Motorola Xoom

Motorola’s foray into the Android tablet market – the 10.1-inch Motorola Xoom – is set to land on Australian shores in May, thanks to Telstra. Pricing and release are yet to be nailed down, but inside word is the device will be available with a mobile repayment option (MRO) or via outright purchase.

Warwick Bray, executive director of Telstra Mobility Products, heaped praise on the Xoom tablet in a statement.

“Motorola Xoom arrives at a time when Australians are embracing both mobile tablets and devices powered by Android in record numbers,” he said.

Motorola is holding an event in early May, which is tipped to be the official release of the Xoom tablet and the Atrix smartphone.

Will be interesting to see how the pricing compares to the Galaxy Tab 10.1v on Vodafone. If competitive, Telstra might have a sale.
