Motorola XOOM

The Motorola XOOM was the first tablet to hit the streets running Google Android Honeycomb a few months ago. But it’s also one of the most expensive Android tablets available. A 3G model will set you back $799, and up until recently a WiFi-only model cost a whopping $599. Compare that with the Asus Eee Pad Transformer which sells for $400 or the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 which starts at $500.

Now Motorola has officially dropped the price of the WiFi-only tablet to $499. That’s still about $100 more than Asus charges for its tablet, but the XOOM also has 32GB of storage while the Eee Pad Transformer has just 16GB.

The Motorola XOOM WiFi tablet has a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, Android 3.1 operating system, a 24Whr battery, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, a 2MP front-facing camera, and a 5MP rear camera with auto-focus and an LED flash.
