Motorola Xoom UK Price: Has The iPad 2 Killed Your Interest?

March 3, 2022 | Tim Ollason

The Morotola Xoom is the device that won best-in-show at CES 2011 which is no easy task, especially when there were more than fifty tablet PCs showcased amongst other things. You have to wonder if the iPad 2 was at CES would it have taken that crown?

Anyway the Motorola Xoom 3G pricing for the UK has been talked about by Engadget’s Vlad Savov, he is reporting that it is showing up over on the Carphone Warehouse website for £599.99 SIM free along with some details about the new tablet.

This follows on from the WiFi only model being shown at PC World for £499.99 which as Phandroid’s Kevin Krause reports equates to roughly $815 which is a little bit more expensive than the 3G version off contract with Verizon. Compare these prices to the US and tell us what you notice.

Now that we know the iPad 2 is definitely on its way and it seems to be priced extremely competitively, we are wondering if the iPad 2 has managed to kill off your interest in the Motorola Xoom or not?

Given the choice of the Motorola Xoom or the Apple iPad 2, which will you choose? Let us know in the comments below.

    I think I would go for the Xoom.. I was over in the US following the release quite closely and it seems like a top gadget - I believe there is also talk that it will be upgradeable to 4G in the future - for free, something iPad will never do…
    I still think its over priced for a tablet pc thought, they both are.

    I’ ve pre ordered a xoom. The benefits of android honeycomb are what does it for me. For me the original ipad was just a bigger version of my ipod touch. The ipad 2 doesn’t move the stakes on far enough.

      I Thought from reading the spec's i wanted it, i am lucky that i am on business in the USA right now. I popped in to a Verizon store and now it is my quest to have one. it looks solid, and sleek.

      I know i have not seen the ipad 2 but they just gone overboard on the way they lock you into the Apple eco-system.

      Xoom all the way regardless, let’s hope the price competition causes the Xoom to be a little cheaper.

    Still want a xoom All they have done to the Ipad is make it quicker and copy the other tablets by adding cameras.
