When we got our hands on the Motorola Xoom at CES we never expected it to be launching this soon, mainly because the device in Vegas only had a video loop running. It seems that they have refined the device and determined that one of the first vendors to sell this device is retail giant Best Buy.
The Motorola Xoom will be available at Best Buy locations starting February 17th 2011 for around $800, which is $200 more then the Samsung Galaxy Tab when it first launched. It does run the latest iteration of Google Android 3.0 and will be the first tablet to be officially running it, but does this justify the mighty price point?
