The Motorola Xoom went on sale in the UK today – in a manner of speaking.
Officially, it won’t be out until the weekend, or possibly not until next week, according to shipping estimates from the Dixons Group which is carrying the wi-fi version.
However, according to a report on T3, Simply Electronics had seven of the wi-fi Xoom available to purchase today, priced at £490 (a tenner more than Dixons).
If you want one early, unfortunately the online retailer doesn’t have any left, with an out of stock message now up on the website.
The Xoom is the first Honeycomb Android toting rival to the iPad 2 to arrive on these shores. It comes with a 10 inch display, 32GB of storage, and twin cameras.
Sales in the States have thus far been sluggish, according to reports, with problems cited including poor battery life and the instability of Honeycomb.
