Motorola Xoom

Motorola Mobility has announced its European retail arrangements for the upcoming Xoom tablet.

According to Moto's press release, the Xoom will arrive on European shores in the second quarter of 2011. In the UK, the Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy will stock the 3G/WiFi version, while the WiFi-only Xoom will be available at PC World and Currys. Elsewhere, Motorola says that T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom will introduce the Xoom in "selected markets".

No prices were mentioned, but the Xoom was recently given a price of $799 for 3G/WiFi and $600 for WiFi-only in the US. Inflated European prices are pretty much par for the course when it comes to consumer electronics though, so we'd expect the Xoom to retail for more than exchange rates would suggest. [Motorola Media Center]
