Motorola Xoom heading to UK

The big launches are all well and good, but what we really want is the details of how we can buy these new mobile devices. Thankfully, some details of one of those recent launches, the Motorola Xoom, are now available.

According to Pocket Lint, the headline act of Android Honeycomb (3.0) tablets will land in the UK in 'Q2 2011' in both 3G and Wi-Fi flavours. That means spring/summer in real words. Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy will be offering up the 3G and Wi-Fi option (plus data contracts if necessary) whilst Currys and PC World will be stocking the Wi-Fi only model.

'2011 will be the year of the tablet,' said Graham Stapleton, chief commercial officer at The Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy. 'Demand for tablets has already been greater than expected and the next 12 months will see them being adopted by more and more people as new products are unveiled. The Motorola Xoom sets the bar incredibly high - its functionality and ground-breaking features mean it offers one of the richest user experiences I’ve ever seen.'

As yet, pricing hasn't been announced, apparently because Motorola has yet to confirm the pricing to the retailers. However, word at the recent MWC event was something in the region of £600 - £700 for a top-end model. So certainly not cheap. More on this when it's confirmed. In the meantime, get the lowdown on the device here.
