Simply electronics, a web based technology store has put the Motorola Xoom tablet for sale on their website despite the fact Motorola has yet to confirm the official UK release date. Initially the firm showed seven of the Android tabs as available with free 48 hour delivery for £489.95, at the time of writing these stocks had predictably all disappeared.
Motorola is set for full scale roll out in the UK on the 7th April almost three months after they initially showed off the tablet at CES in January. The tab will sport a 10.1 inch screen and will be one of the first to run Android Honeycomb, AKA 3.0.
The 10.1-inch dual-core processor touting tablet which was officially unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier in the year was set to be released in the UK during the first week of April but an official date or confirmation of launch has yet to be given by manufacturer Motorola.
The listing on Simply Electronics is still live although they now list it as out of stock with no pre-orders offered. Some are saying that this was an early launch; we’d say it’s a premature or false start that probably shouldn’t have happened. Other retailers are still accepting pre-orders; PC World has recently dropped their price to £479.99 in an attempt to attract consumers away from competitors.
Do you have any interest in the Moto Xoom and has it the spec to sway people away from the iPad 2?
