Cellular South gets Motorola Xoom too, Wi-Fi-only but bundled with MiFi and cheap monthly data
Cellular South has announced earlier today that it too will be selling the Motorola Xoom, the first tablet to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The carrier has a preview page up, however it’s still unclear when exactly the Xoom will be available to buy from Cellular South.
Other details are known, though. The Xoom will come bundled with a MiFi portable wireless hotspot, which probably means that the Xoom tablet that Cellular South will sell will be Wi-Fi-only (otherwise the MiFi would be kind of redundant). The carrier has also prepared some nifty prices for data plans to power that mobile hotspot. The starter option is 3 GB of traffic for $19.99 per month, and presumably there will also be a 5 GB alternative for $59.99.
Cellular South will ask for $599.99 for the tablet upfront, and if you want the MiFi, you’ll need to sign a new two-year contract. Keep an eye on Cellular South’s Xoom page to find out when it’s finally in shops.
