Motorola Xoom release prices officially unveiled in US

Motorola to launch Xoom with iPad-competitive pricing

Motorola has officially unveiled the stateside pricing for its upcoming foray into the tablet market with the Motorola Xoom models to cost from $600 up to $799.

Looking to challenge the iPad's tablet supremacy the Xoom, which has yet to be given an official launch date, will touch down in the US with the 32GB Wi-Fi only base model costing $600 (£372), just a single buck more than its Apple-branded competitor. Unveiling the Xoom’s pricing Motorola Chief Executive Sanjay Jha also announced the 4G capable model will set wannabe owners back $799 (£496).

Believed to be heading for a March release, the Xoom will touch down sporting a 10.1-inch touchscreen display with a 1280 x 800p resolution, 5-megapixel rear-mounted camera with 720p HD video recording credentials and a second 2-megapixel front-facing snapper to allow for video calls.

Set to be the first tablet to launch equipped with Google’s upcoming tablet-centric Android 3.0 operating system, Honeycomb, the Xoom will also feature a 1GHz dual-core processor and a HDMI connection port. UK pricing and release information for the Motorola tablet has yet to be announced.
