Daily Steals Offloading Brand New Motorola XOOM 4G LTE Tablets for $250

When will supplies of this tablet run out? It seems that at least once or twice a month they go on these flash sale sites and they never disappear. This time, it’s a bit different though. Over at Daily Steals, they have brand new (not refurbished) Motorola XOOM tablets for $250. They are 32GB in size, but the real kicker is that these are the 4G LTE versions and not the WiFi-only variants. When first released, they were $700+ at Verizon.

If you’ve been looking for a good tablet that is built like a tank, then check out the XOOM. It’s still expected to receive Jelly Bean and is the original Android OG tablet. History right here.

Cheers John, Robert, Cory, and Matt!

    I dropped my Xoom on concreat, 3ft to ground; it survived. American no how!

  • Jim Brewer

    I just bought three of them to use at work. That is the best price I have seen for a 4G tablet, and the Xoom is built tough.

  • j_peter

    Why in the world would anyone buy this when you can get an iPad? It’s superior in every way.

    • Sven Enterlein

      Is your only purpose on this site to preach the Cult of Apple? While I have to agree that the Xoom is not the best tab out there not everyone WANTS to get an iProduct (many don’t want to spend tat much money no matter how good it is). Ever heard of freedom to choose? I buy what *I* think is best for *ME*. It can be Apple or Samsung or HTC or even Walmart’s best. You really fit the profile of people that blindly follow without thinking. Which is not even the worst. The worst is that you try to convert others.

      • j_peter

        I’m simply stating the truth. Android users love to preach about how much better their phones are. However, Apple makes the best tablet. There is no debate — no other tablet comes CLOSE to quality of the iPad.

          That’s your truth, not our truth. Our truth says we don’t want to be tied to Apple’s definition of how we should spend our money for apps, music, etc.

          Xoom user here for 18 months. Have an iPad. Never use it. Maybe you’re just wrong.

          • macboy74

            Wow I’m the complete opposite as you. I have a Xoom that i won and an iPad that I bought. My 12 year old uses my Xoom since it is completely useless to me. And I use my iPad. He loves it and does everything on it. Awesome

  • nightscout13

    This is amazing…. Will i be able to buy a Xyboard in 6 months for this price?? That is the one i want.

  • Answer2K1

    Must… Not… Be… Tempted… To… Buy.
    But everything is so much better with the world when you use “android OG” in a sentence…
    (slowly looks over shoulder at my N7)… Forgive me for my weakness, you complete me..

  • Mark

    can anyone recommend me getting this over a nexus 7? i do like the idea of having 4g access and the bigger screen, but i also do have a gnex i can tether from if needed.

    • JoshGroff

      If you don’t mind the smaller screen, lower internal storage, lack of an sd slot, and rear camera, the N7 is the way to go. I tether to mine all the time.

    • Jackson

      Tethering on my Gnex to my n7 drains battery like crazy but I have both so yea…

    • jeesung

      i have both Wifi Xoom and N7 and use the Xoom more because of the larger screen. it’s very smooth with JB and there are a 4G JB ROMs available so you don’t have to wait for VZW.

  • DatterBoy

    Have the wifi and the 4G version. Possibly the most reliable and fully featured tablets out there. Period. I have the Samsung GTab 10.1 as well. Only thing better about it over the Xoom is the thinness and the screen. Not much else.

  • steve

    Question: Does this require signing up for a data plan?

    Thanks

    • http://twitter.com/morpheus282 William

      Only if you want to use the 4G connection. Otherwise you can leave it in flight mode with WiFi enabled and not have to worry about the data plan.

    • steve0617

      VZW has a prepaid monthly data plan. No contract. $20 for 1 gig or $30 for 2. No activation or overage fees. As I just ordered one, I *really* hope the plan is LTE as it doesn’t say it’s not.

  • Jordan Harvey

    I’m so tempted to buy one. I have the N7 but part of me wants a 10″ tablet as well.

    • David Becker

      You don’t want it. Your N7 is nice and light weight and fast already.

    • j_peter

      iPad is the best.

  • http://Twitter.com/ContestsAccount bigrob60

    Oh nooooo’s! You used the phrase “Android OG”, now I have to buy it.

  • Philip A. Kaiser

    I am sure most of you may have forgotten this but after Kellex got his XOOM with the modem in it, he took his SIM card out of his phone and out it in the XOOM. It connected flawlessly if I remember correctly. I think this trick still works.

    • http://Twitter.com/ContestsAccount bigrob60

      If that was the case, weren’t the original LTE SIM cards bigger then the new ones now? And if so, wouldn’t work w/ the new smaller ones?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1373340065 Ming Wei Hsu

        Adapters if you need them. My rezound has a mini sim from a gnexus in it, taped to a cutout original sim card >_<

        • http://Twitter.com/ContestsAccount bigrob60

          MacGyver style. I like it.

  • MichaelFranz

    Love my 4G Xoom. Esprecially since CM10 nightlies are starting for it. Running like a champ right now

  • Jackson

    Its so funny I got mine brand new from Verizon for 199 on cyber Monday so every deal still doesn’t impress me

  • Jackson

    I have the N7 and moto Xoom I use my Xoom every day at home and take my n7 on the road with me

  • Matas

    Just impulse ordered one, thanks DL.

    Now that I think about it, I should have just ordered Nexus 7.

  • cheezer88

    if i didnt love my Nexus 7 so much, i’d buy another on of these

    • evltwn

      +1 Nexus 7 rocks.

  • Detonation

    “List Price: $799.99″ LOL

  • shopdroid

    Still overpriced. $150 and I will bite. They got mountains of these somewhere, next to the piles of xyboards…

    • hkklife

      I would actually LOVE to buy a cheap Xyboard 8.2. It has a unique formfactor ( 8.2 is just the right size) and is decently spec’d, especially if it gets ICS Its built like a tank and charges via microUSB. Only major drawbacks are price and lack of expandable storage.

  • Mrigank Bose

    Would these work on Sprint LTE?

    • http://twitter.com/wschwa Wesley Schwartz

      Nope. Verizon only, sorry.

  • http://profiles.google.com/johnslangster John Lang

    This really is a good deal.
    If you moved to the shared data plan it wouldnt cost much more to add this onto the plan.
    Very nice.Hmmmmmmm very tempted…..

  • philnolan3d

    I love my WiFi Xoom!

    • Lactose_the_Intolerant

      Day one wifi adopter here — Xoom is a beast on Jelly Bean!

      • MichaelFranz

        me 2, day 1

      • philnolan3d

        I won my Xoom from AndroidAndMe a few months after it came out. and yes, it’s great with Jelly Bean.

        • Lactose_the_Intolerant

          +1 for Xoom love.
          -1 for the freebie.

          Offsetting penalties — net gain of zero :p

            So people shouldn’t enter contests?

          • Lactose_the_Intolerant

            lol, nah — just waiting for my turn… all y’all keep getting in my way :p

    • Buy This

      +1

  • JoshGroff

    This is a great deal if you want an unlockable AOSP tablet and yet still require 4G data.

  • azndan4

    Make it 150 and I’ll bite

    • JoshGroff

      250 is quite a bargain, that’s usually what they go for used. Believe me, it’s totally worth it (especially since it’s Motorola with an unlockable boot-loader.)

      • shopdroid

        I picked up a like-new from cowboom for 189 in July and flipped it for 230 on CL. So 249 new is only close to fair price. Certainly not a hot deal.
