Motorola's CEO spills the beans on Xoom pricing

Reuters today confirmed what we already know about the Motorola Xoom (3G/CDMA) -- it will be priced at $799 unsubsidized through Verizon. There will also be a Wi-Fi-only model available for $599. 

"Competing with Apple you have to deliver premium products," said Sanjay Jha, Chairman and CEO of Motorola Mobility.

The $799 price tag for the Xoom 3G will get you 32GB of storage space, a 10" display, and a dual-core processor. Despite it devilishly good looks and sleek Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" operating system, the data plans for the tablet may be a little bit harder to swallow. Data packages are reported to start at $20/month for a mere 1GB and top out at $80/month for 10GB. 

Motorola's Xoom will officially launch next Thursday. 

Jha also chimed in on the whole Nokia/Microsoft saga, stating, "I am as focused on Android as I ever have been. As a result of Nokia adopting Microsoft it's possible that some of the other players concentrate on Android," Jha continued. 

These comments come just a day after another Motorola exec expressed no interest in adopting Windows Phone 7 for its smartphones. "I don't envision us using Microsoft. I would never say never but it's not something we're entertaining now," said Verizon Corporate VP Christy Wyatt.





"We don't know how to make a $500 computer that's not a piece of junk." -- Apple CEO Steve Jobs
