Guess what next is on the Motorola XOOM itinerary after its initial launch in the United States. Well, the first Honeycomb laced tablet is all set to embark on a journey across the pacific to be seen in the land of the rising sun towards the middle of April. Its KDDI that will act as the official carrier partner though on offer will be only the Wi-Fi only version of the XOOM, one that will be sans 3G or 4G.
The general manager of Consumer Service and Product Planning Division at KDDI, Kazuhiko Masuda is excited of the development. “We’re pleased to be introducing Motorola XOOM to Japan,” said Kazuhiko Masuda before also adding, “We are very thankful that Motorola has chosen KDDI as the partner to launch Motorola XOOM. Motorola XOOM is a very exciting product with cutting-edge technology and we are confident that the Japanese market will welcome the debut of Motorola XOOM.”
Its only a few day back that the Android 3.0 tablet had gone on sale in the US and has already been at the mercy of hackers, who have managed to get the better of it pretty soon. Motorola though isn’t revealing which other country or region will be next in line to have the XOOM. There is no word either on what the Wi-Fi only XOOM will cost in Japan though we know its going to be $600 in the US.
