Motorola has now officially announced the XOOM Wi-Fi tablet will be making it to the retail space on March 27. B&H has already been taking pre-orders for the Wi-Fi only XOOM with deliveries slated to begin from March 27th. Now other retailers have also joined the scene with Amazon, Staples, and Costco currently accepting pre-orders for the tablet.
The price has been fixed at $599.99 for the Wi-Fi XOOM which will be available in the 32 GB storage option. Staples though will be shipping the tablet on March 25th, which will ensure you have the tablet in your hands on the launch day itself. For this, pre-orders will have to be placed before the 23rd of March. Amazon, on the other hand, isn’t mentioning any shipping date while Costco has said they will start shipping from April 1st. Costco is making that up with a slightly reduced price of $589.99 as well as a gel case which comes free.
So, if you have been holding off your purchase of the XOOM, you have plenty of options ahead of you.
