Motorola Xoom to Launch on February 17 at Best Buy

The Motorola Xoom is the first “Google Experience” Android tablet which will be running the latest version of the Android OS optimized for the tablet form factor – Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It is powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 platform, and will be the most powerful tablet when it is launched. It was showcased by Motorola at CES 2011 and has set the blogosphere abuzz with speculation. Almost everyone is trying to get some information on when it will be launched and what it will be priced at. We got the answer to the latter, when we discovered that it might be priced at $799 for the unsubsidized version, but we still didn’t have any idea when it will be released.

Well, now we do. Engadget has stumbled upon an internal Best Buy document which states that the Motorola Xoom Android tablet will be launched on February 17 at Best Buy. The stock of the Motorola Xoom tablet will arrive at Best Buy on February 16 and it will be on sale the very next day. We still don’t have any confirmation about the price of the Motorola Xoom yet, but we surely hope that it’s much less than the rumored $799.
