact date. This does not bode well for the Xoom – if Motorola cannot even decide on an official price and launch, they are doomed to fail.

    I was looking forward to the Xoom – so far I only hear Doom.

    I own an ipad and wanted an ipad 2 but they sold out eveywhere. Im glad they did because if I had managed to buy one I would have been slightly depressed right now. The camera on the ipad 2 is terrible.iPad did this deliberately, they knew peope would want the ipad 2 because it has a camera, that is its selling point. but the camera sucks, compared to xoom especially so why did they add a useless camera? so they can say the ipad 3 will have an even better camera, its how they force you to buy 3 or 4 ipads in order to get one thats actually worth the money. iPads are uselss and everyone knows that itunes sucks! Xoom has flash and runs like a normal p.c. shame on you apple for conning your customers into buying something useless compared to Xooms limitless flexibility and ipad 2 has an inferior camera, why? so you are forced to buy ipad 3 because of course, it will have a much better camera than the ipad 2, it will be the selling point of the ipad 3, watch this space but don' give apple your money, they are ripping you off and you dont even realise it!

    Seems ominous that a product does not have an official go live date. Sometime in April does not inspire me with much confidence as with the fact that the product is clearly rushed. I would have preferred to have waiting with the confidence that flash is capable and the SD card works.

    In a climate where there are tablets using the same os and same specs, and are cheaper motorola are going to have a tough time if they want to penetrate a market dominated by Apple.

    If you look everywhere the marketing machine that is Apple is fully at work – advertising is in all of the major electrical stores. Where do you see Motorola – nowhere. Get your act together, the Xoom looks like it could be an iPad killer, shame it is being backed by a useless company.
