Carphone Warehouse price up the Xoom – £599.99

Carphone Warehouse price up the Xoom   £599.99We took time out last month at Mobile World Congress to get a hands-on with the new Motorola Xoom. It packs a 10.1″ screen, dual cameras, HD / HDMI, dual-core 1GHz CPU, 1GB RAM and 32GB internal RAM. After a few ups and downs the WiFi-only version appeared on the PC World website for £499.99. Carphone Warehouse have now put the 3G-equipped model online for an eye-watering £599.99… yes, a full £100 more for true mobile browsing.

Our tip ? Go get yourself a MiFi or try and grab the Xoom with a contract.

  • they must be high at that price! either get your self a wifi one and tether as you suggested or get a vega and tether that!! :)

  • if its anything like the galaxy tab, the price will sharply drop. I picked up a galaxy for a mere £250 (brand new from hmv) a month ago.

    the price will drop, i mean who in their right mind dropped £599 for a galaxy tab when it first came out.

    • £250 Galaxy Tab, well done. My HMV did not even know what they were

      The technology in the Xoom is far superior to the Galaxy Tab, when Samsung release their 10.1″ version it is most likely to retail at the same price..

      Samsung are replacing it with the Galaxy Tab 2, I think that’s the reason for the price drop as no one would pay £599 for a device that’s being replaced imminently an Samsung need to sell them before the new one is released.
