For those of you who have been holding off on purchasing the Motorola XOOM because of the $799 price tag, your wait is almost over. The XOOM WiFi model will set you back just $599, which is now in the exact same ballpark as the iPad 2 WiFi with an equal 32 GB of storage. If you want to guarantee yourself a WiFi model you can head over to Amazon, Staples, and Costco. It will be available in stores March 27th, although Staples is sending them out a couple of days early and including a free gel case to sweeten the deal. Who is purchasing the XOOM WiFi on launch day, let us know in the comments.
Motorola didn’t say when pre-orders for the WiFi-only Xoom would be available when it finally announced the device yesterday, but some retailers have now stepped in and answered that question. You can currently pre-order the device from Amazon, Staples and Costco, with other participating retailers presumably set to follow shortly. In case you missed the news, the Xoom WiFi will run you $599 for the one and only 32GB version, and it will be available on March 27th. Staples will apparently be shipping them out on March 25th to ensure you get it on launch day (if you pre-order before March 23rd), while Costco says it will only begin shipping on April 1st — it’s throwing in a free gel case to make up for it, though.
