WiFi-only Android tablets fill a valuable product category niche. So, I’m always interested to find more information about this product category. Big box warehouse store Costco sent email notices to their customers last week Friday to let them know that they could pre-order the WiFi-only Motorola Xoom tablet. Although Costco’s price is only $10 below the normail retail price, they do throw in a $22 Gel Skin Case with the purchase to sweeten the deal. And, Costco extends the manufacturer’s warranty to two years from the date of purchase. I’m extremely tempted to either order one from Costco.com or wait to see if the local Costco store starts to sell the WiFi-only Xoom.
I noticed that Costco had the 3G Xoom available at the local store near me over the weekend (photo below).
