After all the speculation and then the mysterious disappearance of a Best Buy ad, we finally have an official number for the Motorola Xoom price tag. Motorola chief executive, Sanjay Jha, confirmed that the Xoom will sell for $799 unsubsidized and $600 for the WiFi-only version.
“Competing with Apple you have to deliver premium products,” said Jha, adding that the Xoom software is also upgradable. “I am as focused on Android as I ever have been. As a result of Nokia adopting Microsoft it’s possible that some of the other players concentrate on Android,” said Jha.
He also stated that almost all Motorola products this year will use Google’s Android platform but that they would still like to see alternative options remain on the market. “I hope there will be at least three or four. I love Android, but I hope as hell there won’t be just one”
