    Has anyone been able to confirm the actual release date for the Motorola Xoom? Most tech blogs seem to point at an April 2011 release day with some mentioning as late as May. Seems like it would make sense to push this device out before the iPad 2 is released.

    There seems to be 3 release dates for the motorola xoom. at CES it was said the first shipment in Q1 will be the 3G version which can be upgraded to 4G at a later date. since then the rumors are the wifi only version will be released around april and the complete 4G version will be released in May.
    As for what the actually release date will be for Q1 no one has that info yet. my guess is it will be the beginning of march so that verizon has the whole month of feb to push the new iphone.

    The one that was April was for Argentina!!! and the 3G model for Argentina is for May!

    People need to read articles properly.

    It's not that we expected the Motorola Xoom to forever be tethered to a carrier, but it sounds like we won't be waiting nearly as long as we did for Samsung's WiFi-only Galaxy Tab. Latin America GM Maurizio Angelone has told Infobae that a WiFi-only version does indeed exist and will first arrive in April -- one month before the 3G version will hit the market. The article doesn't specify if those months are specifically for Argentina or if they apply elsewhere as well, but it does sound like it'll be available sooner rather than later.

    Motorola Xoom WiFi-only version confirmed by Motorola Latin American exec -- Engadget

    the xoom will have it's first launch in Feb. the exact date isn't know but it was even said at CES. check out this link Verizon | Leadership Team

    if you scroll down to when they start talking about the xoom, it says:

    SLIDE: MOTOROLA XOOM
    - MOTOROLA XOOM -- what a tablet should be:
    o HD widescreen
    o 1080p output to HDTV
    o 4G-upgradeable
    o Available commercially in February.

    I was also told next month with Verizon, and a few more months until (although still rumor) to purchase without a contract.

    If you look at the video, the availability bullet is not on the slide at all.

    The February release date is spoken, so it could be a mistake.

    They have stated they wanted to sell 800,000 units by the end of Q1...they can't do that if they release it in April

    Over at Engadget they are saying Feb 17th from Best Buy.

    Now...hopefully it won't be $800

    MOTOROLA XOOM TABLET may be launching at Best Buy stores as early as February 17th.Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha has given everyone an update on the Xoom picture via Motorola’s latest earnings call. Whether you are after the 3G or 4G version of the Honeycomb-equipped tablet, you can rest assured that both of them are on the way relatively soon.
