There have been rumor suspended around of a WiFi only Xoom making its way from side to side the FCC, but now we’ve got video of a silver Xoom from Dubai, which means it must be GSM. I am really eager that not only will the GSM Xoom make it to the U.S., but also that there will be a WiFi only option. The Xoom looks like a killer piece of hardware, but the price is at rest too high. There requirements to be options in the pricing like a WiFi only tablet. The iPad has sold very well, but I can’t envisage that the bulk of those sales be from the $729 3G/32GB model. I’m willing to bet that additional than half of the sales came from the WiFi only 16GB model at $499 or the 32GB model at $599.
That’s the syrupy spot for tablets, between $500 and $600. Let’s hope that yet if the Xoom can’t hit that target, maybe LG, HTC, Samsung, or Toshiba can.Motorola Xoom Hands On from Tbreak Media on Vimeo.
