WiFi Only Motorola Xoom Now Official – $599 Launching March 27

Motorola has officially announced a WiFi edition of the Xoom tablet. When launched, it will be made available across a number of leading retailers in the US which includes Amazon.com, Best Buy, Costco, RadioShack, Sam’s Club, Staples and Walmart.

Price wise, the 32GB WiFi only model will cost $599. As for the launch date, expect to see it on March 27.

The tablet has a 10.1 inch screen which has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The operating system running is Android 3.0 Honeycomb which we have already seen in the original Xoom and on various other tablets that are soon to launch. Powering the device is a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor from NVIDIA. Basically, Motorola are providing the exact same hardware, but without the 3G/4G connection inside.

Other features include 1GB RAM and on the back, a 5 megapixel camera. Reviews of the 3G model were mixed though in that some cases, it was felt to be pushed out of the door too quick with an OS that wasn’t quite up to scratch. Hopefully Google will address these issues in the near future.
