U.S. Cellular Launches Moto Xoom

That’s right, the Xoom is no longer a Verizon exclusive. U.S. Cellular began selling the Android 3.1 tablet today, and it’s sure to bring business up a notch. After a quick first glance, it appears to be exactly the same as the Verizon Xoom. I did make one note, however: the U.S. Cellular version doesn’t directly connect to the network.

That’s right, the Xoom is no longer a Verizon exclusive. U.S. Cellular began selling the Android 3.1 tablet today, and it’s sure to bring business up a notch. After a quick first glance, it appears to be exactly the same as the Verizon Xoom. I did make one note, however: the U.S. Cellular version doesn’t directly connect to the network. Users will have to add a $25 data plan to their line in order to tether the Xoom to their smartphone, thus utilizing the network. Of course, you could always just buy the Xoom and use it as a WiFi tablet.

Granted, this isn’t just a sudden launch. U.S. Cellular made the official announcement back in April, and the device is just making it onto shelves today. Sadly, it’ll cost you exactly the same as its Big Red brother, at $599.99. It’ll be interesting to see how this device sells on U.S. Cellular, who haven’t made any promises regarding 4G or LTE, unlike Verizon, who promised an LTE upgrade for Xoom users. But enough of this chit-chat. If you’ve heard enough and want to pick up a Xoom for yourself, you can check out the Xoom page here.

So, what say ye, our faithful readers? Excited that Motorola is branching out with the Xoom? Don’t think it’ll sell very well on U.S. Cellular? Leave a comment below, or on our Facebook Wall! The full press release can also be found below.
