Germany and Japan will see the Motorola XOOM arrive by late April
While Verizon customers feast into the night with the Honeycomb driven Motorola XOOM tablet, other parts of the world are eagerly awaiting its arrival on their shores.

Well, word has it that the Android 3.0 tablet will be making its way to both Germany and Japan some time in late April – which is still some time away in the distance. Nevertheless, it should give potential owners enough time in saving up the much needed money in purchasing the device.

From the looks of it, Deutsche Telekom will be selling the Motorola XOOM in Germany – plus, they will have an exclusive hold on the device for the first three months it’s on sale in the country. Definitely a nice catch for them, but if you prefer siding with another local carrier, you’ll probably have to wait until as late as mid-summer before this one rolls along to the competition. Although pricing is unknown, this version of the Motorola XOOM will offer UMTS/HSPA+ connectivity.

Conversely, Japanese carrier KDDI will also sell the XOOM at approximately the same time, however, it’s only going to have Wi-Fi connectivity only. Pricing is also unknown at the present, but we’re guessing that people will want to see it priced accordingly since it’s going to lack any cellular connections.
