UK consumers who have pre-ordered the Motorola Xoom initially thought that their long awaited tablet would be delivered on Friday 8th April. That date came and went but a new email from PC World has suggested that Xoom pre-orders will start to roll out on Monday.
One of our readers, Darrell Metcalfe sent us a copy of an email from DSG Retail who own and operate PC World, Curry’s and Dixons. It began: “We are delighted to tell you that we will begin delivery of all pre-orders of the Motorola Xoom on Monday of next week.”
The email also tries to explain the delay, “After a short delay for final testing, Motorola and Google are now absolutely certain that the Xoom WiFi is the best tablet money can buy.” The full email can be seen on the screenshot below, just click on the image to enlarge.
Although the email does seem to be rather informal it definitely came from a verified email address. So it seems some lucky UK residents will receive their Xoom Monday 11th onwards. The email also points out that customers who paid £499.99 for the Xoom will receive £20 in an automatic refund with no further action needed on their part.
