Motorola’s Xoom Tablet Priced at $799


Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc’s Xoom tablet will sell for an unsubsidized $799 at Verizon Wireless, with a Wi-Fi-only version priced at around $600 price, chief executive Sanjay Jha said on Wednesday.

When’s that “around $600” version shipping?

“Competing with Apple you have to deliver premium products,” Jha said, adding Xoom software was also upgradable.

But you don’t need to compete on price? Will the software upgrades be as frequent as those for Motorola’s Android phones?

Jha also said the company was looking at possibly having its own application store.

There’s an idea.
