Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi model launches March 27
The Wi-Fi version of the Motorola Xoom will be available at various retailers starting March 27, the company announced Wednesday.
The 10.1-inch tablet will be at Amazon.com, Best Buy, Costco, RadioShack, select Sam's Club locations, Staples, and Walmart - both in-store and on their Web sites.
The Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi with 32GB of memory will cost $599.
Motorola said the Xoom Wi-Fi will also be available to commercial IT channels and regional retailers through a distribution agreement with Synnex Corporation, and regional carriers through Brightpoint.
The 3G version of the Xoom launched last month for $599.99 with a two-year contract or $799.99 without a contract. Wireless 3G data runs $20 per month for 1GB, and the Xoom will be upgradeable to Verizon's 4G LTE service for free in the second quarter.
The Xoom is a 10.1-inch tablet running a 1-GHz dual-core processor and Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It has a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video chat and a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera for HD video capture. The Xoom made headlines for its initial lack of Flash support, but Verizon said recently that a new update will bring Adobe Flash Player 10.2 to the Xoom by March 18.
