It’s a morning of Motorola pre-orders, though we’re hoping Best Buy’s pricing for the Motorola XOOM isn’t quite finessed yet. The retailer has listed the 10-inch Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet for a whopping $1,199, considerably higher than the $799 we’ve previously seen rumored for the slate.
Now, it’s entirely possible that Best Buy has listed the XOOM temporarily at this figure, and the actual launch – which isn’t expected until later this month – will see a far more affordable price. If this is the unlocked, contract-free price, however, we can’t see Motorola having much luck.[Thanks Magid!]
