Motorola Xoom Tablet: UK Release / Retailers Update

By Updated on

Although we are still none the wiser as to the exact UK price of the Motorola Xoom tablet, we do have a few more details as to which UK retailers will be selling the much awaited device and an update on when we can actually expect it to arrive.

According to a recent article by Miles J Thomas over at 3g.co.uk, Motorola has just announced that the Xoom tablet – which will run on Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) OS – will be going on sale this April, and will be available from Carphone Warehouse, Currys and PC World.

The Carphone Warehouse will be selling both the 3G and Wi-Fi versions of the Motorola Xoom, while PC World and Currys will only stock the Wi-Fi version. The Xoom has some pretty impressive specs, including a 1GHz dual core processor and a 10.1-inch HD display with a 1280 x 800 resolution.

Darren Allan over on the techwatch.co.uk website has put the 3G version of the Motorola Xoom tablet at around the £600 to £700 mark. As he noted, online retailer Handtec recently posted a price of £720, but that was soon removed and replaced by TBC instead.
