Motorola’s Xoom tablet is priced at $799 at Verizon Wireless. The WiFi-only version is available for $600. Chief executive Sanjay Jha said “competing with Apple you have to deliver premium products.” He added that the Xoom software is upgradeable.
Motorola is a entering an already bustling market for tablet computers, the first of which being Apple’s iPad that was created last year.
“I am as focused on Android as I have ever been. As a result of Nokia adopting Microsoft it’s possible that some of the other players concentrate on Android,” Jha said. He continued to say that he hopes that alternative operating systems will stay on the market as well. “I hope there will be at least three or four. I love Android, but I hope as hell there won’t be just one.”
