The ever-so-lovely tablet of all Android users' dreams will soon be coming to their favorite retailers' doorsteps in bulk. You'll be able to purchase this fabulous tablet at Amazon.com, Best Buy, Costco, RadioShack, Sam's Club (select locations), Staples, and Walmart, all of them getting the 10.1-inch widescreen tablet for $599 MSRP. The initial rollout of this tablet will be March 27th, 2011. Get your hundreds out!
Sam's Club online now has the Motorola XOOM sitting there looking lovely at $599.74 attached to a 2-year data agreement including 5GB or data at $50 a month with $10 per GB overage fees. This is the 3G version of the tablet (the same one we've got here that'll be able to be upgraded to 4G LTE soon, and it ships free. No sign of the Wifi-only version yet, but heck, you don't want that one anyway, do ya?
So were were hanging out at Costco today and what do we find? A stack of Motorola XOOM Android tablets sitting around unassumingly -- or at least, their cardboard placeholder counterparts. Did they have prices already? Of course they did! For a brand new Motorola XOOM tablet on a 2-year contract on Verizon in the $50-$80 range per month, you can get the otherwise $789.99 tablet for only $589.99. That's the cheapest.
The EVO SHIFT 4G was apparently purchased at both Best Buy and Sam's Club earlier today. Those who pre-ordered the device should be getting theirs very soon.
