Motorola Xoom, the world’s first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet, is finally available for purchase – albeit only in the US, and only on Verizon Wireless.
As you probably already know, Verizon sells the Xoom for $599 on contract, or $799 without contract.
The new 10 inch tablet currently supports only Verizon’s 3G network, but an upgrade to LTE will be rolled-out later this year. Another feature that’s missing form the Xoom at the moment is Adobe Flash 10.1 – this will “be available as a free download from Android Market soon.”
You can buy the Moto Xoom online via Verizon.
In case you don’t want to pay for the new tablet, Motorola lets you win two Gold Edition Xooms – more details here.
I’m looking forward to seeing how many Xooms Verizon will sell – let’s hope we’ll have some official details on this in the next few months.
