Carphone Warehouse makes Motorola Xoom cheaper
Attractive, truly unlimited data package on offer
Carphone Warehouse has reduced the price of the upcoming Motorola Xoom 3G: it now wants a colossal 20 quid less for the 10in Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet than it did yesterday.
When CW first posted a price for the Xoom - due to arrive around the middle of the month - it was charging a penny less than £600 for the tablet. Now it's charging a penny less than £580.
Alternatively, you can pony up £200 - plus £25 a month for the next two years - and get a Talk Mobile data Sim with it. That means you'll pay £800 over the life of the contract for the Xoom, not bad value if you use a lot of the 3G data.
It's one one TM's so-called "never pay for the internet" deals. You do pay - said £25 a month - but there's no fair use limit on the unlimited data transfers, CW said.
You can sign up at the Carphone Warehouse website.
The Xoom has a 10in, 1280 x 800 touchscreen and a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. ®
20 of your earth currency units off?
Wake me up when it costs less than 250
about 300 quid too much
looking at alternatives via sites like merimobile you can pick up a decent enough android (2.2) based tablet for about 150 incl shipping. as a first gen device to play with while we wait for commodity pricing that's about right
of course before long Amazon will give them away free with an ebook...
RE: "...there's no fair use limit...."
I'd place good money on the fact that there will be fair use limits before the year is out. I see a bait and switch on a shiny new gadget.
(Fail for Carphone Warehouse not you TeeCee)
I mean a few hundred more and you've could get a Mac book air
Marketing never ceases to amaze me
'Never pay for the internet.. only £25 a month'.
That's about double what the average DSL connection costs these days..
