Sprint yesterday said it will begin selling the Motorola Xoom tablet on May 8 for $600. Motorola is billing its Xoom tablet as the first tablet device to come running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), which Google has optimized specifically for tablets.
Originally unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Motorola Xoom features a 10.1-inch widescreen HD display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera with flash that can capture HD video and a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video chatting.
The Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi will be available through all Sprint sales channels, including retail store, online and telesales.
Motorola Mobility yesterday announced that it had shipped 250,000 Xoom tablets in the five to six weeks since the devices went on sale.
Motorola also today said that it would delay upgrading the Xoom to LTE until later this summer. The upgrade was originally slated for May.
