Motorola Xoom Ratified: Release Date, BB Ad and Price

By Daniel Chubb - Feb 20, 2011

Its been a few months now since we first heard about the Motorola ‘Xoom’ trademark being registered, and early predictions of the device being a tablet turned out to be true, and now we’re days away from the Motorola Xoom release date.

The Motorola Xoom specs are pretty impressive, and for those that do not know, here is a quick reminder. The XOOM includes Adobe Flash Player support, an option to use the tablet as a full HD camcorder, rear and front cameras, a dual-core processor for extra performance, a nice sized (10-inch) high definition widescreen display, and of course Android 3.0 OS.

Best Buy has confirmed the Motorola Xoom price to be $799.99, and today you can pre-order the tablet via this page on Best Buy. The same page also features Xoom accessories, which include a Bluetooth wireless keyboard, HD speaker dock, and a pretty smart portfolio case.

Those that prefer to pick up products in Best Buy stores will be glad to know that the Motorola Xoom will be available from February 24. You can see the latest Best Buy ad over on Droid Life.

    According to Verizon and a sales person in store in one of the Baltimore locations, the Xoom release is being delayed and will not be available 2/24. In fact, a call to verizon will confirm they do not even have pricing for the 3G service for the device yet.

    Actually, you CANNOT order the XOOM from the page linked in the article. According to information on that page, you must go into a Best Buy store to pre-order.
