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.
