After weeks of speculation and rumor, we finally have an official Motorola Xoom price. According to Reuters, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha has confirmed at Mobile World Congress that the Xoom would be priced at $799 for the 3G version on Verizon (no subsidy), and only $600 for the Wi-Fi only tablet. It's not a low as we might have hoped, but at least that $1200 Best Buy price turned out to be just a placeholder.
The $799 price for the 3G version is a little steep comparatively. The 32GB iPad with 3G is $70 less. Clearly the Xoom has some better specs, but consumers are not always lured by the checkboxes. The Wi-Fi version will actually be dead on with the cost of the corresponding iPad.
Jha did not let slip the date the dual-core tablet will be available, nor if there would be a subsidized version available from Motorola at some point. How do you feel about this price?
