When you think about the Motorola Xoom, what springs to the forefront of your mind, some of us at OSM’s thoughts are the best in show at CES 2011, Android Honeycomb 3.0 and of course that other minor detail, overpriced. The only plus side to the price being high is that it can’t go any higher and that it can only come down right?
According to Slashgear’s Chris Davies the Motorola Xoom WiFi model has received a slight reduction from the UK retailer Dixons. We say let the Motorola Xoom price drop war begin! The device is normally priced at £499.99 in the UK and Dixons have taken the WiFi version down by £20 a few days prior to its release.
This is perhaps the start and we may start seeing the odd bargain weekend here and there for the Xoom, we may start seeing other retailers taking off an extra £20 or £30 off the markup to get people into their stores.
If the price does start to drop then this device could turn into an even bigger threat to the likes of the Apple iPad 2 and the BlackBerry PlayBook. The device from Apple will undoubtedly be as iconic as its predecessor and the PlayBook is building a pretty impressive following too.
If the Motorola Xoom price comes down any further would you pick it over an iPad 2 or a BlackBerry PlayBook? Let us know in the comments section below.
