Motorola's Xoom Tablet Coming Next Month
Motorola's CEO Sanjay Jha announced on the company's earnings call that the 3G version for Verizon of Xoom will arrive at "the end of February." In addition, a LTE Xoom will arrive at "the end of the second quarter" as previously promised. This is great if they deliver on their promise. This seems to confirm a Best Buy rumor that the Xoom will launch on February 17th. Apparently, the selling price will be $700 which is honestly too expensive. In order for any tablet to have successful sales, it needs to stay below $500. Although the Xoom will sport Android Honeycomb and Tegra 2 dual-processors, it may not do well at $700.
