Moto confirms April plans, but still no pricing

Moto has told Engadget that the Xoom will be up for grabs at Dixons, Currys and PC World, as well as Carphone Warehouse, with a Wi-Fi and 3G model both available.

Although there have been a string of leaks regarding price, there’s still no official price for the iPad-botherer. It’s believed a Wi-Fi-only 32GB version will costs £500, £20 pricier than the equivalent 32GB iPad. The 3G edition will come in at around £600.

Has Motorola left it too late to compete with the iPad 2 in the UK? Or will this Android Honeycomb tablet do the business? Tell us what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
