Dixons drops Motorola Xoom price... again

Retailer blinks first, before punters

Motorola Xoom

Dixons has knocked the price of the 32GB Motorola Xoom tablet to £329 - not at all bad when you consider the fondleslab was priced at £500 at launch.

And the other 32GB Xoom, the one with 3G connectivity as well as Wi-Fi, is now just £400, down from £580.

Both versions run Android 3.0 Honeycomb - though Android 3.1 is now available to download as an update - on a 10.1in, 1280 x 800 touchscreen. The whole thing runs on an Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU.

In the middle of August, Dixons lowered the Wi-Fi only price to £400. Clearly, that wasn't enough to pull in the punters, and it feels it has to drop the price even further. Will it tempt you?
