Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Cost $100 more than the iPad 2 starter unit

We already know that the Motorola Xoom packing mobile broadband is coming to the US. Motorola has now confirmed that the less expensive WiFi only version of the Xoom will be coming stateside as well. The WiFi only tablet will be offered in all sorts of places including Sam's Club, Staples, Walmart, and online at Amazon.com and other places. The MSRP for the 32GB WiFi only tablet is $599.

“MOTOROLA XOOM is a truly innovative tablet – its design, coupled with being the first tablet to have Android 3.0, results in a user experience that is one-of-a-kind,” said Dan Papalia, vice president of retail sales for Motorola Mobility. “We are now continuing to expand the choices available to consumers with the MOTOROLA XOOM Wi-Fi to be available soon from numerous leading retailers in the United States.”

I think that Motorola is doing itself quite a disservice with that price tag. $599 puts the WiFi only Xoom at $100 more than the entry-level iPad 2 and I know lots of geeks would rather roll with the iPad. Hopefully the locations that retail the Xoom will charge less than MSRP for the device.

The Xoom has a 10.1-inch screen and a 1GHz dual-core processor. It offers 1GB of RAM and supports all sorts of Google services like maps and more. The device runs Android 3.0 as the OS, runs flash, and supports apps from the Android Market.
