Motorola officially announced the availability WiFi XOOM yesterday, and which retailers would be carrying it. Although the WiFi variant of the XOOM will not be on the market until March 27th, it seems Costco is already offering a promotion. Pre-orders are available now through this retailer at a price of $589.99 and all customers that pre-order this tablet will receive a free gel-skin to help protect this new investment.
Customers that take advantage of this sale can expect their XOOM’s to ship April 1st, which is a few days after the initial release. Of course this raises a question. Why pre-order when you won’t be receiving your device until after the release?
