Best Buy circular confirms Motorola Xoom launch for February 24 at $799

Whatever your thoughts are on the Super Bowl ad the Motorola Xoom is a fantastic piece of hardware and will be the first taste of Honeycomb available to the Android faithful.

Rumors on the pricing and launch date for the Xoom have been circulating for a few weeks now and this latest ad from Best Buy finally seems to cement it at February 24th for $799. Just as with the Verizon Galaxy Tab at Best Buy you will need to activate at least one month of service in order to take home the Xoom.

The available monthly plans are as follows:

  • 1 GB for $20
  • 3 GB for $35
  • 5 GB for $50
  • 10 GB for $80

Notably those prices say that they are “3G Rate Plans” so whether that breakdown will look the same once the 4G upgrade happens remains to be seen.

The full page for the Xoom is also now live on Motorola’s site if you want to take a good hard look at what your $800 is going to get you.

I’m glad to see the Xoom will be arriving soon, but that price is going to be a tough pill to swallow for potential buyers.
