Carphone Warehouse prices up 3G Xoom

Not cheap

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Carphone Warehouse has finally revealed what it plans to charge for Motorola's Xoom, the flagship Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet.

It will want 600 quid for the 10in, HSPA 3G-enabled fondleslab.

That's £100 more than Dixons' PC World and Currys stores will be asking for the Wi-Fi only Xoom. However, CW will bundle a £34 charging dock with its tablets.

For now, CW is not selling the Xoom at a price subsidised by a mobile broadband contract taken out at the same time. It's not offering PAYG packages with the tablet, either.

CW's website says the first Xooms are expected "early April". Dixons last week said it is expecting stock on 9 April.

Xoom is powered by a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core chip and packs in 1GB of memory, a 1280 x 800 touchscreen display, 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, an HDMI port, GPS, two cameras - 2Mp and 5Mp - 32GB of storage and a Micro SD card slot. ®
