The Motorola Xoom tablet computer impressed a few attendees at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, but soon afterwards those impressions were tempered upon rumours of the pricing. The rumour was that the Xoom would cost US$800.
It’s not a rumour now. The Motorola Xoom will go on sale in the USA on February 24, and can be pre-ordered for – yes – US$800.
It may well be a sweet looking, powerful little device (see the video overview below), but at that price it won’t have the Apple execs looking over their shoulder.
The Australian price and release date? Nothing has been announced yet.
