Motorola has reduced the price of Xoom sharply in Australia to get some buyers in Christmas shopping season. Consumers can now grab the Xoom Wi-Fi for $399 at JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Costco stores. In other news, Motorola has also started selling RAZR starting yesterday in the country via Optus.
It seems poor sales and holiday season is forcing manufacturers to reduce product prices to get some foot traffic in stores. One of such decisions came from Motorola today, when the company announced that it is reducing Honeycomb tablet Xoom’s price by 39%. At the current pricing, Xoom does seem like a good deal considering that fact that it will be first in line to get the Ice Cream Sandwich update.
On the other hand, telecom operator Optus has started selling season’s one of the most anticipated Android phones ‘Motorola RAZR’. You can now grab one for $0 upfront on their $59 cap over 24 months. You will get $750 worth of national calls and texts, and 2GB of data usage. This plan will cost you $1416 in two years.
