Confirmed. Xoom to appear at all retailers for $599

Quote:
Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. (MMI) on Wednesday said it is launching a wireless local area network-only version of its Xoom tablet in U.S. retail outlets on March 27.

Motorola said in a statement the Xoom WiFi will cost $599 with 32GB of memory--on par with a wifi-only version of Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) iPad with the same configuration.
Is there one with less memory for the lower price?

no - motorola is apparently only making them in 32GB. Samsungs 10.1 will have a 16 GB version but doesnt have the HDMI out port but it has a better rear camera.... IF the Sammy comes with some kind of dock to get the HD out Ill probably buy the Sammy.

But Im also very interested in the HP Touchpad so Ill be waiting until June either way.

Nope, just one model at this point the 3g/4g is just an internal plugin card.

I'm currently very happy with my hacked nook running CM7. It's really an awesome tablet and now on par with the Samsung Tab 7", (well the Samsung has a few extras like gorilla glass and a better video card). But for everything else they are pretty much on par

The model I'm looking at is the LG Optimus (GTab in the states). The architecture is very nice and has an arch. that is suppose to take full advantage of the dual core.

Here is a video of it.

The Xoom is a pretty cool device. Honeycomb has the potential to be fantastic, but it's somewhat lacking at the moment.

For the money, I'll stick with the Nook Color and have it rooted. That's all I need in a tablet for the time being.

ahem


I like the LG even though im not a fan of 3d stuff. Im concerned the price is going to be the same or more than the Xoom. If I was looking for 3d features that price might be tempting but since Im not ...

edit possible leaked pricing http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/18/m...-asus-eee-pad/

Costco has the wifi Xoom advertised on their website for $589 (only $10 less) with shipping starting April 1. (April Fools's Day joke? Probably not.)
