Motorola Xoom price slashed

Will UK gadget fans also be getting price cut?

Motorola has cut the price of its Xoom Wi-Fi tablet in the US, knocking $100 off of the price of the entry-level Wi-Fi model. It now costs $499, matching the most basic iPad 2.

In an official tweet, Motorola said, “Looking to save some money? Motorola XOOM with Wi-Fi now only $499. Order now.” However, there’s no news on whether the 3G version will also be coming down in price.

The drop will be seen as a bitter pill for Moto to swallow, but a necessary one seeing as the iPad 2 is taking all before it and a slew of new Android slates have hit shelves since its debut. Chatter about the release of a Xoom 2 before the end of 2011 is already rife.

Sadly, Moto has not confirmed whether this price drop will be coming across the pond to us here in Blighty. Here’s hoping.
