Staples Ad Reveals March 27 Availability Date for WiFi Only Xoom, $599 Price Tag
While the 3G and soon to be 4G version of the Motorola Xoom is currently available through Verizon Wireless, many are still holding out for the cheaper, non-3G Motorola Xoom, which is expected to launch shortly. However, like most Android smartphones and tablets, release dates are hardly announced more than a week in advance, thus placing rumors on an elevated pedestal. According to a leaked Staples flyer, the WiFi only Motorola Xoom will be “arriving in stores March 27” and it sports a $599 price tag. A week ago, Sam’s Club had priced the WiFi only Xoom at $539, so the fact that Staples is pricing the Xoom at $599 makes sense. It is worth noting that Sam’s Club typically buys products like the Xoom in massive bulk, therefore allowing them to sell it a lower cost. Unfortunately, Motorola hasn’t confirmed the price nor the availability date of the Motorola Xoom sans 3G, but the information leaked by Staples does sound pretty legitimate.
