Motorola’s 3G enabled Xoom tablet will retails for $799 at Verizon Wireless stores when it goes on sale later this year.  However, if you’re feeling the pinch you can opt for a WiFi only version for $600.  This isn’t to say a subsidized version won’t be available.  

If you recall the Xoom is a 10.1-inch tablet powered by a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and runs the latest version of Android, Honey Comb.  Initially it will only support 3G connectivity, but we’re hearing an update will enable it to 4G.  Other specs include Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 10 hour battery life and 32GB of storage.

Is this price point competitive?  Only time will tell.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
