Motorola XOOM Keyboard Available February 14th on Amazon, Launch Day?

How does February 14th sound as a launch day for the Motorola XOOM?  According to Amazon, a bluetooth keyboard made for our first Honeycomb tablet will be “in stock” on Valentine’s Day which has us jumping to the hopeful conclusion that it’ll be in our hands at that same time.  We should also point out that our friends over at Phandroid were tipped to the same date, which is the kick off for MWC (Mobile World Congress).  While this keyboard is not an “official” accessory, we’re still willing to talk about it because the XOOM is just that awesome.

To put that into perspective, V-Day is only 3 weeks away.

Cheers Jonathan!

    I still have my ingenious Palm folding keyboard which was a feat of mechanical innovation.. unfortunately it communicates via infrared, so it’s a useless toy in my drawer…. sigh….

    The item is not sold by Amazon. it is a 3rd party reseller and they can put any in stock date they want. for example, now it says Feb 1st…..

    This is a universal keyboard that is being sold for MANY more devices (iPad, PS3, Galaxy Tab, etc…). All of which have a said february 14th release date. This points to nothing and does not show that the release date of the Xoom is the 14th. Link for proof:

    what a god awful looking keyboard. since it will support any BT keyboard it would be nice to have a small or foldable, or portable keyboard. the apple bt keyboard would be better.

    Apparently, this keyboard is launching for a whole list of devices the same day. Doubt that this means Xoom will launch that day.

    Honestly, the possibility of Xoom coming out Feb 14th.. gives me wood. It will never happen though.. Hate to be a pessimist here, but the likelihood of that is astronomical.. sorry

    am i the only person who is not hype about getting a tablet,,,, i mean my next phone purchase will be my 4g tablet and phone.. bc it will be min 4.3 inch.. and that phone will be able to do everything that the tablet will do..

    and if i do breakdown and get one it wont be a 10 inch.. the 7 inch verson would be way better for me.. the 10 inch widescreen ones look long as hell in peoples hands

      I’m with you there on the size thing. I have a DX that can pretty much do everything a tablet can do. I don’t want a 10″ tablet – I’d much prefer a 7″ since that would be so much easier to carry around outside the house.

      That being said – the Xoom looks so sexy that its making me rethink all that.

    Perhaps I’ll get one of these for my wife.

    (And when I say “for my wife,” I mean in the same manner that a PS3 or 50 inch LCD TV would be for her.)

    While these are just “universal” accessories, I still like the date though. One can dream.

    If you want prices on the real Xoom accessories though, I thought this was interesting, too bad the ETA for all of them is unknown: http://www.mobilecityonline.com/wireless/store/search.asp?keywords=xoom

      He pointed out it wasn’t an “official” accessory. Usually when accessories like this pop up on Amazon or eBay before launch, usually indicates a near launch.

        Definitely know it’s not official. We just like talking all things XOOM. :)

      That company is making keyboards for everything under the sun, including the i*ad and the Galaxy Tab. All are launching on the 14th of February. The date has nothing to do with the XOOM launch date.
