Motorola Xoom to Cost 800

first_imgYou know all of those rumors and leaked documents that set Motorola’s upcoming Xoom tablet at a lofty $799? Turns out they were true. The company confirmed the pricing this week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. That’s the price with a Verizon 3G modem. The Wi-Fi-only version will cost you a good deal less at “around” $600, according to the company’s CEO, Sanjay Jha. Motorola apparently priced the tablet the way it did to keep it competitive with the iPad. Keep in mind, after all, that a 64GB iPad 3G will run you $829 (the Wi-Fi only version is $729). The 32GB Wi-Fi version of the popular tablet is currently priced at $599.Still no word on a sale date for Motorola’s Honeycomb tablet.last_img
