EXCLUSIVE: Best Buy to launch the Motorola XOOM on February 24, priced at $799
Only a few hours ago Sanjay Jha, CEO of Motorola Mobility, stepped forward and said that the Motorola XOOM tablet is to have a $799 price tag, thus denying some ugly rumours it's to cost more than a thousand bucks.

And now a reliable tipster has informed us that Best Buy is to launch the tablet with the above-mentioned price on February 24, while presales will start on Sunday, February 20.

If you are among the first five people to order the Motorola XOOM, a $50 deposit will reserve you one, which is kind of important since each store will be allocated only 5 units at launch, although you don't have to worry too much about that, as more units will be ready to ship at any time.

Also various accessories for the Motorola XOOM, among them docks, Bluetooth keyboard and cases will be on board.

Now that all the details are here, it's time to ask you - is this a fair price for the Motorola XOOM and are you getting one?

Hundreds of thanks for our anonymous tipster!

you know its sad that phonearenas tipsters act like they have info they no one else does. The Xoom will be launching @ Verizon. Therefore, best buy will have it also. Only presenting part of the info is why everyone thinks the thunderblot was delayed due to the iphone. When in fact the only tip was that best buy would launch the thunderbolt on the 14th then retracted because it wasnt true. Never once did it come from Verizon when the actual launch date was. If anyone thinks best buy would have a major product launch before Verizon has it, well they're just stupid.

4. Get it at costco (unregistered)

Again get it at Costco... it will be cheaper than anywhere else just like the atrix is $119.00 The xoom will be less than anyone else.. :) and it will be in stock on launch day!!
