Well, if you happen to be in the UK and waiting patiently for the arrival of the highly anticipated Android 3.0 Honeycomb powered Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi, then you’ll be surprised to see its pricing lowered even before it’s even released. Dixons in the UK has yet to commence selling the tablet, but they’ve gone ahead to drop the XOOM Wi-Fi to £479.99 ($779) – which is moderately better than the £599.99 that Carphone Warehouse is showing for its 3G/Wi-Fi version.
In terms of actual availability, Dixons is planning to ship the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi some time this week – which is great seeing the wait isn’t long at all. As for the US, it’ll be interesting to see how much and how fast retailers are willing to go down the road when it comes to reducing its price. Until then, you can still count on coughing up $599 for it.
