Confirmed! Motorola Xoom Malaysia launch happening April 28

Posted:  April 25, 2011   By:    11 comments   


It looks like the Motorola Xoom will indeed be launched “just before” the iPad 2.

We’ve just receive a media invitation to the launch of the Motorola Xoom happening on April 28 which serves as confirmation that the tablet will be launched just a day before the iPad 2 in Malaysia.

The Motorola Xoom will be the first tablet in the country to run Android’s tablet only Honeycomb OS. With a 10.1-inch screen, 32GB of on board storage, a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP forward-facing camera, 1GB of RAM with a 1GHz dual-core processor, the Xoom is the iPad 2’s closest competitor and the most competent.

But the next-gen specs on the Motorola Xoom come with a hefty asking price — USD$799 for the 3G version and USD$599 for the WiFi version. For Malaysia, it is almost a certainty that we will be getting the WiFi only version.

The launch partner for the Motorola Xoom is none other than Maxis and it will be interesting to see what sort of plans the telco will introduce considering that the Malaysia-bound Xooms are WiFi only devices which don’t really need a telco plan.

This development is bound to make quite a number of iPad 2 would be buyers think twice and adopt a wait and see approach. If the price is right we’re pretty sure that there will be a few that’s going to forgo the iPad 2 and go for the Xoom instead.

What do you think?

Motoxoom sucks! Believe me, not worth to buy for that premature device.
In the good side, it has great maps, gmail client with neat notification. Other than that just poor thought device.

Also, with lack of physical button, and on/off button at the back, made it even bad.

for me, its mainly the price. if its anything like the US pricing, its a turn off. motorola seems to have gotten cocky since their droids are selling so well in US.

if i do go for tablet, it will be the playbook. incomplete but i trust in the next few months, the updates, etc will make the OS 'whole'… and the pricing is 'right'. 🙂
