UK retailer PC World announced today that they will be the first to carry the wifi-only Motorola XOOM and are letting people pre-order theirs today for £499.99. They even slapped a “1st week of April” time frame on it which is great news for Euro playaz. What about us though? While Moto CEO Sanjay Jha has been talking about this wifi-only model for weeks, we’re still a little surprised that we haven’t heard a peep out of a stateside retailer and really have zero idea as to when this mysterious device could show up in the U.S. And not that I’m into offering up advice to corporate execs, but they might want to get on it, especially with the iPad 2 and its various versions including a 16GB ($499) wifi version hitting stores on March 11.
Cheers to everyone who sent this!
