Motorola Xoom UK, Germany Price: Cheaper Than iPad

By Updated on

There has been much speculation over the Motorola Xoom price for UK and Germany, so we are pleased to be able to offer you the official price for both countries. Before we go in to detail, we thought you would be interested to know that it is much cheaper than the current iPad.

We were so lucky to have been looking on the PC World UK website today, as we have found a little gem. The price of the Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi only model will be just £450, that’s £60 cheaper than the 32GB iPad alternative. However, we do have to remember that Apple is to hold their iPad 2 media event tomorrow, and there are some suggestions that a price drop could be announced for their current tablet device.

We do not know for certain when the Xoom will release in the UK, there had been suggestions of April, but we now expect it to be some time this month. PC World UK is now offering this up for pre-order, but as yet the button is not working. No matter how many times we try it just takes us to the top of the page.

Those of you living in Germany and have been waiting on pricing for the Motorola Xoom, then Android Community has learned that the price will be €699.95. Do not be put off by this price, as this is the Wi-Fi and 3G model. Looking at the price of the iPad equivalent, it works out to just €1 more. Currently there is no way to pre-order the new Honeycomb tablet on T-Mobile German website.

Are you happy with the pricing, did you think it was going to be cheaper or more expensive?
