Motorola XOOM Availability Announced For Europe

It has been known for awhile that Verizon would be carrying the Motorola XOOM in the US (and have a Wi-Fi only version), but other than that, not much was known about availability in other areas, until just recently when Motorola announced that the XOOM will release in Europe in Q2. In addition, Motorola has also published full specs on the CDMA, GSM, and Wi-Fi only variants of the XOOM.

Consumers in the UK will be able to purchase the 3G/Wi-Fi variant through Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy, while the Wi-Fi only version will only be available through PC World and Currys.

For the rest of Europe, Deutsche Telekom will be responsible for bringing the XOOM to “selected markets”, but they make no mention of whether or not both the Wi-Fi only and 3G/Wi-Fi varaints will be available. I'd assume Germany will be one of the markets supported, as well as Poland, Austria, Czech Republic, and the Netherlands, but there's no way to know for sure until we get official word from Deutsche Telekom.

Pricing remains a mystery officially, but I'd except the numbers to be roughly the same as in the US, with 600 Euros for the Wi-Fi only, and 800 Euros for the 3G/Wi-Fi XOOM.

As for the released specs, Motorola published an exhaustive list on their site listing all three variants of the XOOM. No real suprises, but we do finally know that the GSM variant will have HSDPA 10.1 Mbps and HSUPA 5.76 Mbps support.

The specs of all variants seem to be exactly the same, excluding their radios. One thing I didn't realize until just now is that the Xoom does not appear to have vibrate notification support, which might be a let-down for some. Check out the spec list yourself here.
