Well Finally we get some confirmation going on!

On February 2th you can pick up a Motorola Xoom tablet for $599 with a two year contract or $799 full retail. The data plan that is available from Verizon is $20 a month for 1GB of Data, which may not sit well with heavy data users. The price point on the two year plan is not bad but we can’t say anything until we get our hands on a Xoom ourselves for a good in-depth review.  Check out the PR release below and let us know if your ready for the Xoom!

With the new growing world of mobile applications I could achieve just that. I am always looking to learn something new and provide the best service and information I can. I am really a cool and calm type of guy who is more of a lounge party setting then going to the loudest rock concert ever. When I go out to eat at fancy places the ambiance is what I comment on first, if the ambiance is poor then my food doesn’t go down as good. I look at everything around me that has different shapes and colors which creates ideas I use in my everyday projects. I try to live life to the fullest when life dishes out free time. I love to teach everyone I know who isn’t as tech literate as myself and give them more information to better their decisions. The progression in technology is life, it’s my life.
