Motorola Xoom Pricing Rumor Days Are Over

Posted on Feb 16 2011 - 1:22pm by Kyle

We’ve heard all kinds of rumors about the Motorola Xoom and it’s pricing plans.  The latest before hearing the official word was that the Motorola Xoom would be on sale at Best Buy for $1200, we skipped that story as it was outlandish.

Today Motorola has revealed the actual pricing. The 32gb 3G model will be $800. The 3G model is upgradeable to 4G/LTE later in the year by sending it into Verizon. There will be a wifi only version available for $600 later in the year as well.

Motorola did reveal that this was subsidized pricing for the 3G model. No plans have been announced but perhaps Verizon had a contract plan available that would knock another $200-$400 off the price of the 3G Xoom.

UPDATE: We heard from Motorola that the wi-fi tablet should hit US soil in the next 2-3 months.

    Where did you hear that the WiFi-only Xoom will be available “later in the year”? There’s nothing in the Reuters article that you sourced that suggests it will launch later than the 3G version.
