Wi-Fi-only Motorola Xoom now just £394.95 in the UK
Here’s a good offer if you’re after an Android-powered tablet in the UK. The Motorola Xoom has always been one of the more expensive devices among those that run Android Honeycomb. Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that it was the first tablet to come with that particular version of Google’s mobile operating system. Who knows. The important thing to note though is that lately its prices are going down, apparently regardless of country or even continent. Just yesterday we reported on Verizon slashing a cool $100 off the price with contract for a the 3G Xoom and $200 off its full price.
And now it’s the UK’s turn. Over there, the Wi-Fi-only Xoom launched for £499.99. However, Amazon now has it for just £394.95, plus £1.99 for shipping. That’s a great price reduction, and at this price the Xoom actually becomes pretty interesting.
So if you’ve held off purchasing a Honeycomb tablet so far, perhaps now’s the time to reconsider. If you’re interested, head on over to Amazon and get yours. But hurry, since at the time of writing there are only 4 tablets left in stock at this price.
Amazon also sells the 3G-enabled version of the tablet. If you want to buy that, it will cost you a rather steep (at least compared to the Wi-Fi-only version) £559.98. Whether or not the 3G capability is worth about £165 is up to you, of course. If you think it is, then this is the link to click.
The Motorola Xoom has a dual-core 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage space, a 5 MP autofocus rear camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a secondary front-facing 2 MP camera, a 10.1-inch 1280×800 touchscreen, microSD card support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
