If the $800 Motorola XOOM from Verizon sounds a bit steep, you might want to reconsider what you really need. If you really don’t want a 3G/4G equipped Android tablet or don’t want to pay for an extra data plan, you might be interested in knowing that Sam’s Club may have plans to offer the WiFi-only version of the Motorola XOOM for a mere $539.
For anyone wondering how the price compares to the new iPad 2, its $60 cheaper than the 32 GB model. We still have no clue as to when Motorola plans on rolling out the WiFi-only Motorola XOOM, but since a handful of European e-tailors are claiming an early April release we don’t see any reason why the U.S. launch would be any later.
From what we can tell, most people’s main complaint about the XOOM and most other Android tablets has been the price. If Motorola does manage to bring the WiFi only tablet to market for less than $550, would any of you non-tablet enthusiast reconsider your position?
