It seems that employees of mass market retailers who sign non-disclosure agreements can't keep their mouths or cameras shut. A Sam's Club insider leaked information and pricing for the Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi launch at Sam's Club.
Previously, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jah said that the Wi-Fi Xoom would be priced at $599. The Sam's Club display shows a price of $539. Video chat is shown as a feature, and Sam's Cub buyers will get a free protective gel case. Ads for the Wi-Fi Motorola Xoom in the U.K. show a price of 449 Euros, which equates to a price of $730 U.S and is not competitive with the new Wi-Fi iPad pricing. The Wi-Fi Motorola Xoom will be launched in Europe in April.
The Wi-Fi Xoom has the same dual-core processor and 32GB of storage, which makes it cheaper than the Wi-Fi-only iPad2 that
will sell for $599 for 32 GB, but it is more expensive than the Wi-Fi iPad2
16B priced at $499. Apple never discounts its products unless they are
refurbished or being replaced by a newer model. Many reports suggest
that the iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom are neck and neck in hardware specifications.
Reviewers liked the speed and power of the Motorola Xoom tablet with Verizon Wireless data access that will be upgraded to 4G LTE in the future.but thought it was a bit pricey. IHS iSuppli set the cost of materials for the Motorola Xoom at $359.92.
