Japan to See Motorola Xoom in April

Motorola Mobility today announced they will be bringing the Motorola Xoom tablet to Japan as early as April 2011.

Following a similar pattern to tablet releases in the US, the Motorola Xoom will be available in Japan by means of a telecommunications company. In Japan, starting April 2011, you will be able to get your hands on the world’s first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet by purchasing Motorola Xoom, albeit Wi-Fi only.

“We’re pleased to be introducing Motorola Xoom to Japan,” said Kazuhiko Masuda, general manager of Consumer Service and Product Planning Division for KDDI.

“We are very thankful that Motorola has chosen KDDI as the partner to launch Motorola Xoom. Motorola Xoom is a very exciting product with cutting-edge technology, and we are confident that the Japanese market will welcome the debut of Motorola Xoom.”

If your home base is Japan, head on over to the KDDI Corporation website at www.kddi.com for more details.
