Motorola XOOM, the 10.1-inch tablet PC that the handset vendor made official last week during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, has been already listed on a UK retailers' website, with a price tag of £659.99 attached to it.No specific release date for the tablet PC was unveiled for the time being, but those interested in it can register on Handtec's website to be notified on the availability of the device.
One thing that is certain here is that the cost of Motorola XOOM seems to be a pretty high one, at over $1,000, or around €800, though the specifications list of this tablet PC should make it worth every penny.
As the guys over at Android and Me note in a recent article, the price tag for this device is in line with the initial cost of Samsung's Galaxy Tab, which ended up at a lower price tag when launched on the US market.
The new tablet PC comes to the market with Google's Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system on board, complementing it with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display, with support for HD videos. Motorola XOOM sports HDMI output so that one would be able to view content from it on larger HD screens.
The new device also comes with great web browsing capabilities with support for Adobe Flash Player, as well as with Google Maps 5.0 with 3D interaction, and support for applications available for download from the Android Market.
The specifications list of Motorola XOOM also includes Wi-Fi and 3G/4G LTE connectivity options, with support for video chats courtesy of that 2-megapixel camera on the front.
Not to mention that it comes with built-in gyroscope, barometer, e-compass, accelerometer and adaptive lighting so that users would be able to enjoy new types of applications on it.
The Motorola XOOM does not have a specific release date attached to it as of yet, though it might not be too long before Motorola announces officially these details, so stay tuned for more. UK users can see the device listed at Handtec here
