Verizon confirms Motorola Xoom launch date, pricing: 24 February, $599.99 on contract
Verizon has just confirmed the launch date and price of its Motorola Xoom, the world’s first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet.
As expected, the Xoom will be available starting February 24 (this Thursday).
Verizon will sell the Xoom both without a contract, for $799.99, and with contract, for $599.99 (requires a new 2-yr agreement and a data plan of at least $20 per month – 1GB of data is included).
For the moment, the Moto Xoom doesn’t support Verizon’s LTE network. However, the 10 inch tablet “will be upgradeable to 4G LTE service at no additional charge in the second quarter of 2011.”
The Xoom will also be released in Europe (the UK included), but only starting the second quarter of the year. T-Mobile will be among the carriers to offer it to European customers.
