Motorola Xoom UK release: Get it from PCWorld for £500, first week of April

March 4, 2011, By Alex Ion

Motorola Xoom just got dated and priced in the UK. PCWorld is going to sell the device for £500 and will have it ready for British customers willing to pay the price, in the first week of April.

From our knowledge, that’s the first retailer who’ll have the tablet available from day one. On top of that, according to their website which says “Delivery available – 09/04/2011”, the Xoom will actually start shipping from April 9th.

Most of you already know, but for those who don’t, Motorola Xoom runs on a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor that allows it to take advantage of the new features in the new Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system. It has WiFi connectivity (802.11 b/g/n), and comes with a 10.1-inch widescreen display that sports an amazing 1280 x 800 resolution.

Other specs include 32G of built-in storage, 1GB of RAM, a 2 megapixel front camera and a 5 megapixel rear camera that shoots HD (720p) video, microUSB, microHDMI that allows it to connect to HD monitors or TV, Flash support, a gyroscope and a 3.5mm Stereo jack.

For comparison reasons, the Xoom already sells in the US and goes for a much cheaper $599 (that’d be some £370 at today’s rate).

Are you innit?
