Motorola Xoom Up for pre-orders.


It’s official: The first Honeycomb tablet is only a few days away from release. Best Buy has put up a pre-order page for the Motorola Xoom with prices, accessories and a launch date and, unlike last time, this one doesn’t look like a mistake. On Thursday, you’ll be able to walk into your local Best Buy and walk out with the dual-core, ten inch tablet for $800. If you’re planning to use the 3G-enabled version of the device over wi-fi, be prepared to pay up for some Verizon data; the 802.11n wi-fi is locked without a minimum purchase of at least one month of cell data.

The pre-order page also lists four accessories for the slate: A case, a keyboard and two docks (one with built-in speakers and one without). No word on the wi-fi-only version, which was officially announced by Motorola last week and will cost $600, $200 less than the 3G version.
