Dixons prices up Motorola Android 3.0 tablet
Then un-prices it
Dixons has removed pricing and pre-order information from the Motorola Xoom page on its PC World website .
Earlier today, the retailer said on the page that it would charge £450 for the 10.1in Android tablet, and invited interested punters to "pre-order today".
Within hours, the offer had been withdrawn, and buyers are now told simply to "come back soon".
Dixon's Currys site says the same .
If you think £450 is spectacularly cheap for a large tablet that comes with Android 3.0, dual-core processor tech, fast 3D graphics, two cameras, 802.11n wireless networking and HSPA 3G connectivity, bear in mind that Dixons is offering the Wi-Fi-only model.
Carphone Warehouse has the exclusive on the 3G Xoom .
And if either incarnation of the tablet is released here too early, it'll be no more able to play Adobe Flash content than the iPad can , though unlike the Apple gadget this will change when Motorola releases a software update in "Spring 2011".
CW expects the 3G Xoom to arrive in April. In Germany, T-Mobile has the tablet's availability pencilled in for the end of that month. ®
