The group that brought you the very first Android 3.0 Honeycomb device, Motorola, is currently running a promotion for owners of that device, allowing them to exchange a relatively quick registration process for the ability to purchase official accessories for 50% off their original list price. Motorola is promoting this offer through several sources including their official Facebook Page where they remind users that they’ve got until Noon ET to take advantage of this special offer. This offer also comes on top of a similar Buy a Motorola Xoom Wifi and get a Bluetooth Keyboard Free offer, leading us to believe that they’ve got a surplus of accessories waiting in the wings.
User can also take advantage of the excellent Motorola XOOM Keyboard Folio Case for $85 and free 2-day shipping or grab a Camera Connection Kit if you’re lucky enough to be in one of the Verizon locations carrying such an oddity. For everyone else, there’s a big 15% off sale going on online at Verizon Wireless, this including every single XOOM accessory they’ve got in stock. This selection is missing, notably, the camera connection kit just mentioned, and has the keyboard folio case for a grand total of $84.99, nearly 1/6 the cost of the unit itself.
