Motorola Xoom Priced at $800; Launching on February 24

The Motorola Xoom has been one of the most talked about Android tablets since the end of 2010. It is the first Android tablet which will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the tablet version of Android. It will be the first serious competitor to the iPad, which is outdated now. Until the launch of the iPad 2, the Motorola Xoom will probably be the best tablet you can buy.

Today, the pricing details of the Motorola Xoom have been revealed, thanks to a leaked Best Buy ad. Just as we predicted earlier, it has been priced at $799.99 which is a bit high, but is comparable to the 3G iPad (32 GB) which is priced at $729. It will be available on Verizon with data plans starting at $20 per month for 1 GB data transfer to $80 per month for 10 GB data transfer.

Until the iPad 2 is launched, the Motorola Xoom will definitely be the best tablet around. However, I would rather wait till the iPad 2 launches, or till more Honeycomb tablets launch; the Xoom pricing should become more sensible then.

The Motorola Xoom is an Android 3.0 tablet which has a 10.1 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It also has a 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB RAM and comes with a 5 MP camera. It also has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity and has 32 GB internal storage.
