Through IMCC website, Motorola Xoom 3G (32GB) is already available for order. And the price is RM2,599. RM500 more expensive than Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi only. Does the RM500 justify the need to have 3G connection on the go?
For me, I will sugggest you to subscribe to Yes 4G (RM68 valuepack) and get its Yes Huddle (RM399) and you still get RM33 back. (RM500 – RM399 – RM68 = RM33). You can treat me for makan(food) with that extra RM33. Better Internet speed than 3G and you can let maximum 5 people to connect to Internet and without draining your tablet’s battery. Wi-Fi doesn’t consume more battery juice than 3G.
Heard that Maxis might be launching Motorola Xoom 3G soon and might come with its Ultimate Plan bundle. If that happens, the sale of Motorola Xoom 3G will not pick up. The price is too expensive.
Asus Eee Pad Trasnformer and Acer Iconia Tab is below RM2,000 and offering almost the same specs with Motorola Xoom. What reason should people buy Motorola Xoom? Because of the brand name? US mayabe but Motorola is not that famous and popular in Malaysia. Hopefully, Maxis will do something attractive with Motorola Xoom 3G.
What’s your say?
