XOOM Launch Kicks Off in UK Thanks to Amazon, But Already Sold Out [Bummer]


We all knew Motorola’s Honeycomb tablet – the XOOM – would be making its way ‘cross the pond, but it’s been reportedly hard to find in stores as most aren’t advertising it or don’t have it in stock yet. Amazon has gone ahead and put the thing up for sale if you’re wanting to get your hands on it, though, and all it’ll cost you is  570 quid.

Steep asking price, yes, but it’s the best you’re going to get until carriers start offering it on data tariffs, if ever. I already have some bad news for you folks, though: the WiFi-only version is sold out. And the 3G version – which’ll cost 670 quid – won’t be available until May 9th. Treat this as a heads-up to keep checking Amazon and your other favorite retailers every day for stock as this thing seems to sell as faster than anyone can actually find them. [via EuroDroid]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. So how much is that in dollars?

    1. a lot.

    2. $929, but it’s cheaper in other shops

  2. It’s £470 in PCWorld and Currys stores

  3. Although that was the 16GB WiFi only version.

  4. Wow, has the universe imploded or something? Amazon Xoom is more expensive than Currys and not just by a little, but £90! Currys is always much more expensive than everywhere else so wtf is going on with Amazon?

  5. Not that much of a bummer. I waited patiently for the wifi version, made several attempts to buy it, didn’t get it until after April shipping. Returned it 3 days later disappointed as can be as I refuse to buy apple, but would rather wait for a tablet with 3.0 that doesn’t lag worse than my smartphone. Motorola, FAIL!

    1. you must have gotten a buggy unit. mine has no lag, works great.

  6. Ah yes, the perpetually sold out, but terribly selling Xoom.

  7. PC World and Currys do it for £480 and it made it across the pond ages ago… btw £480 is $783
