Motorola XooM minisite is live, $800 at launch on Feb 24th

In case you missed it the Motorola Xoom promo played during the Super Bowl this past Sunday.
The commercial clearly aims to remind the viewer of the 1984 Super Bowl ad which is arguably one of the best Super Bowl ads ever.

OS: Android 3.0 Honeycomb
Display: 10.1"
Weight: 730 g
Processor: NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2: 1GHz dual-core processor
Battery: Up to 10 hours video playback

  • 3.5 mm 
  • micro USB 2.0, 
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 
  • 3G, 4G LTE upgradeable
  • 720p capture/1080p playback/streaming
  • 5MP rear-facing camera with dual LED flash/ 2MP front-facing camera
  • 32GB internal memory SD card support after software update.  
  • 1GB DDR2 RAM

Leaked BestBuy images showed the device being priced at $800 and launching on February 24th.
The heavy $800 price tag along with the data plan requirements (minimum of 1 month data subscription required to unlock Wi-Fi) could hold this device back from being the hit android tablet that it has the potential to be.  At $800 the Xoom is competing with the high-end iPad which runs $829 but leaves 5 other versions of  Apple's tablet a cheaper option. Not to mention having to compete with cheaper Android devices. Will you be purchasing one? Tell us below in the comments.

Here's a quick hands on demo video of the Motorola Xoom from CES a month ago.
