Motorola announces XOOM Wi-Fi tablet in-store date

Motorola has announced the MOTOROLA XOOM with Wi-Fi will hit stores on March 27, 2011. U.S. retailers with plans to carry the tablet include Best Buy, Costco, RadioShack, Sam’s Club (select locations), Staples, Walmart, and Amazon.com.

The Android-platfom MOTOROLA XOOM comes with a 10.1-inch widescreen display in high-definition resolution (WXGA 1280 x 800) that rotates four-ways.

The XOOM runs on a NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual Core processor at 1 GHz with 1GB RAM and 32 GB secure storage.

Cameras include a forward facing 2 MP (1600 x 1200) fixed lens and a 5 MP (2592 x 1944) camera on back.

The tablet comes with the Android WebKit browser and support for Adobe Flash Player. Location services include E-Compass and Simultaneous GPS.

Motorola released the XOOM Android Tablet for Verizon Wireless service in February. The suggested price for the MOTOROLA XOOM Wi-Fi 32 GB config is $599.

Motorola has got a long way to go to catch up with Apple’s iPad, as do other tablet makers.

Apple, who started the tablet generation, just released the iPad 2 and has already exhausted their stock selling somewhere between 500,000 to 1 million units.
