Just one step closer in actually getting the highly prized tablet, pre-orders just went live in the UK through Carphone Warehouse for the version of the Motorola XOOM with 3G and Wi-Fi built in. In fact, this SIM-free version will soon be upon UK consumers, but you’ll have to shell out a staggering £599.99 ($970) for it. Nevertheless, Carphone Warehouse is making it very enticing indeed since they’re including a free charging dock with your pre-order.
Although the flood gates are now open for pre-orders, don’t expect to see them to actually come in stock until early April at the earliest. Still, it’s better to be safe in getting a pre-order now, than sorry later if supply somehow turns out to be on the low side.
