Pricing for the Motorola Xoom tablet, which debuted at CES 2011 in Las Vegas last month, is now official.

According to Reuters, the unsubsidized price for the 4G-upgradeable, 32GB tablet will be $799 with Verizon Wireless, and a Wi-Fi only version will be approximately $600.

There was some worry previously that the Android 3.0-based Xoom would retail for over $1,000. Thankfully, that's not the case. As for the release date, that is still unknown, but rumors still persist on a release before the end of the month, particularly on February 24. The Xoom will also be rolled out in Europe during the second quarter.
