Motorola Xoom
Verizon confirms on-contract pricing for Xoom

As we get closer to the launch date of the Motorola Xoom (this Thursday), more details are being revealed on the device. The latest piece of info to come out of Verizon today is that the Xoom will priced at $599 from Verizon with a two-year data contract

As you may recall, the unsubsidized Xoom (with built-in 3G modem) is priced at $799 while the Wi-Fi-only model is priced at $599. Verizon also confirmed that the data plans would start at $20/month for a measly 1GB of data. For comparison, AT&T offers 2GB of data on the iPad 3G for $25/month. 

Another surprising bit of information gleaned from Verizon's press release is that the LTE upgrade that has been talked about for the Xoom will be a free upgrade when it becomes available in the second half of 2011.

The Xoom will be the poster child for Google’s new Android 3.0 “Honeycomb” operating system that his been tailored specifically for tablet devices.

There's a slight typo in the article. AT&T data prices are 250MB for $15, and 2GB for $25. It's not 250MB for $25.
