Costco has the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi available for pre-order at $589.99
If you’re planning on picking up the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi when release day comes around at the end of the month, you can actually save some money on the total if you decide to place a pre-order with Costco.

From the looks of it, the discount retailer is accepting pre-orders for the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi that’s listed on their web site. Choosing to go with them, you’ll shave off a mere $10 from the price you’d originally pay for it elsewhere. So instead of paying $599.99, you’re only going to cough up $589.99 with Costco to get your hands on this venerable Honeycomb powered tablet. Furthermore, they’re also including free shipping and a gel skin case with your order.

However, the minuscule cost in savings means that you’ll need to wait a few days after its official launch date of March 27th because it’ll start shipping out on April 1st.

You mean use your phone as a hotspot for the Xoom. Yes, that's possible if your phone does that.

I see confirms with tethering and wifi hotspot. BTT however, only works with Android 2.2.1 so far.

I'm hoping the BlackBerry Playbook is like the Xoom when it comes to BTT.
