The Motorola Xoom has been available in Canada in its Wi-Fi-only incarnation since April. Up until now, the price being asked for the first tablet to run Android Honeycomb has been a bit steep at $599.99 (but it being more expensive than the competition was pretty much in line with its pricing elsewhere).
Now, however, Motorola has decided to make the Xoom cheaper in Canada. It’s already available at Future Shop for just $499.99. So that’s a $100 price cut. Nothing extraordinary, but decent nonetheless. It also (finally) puts the Xoom in the same (price) league as the Apple iPad 2, RIM BlackBerry PlayBook, and the upcoming HP TouchPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
So if you’re in Canada and are interested in a tablet running Android Honeycomb, the Xoom is now definitely one model to consider. If you’re interested, go to Future Shop now and order yours.
