Motorola XOOM Dummy Units Arrive in Stores

There hasn’t been any official word out of Verizon’s camp yet, but we’re still expecting the Motorola XOOM to drop this Thursday (24th) and with the arrival of dummy units in stores, Big Red will likely spread the news either tomorrow or Monday.

Update:  Sounds like real units are also in stores.  Looks like we’re on for this week!

Back side after the break!  

Cheers ___!

    They make damb good Laptops and that Tablet looks o so good. Maybe Moto should have had them produce the xoom commercial.

    i dunno what the hell I’m going to do once I finally get it on thurs. All I’ve been doing these last few weeks have been scrounging around for info on it. Once I have it, I don’t think there will anything left on the internet to read about.

    Still not interested in this. Too expensive, still a giant cell phone. I just got a new lappity toppity box for $500 that CRUSHES this thing. The extra $300 can buy me a new phone

    • Budcar38

      You are an idiot. A lap top can not be compared to a tablet. They are 2 different things.

      • k6tcher

        You are right. However, you are wrong too.
        You CAN compare the guts and the costs associated with them.
        Processor to processor. RAM to RAM. Storage to storage… etc.
        I think THAT idea is what people are comparing.

        At least us “idiots” do.

          Okay compare your Honda (“lapity top” to my Acura (xoom).

          • k6tcher

            See, the problem with the “high-priced” tablets (Xoom) is that it is creating the EXACT same atmosphere within Android as we loath with regards to the sheeple and Apple. YOU think because YOU have an expensive tablet, you are “better” than those who own a different product.

            So, people like you are making Android the new Apple.

            Thanks for that.

            I always liked Android for the camaraderie
            and feelings of togetherness in terms of “us” against “ithem.”

            Instead, you are creating an “us” against “us” atmosphere.

            Fragmentation within Android has now spread to the customers too I guess.

            Sad….

          • Budcar38

            Excuse me but I’m the one defending the android product over a lap top so what the hell are you talking about.

            I could care less if you have you have the old galaxy tab or the xoom, android is android. A lap top, what I was referring to as the honda, is not android.

            I was trying to explain why people post comments about the price of the Xoom being so high comparing it to something they are more familiar with… the internals of these laptop PCs (yes the Xoom and a laptop are both PCs).

    It will be available come Thursday which I can’t wait for and while I’ve had some hands on time with it can’t wait to pick one up and with my discount I would have to be crazy not to get one.

    I really want a wifi only version although doesn’t matter much however with nivida already showing quad core processors and tegre 3 processors it makes me want the newer technology even though I don’t need it bit either way glad I waited and didn’t get a galaxy tab are ipad

            Logic and reason = win.

            A) It’s the first Honeycomb tablet. B) It’s made by Motorola, the creator of the “Droid” brand and the company that really kickstarted the competition against Apple. C) It’s the first real, “blows the iPad out of the water” competition that any manufacturer has put out available in large numbers.

    for those wondering what the big deal is. u got to love a touch screen laptop with a android system instead of windows. and everythig u can do on a note book or laptop can be done on tablet with apps. like the one for wireless printing over a network or through the clouds

    • k6tcher

      “everythig u can do on a note book or laptop can be done on tablet with apps”

      Not true. Just not true… yet. And if you are going to compare this tablet to a laptop… a laptop at the same price overwhelmingly wins against the tablet market.

      Don’t get me wrong, I like tablets. I even own two. But for someone like me who teaches and creates content for students from SCRATCH, a tablet falls short… extremely short.

  • I don’t get it

    I’m still trying to understand the “absolutely need this” element of this or any tablet for that matter. I’m not trying to troll, I swear. Other than a different form factor, what exactly do tablets provide that you already aren’t getting out of your laptops/netbooks? I just don’t understand how in this economy so many of you can drop this kind of coin on something that you already have covered in your other gadgets. Am I to believe that the new form factor is THAT big of a deal? Help me out, guys. For $800 and a little time looking around, you can get a laptop with double or even triple the capabilities…

    • Eric

      I completely agree with you dude. It must be all the bells and whistles it has. I truly believe most people are stupid by nature.

    • Rayman411vm

      I really don’t think think there is anything to get…its a luxury device; i’m pretty sure no one needs one. I think they are interesting devices but i personally will not purchase one until it can replace my laptop.

      Yeah a very valid point. I agree more because of the price point though. If it was $400, I’d get one in a heart beat!

      Agreed. I would so much rather get an Alienware M11X, and I can get the 600 dollar one, customize it a little, and it’ll cost about 800. And it’ll do so much more. In fact, I am gonna do that. Screw all these overpriced tablets that don’t do anything my phone can’t.

      • Anonymous

        i have a m11x and love the hell out of it.

    • Anonymous

      This is what I am hoping I will confirm when I actually play around with one…

      I have a mac laptop and have for awhile but always looked at all sides of the tech equation without ignorantly pressing forward always believing the turtleneck is right. My brother got me addicted to this web-site and to android in general when I got my droidx. Since then I have purchased a google tv, and for a while I was using a printer that ran on android (had issues and needed diff functions for my business). The integration of all these internet-based devices has changed how I do things for school, business, and life in general so much that I am very excited to be able to replace my laptop with a device that is built around the concept of the internet, and will constantly be updating itself. My phone is similar in this sense, and that is one reason I love android, not to mention the openness. The tablet is different from the phone in obvious ways- the ‘largest’ being the screen.

      I could go on but feel like that’s already long-winded enough. I totally understand where you are coming from, especially concerning the economy, but those are a few of the reasons I am looking forward to the new technology that I think will continue with the android trend of making multi-tasking in life ever easier.

    • palomosan

      Well I don’t have a laptop, I have a netbook but that thing is worthless ( I bought it on the cheap) at least this new tablets can play 1080p video and be more practical that a conventional laptop.

      Again is all about choice I’ll say, look how many people have the bought the iPad and that’s just an over size iPhone.

    • DBK

      IMHO, it’s probably has more to do with having an Android-running netbook/laptop-esque device. There is as much windoze hate here as there is iHate.

      When it comes to serious business use or replacing laptops/netbooks, tablets are not quite there yet. To me, tablets feel more like luxury items. You don’t really need one (even though you may want one) and the prices are somewhat beyond what many can afford.

      Me? I’ll stick with my rooted, Honecomb-rockin’ NookColor. :P
