Motorola Wi-Fi Xoom officially announced for U.S. – Will be in stores on March 27

It has been rumored for a while and now it is official. Motorola has announced the 32gb Wi-Fi only XOOM tablet for the United States. It will be available on March 27 at Best Buy, Amazon, Costco, Radio Shack, Staples, Walmart, and select Sam’s Clubs. The price will be $599. The $599 price was originally leaked from a  Staples Ad. About 2 weeks ago, it was also leaked that Sam’s Club will carry it for $539. It will be interesting to see if that price holds.

The $599 price matches with the 32gb version of the Wi-Fi only Ipad 2. I would still like to have seen it cheaper, but at least it is in the ball park. The XOOM does have a better screen and the SD card slot for expandability when it gets enabled.

    Is SD Card feature enabled while shipping out? Can price go below $500? Really want to get one to experience the power of Android.
