If you needed an excuse for getting a Wi-Fi Motorola XOOM tablet an excuse has appeared. Motorola is offering the Wi-Fi version of their first Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet with a free Bluetooth wireless keyboard, worth $69.99 direct from Motorola.
The keyboard provides full QWERTY key support and the keys are laid out in a chic-let style with spaces between each key. Motorola offers the keyboard with direct support with the XOOM and the company’s flagship Atrix smartphone. At this time the keyboard alone is available for as low as $53 shipped online, but why pay that on top of the $599 required for a Wi-Fi XOOM?
You can capture this deal, which has no set expiration date of note, direct through Motorola.com only. Keep in mind that the XOOM tablet that you can order will come with Android 3.1, the most current version of the young Android Honeycomb operating system for tablets.
