Motorola Xoom Release Date Leaked, Again

by Reads (7,742)

So Motorola, which day is it, the 17th or the 24th? At CES, the company claimed the Xoom Honeycomb tablet will be available sometime during Q1, which has led to endless attempts to figure out the actual date of release.

Last week, a Best Buy insider leaked a document which said the Xoom will be available on February 17. Well, Best Buy is at it again, with a Grand Rapids location of the national electronics store announcing via its Facebook page that the Xoom will launch on February 24.

One Facebook user responded to the post, asking “What kind of confirmation is there?” to no response. Also, when pressed for pricing details, the Best Buy location said that it couldn’t release that information to customers, yet.

It’s hard to know exactly how reliable this release date is. The Grand Rapids Best Buy hasn’t removed the information from its page yet, despite the coverage. But whether this is a credible release date or just another false start is subject to plenty of speculation.

The announcement also included leaked dates for the HTC Thunderbolt and Samsung Presto Hotspot, and mentioned the already known release date of the Verizon iPhone 4.
