While the Xoom has already launched here in the States with the Wi-Fi only model coming later this month, Motorola has now announced the availability of the Wi-Fi only model for Canada. Prospective buyers can expect to get their hands on the tablet starting April 6th for around $600 CAD (=$614 US / 432 €). Electronics stores Future Shop and Best Buy are already taking pre-orders for the device online.
Unfortunately for Canada, Motorola has yet to officially release the 3G version of the Xoom for the country. Whereas the 3G model was released first before the Wi-Fi model in the U.S., it appears the order will be in reverse for Canada. The mobile network Telus is expected to be the carrier for the Xoom when the 3G tablet releases sometime mid 2011.
