    Still no update from Dixons, however just noticed the price has dropped by £20 on the website!
    Now I was lucky and got it for £450, however given they don't have them in stock yet (I'm guessing) but have charged everyone, I think anyone that pre-ordered should get £20 back....!
    I'm going to phone them today and see what they say

    On a related note, I've got my tracking number for the ZooGue Case!

Some of these sites say they have them in stock but then put the delivery times out with about 2 weeks which just mean they don't have them on hand.

    Anyway, called them this morning as their website showed 26 units in stock. They said they actually have them in stock/on hand and that delivery usually takes 2 - 7 working days. They are also selling it for £489.95. So I cancelled my order with Currys and have ordered this from Simply Electronics this morning. Now to see when it actually arrives...

    Have you asked them if they are USA stock? it would seem odd if not since there has been no UK release yet. I am thinking if that is the case you need to think about a charging adapter? also if it were a US 3G then I have been told that is not compatible with the UK GSM.

    Yes I did think about that - if it's US stock with a US charger, I'll return it. But I actually think they are just saying they have them on hand and they are hoping for it to arrive in time to match their delivery window.

    Emailed them today to ask what the status of this is and when it will be shipped but they haven't replied which just makes me more suspicious.

    And now Currys has dropped their price!! Oh well, I guess some patience is required

    Its a pain isn't it! Apparently Motorola are just a bout to start a massive advertising blitz in readiness for the xoom - they should have been doing that months ago in my opinion! When I was researching mobile data options, not one of the phone shops I visited had ever heard of the xoom and worryingly that included Carphone Warehouse

    Hi Folks -First post
    I went in PC world yesterday, in the hope i could have a play with one, as at the time, i was still wavering between the Ipad2 and the Xoom.
    The sales rep showed me the large space they had cleared and set aside for the Xoom display. The machines had been due in last Friday but alas nothing as of yesterday.
    He was still trying to get me to buy an IPad, but eventualy had to admit he didnt have any of those to sell either and were expecting a month delay till they got anymore.
    Sales rep said both Apple and Motorola had the same problem, in that the some of the hardware was made in the tsunami hit area of Japan and they didnt know when the would be making them again.
    I dont know how much truth there was to that, i certanly hope not.

    I went into the Birmingham branch of Black (like a posh version of Currys/PC World run by the same company) to go and have a fiddle around on one and they said that the official release date is April 9th (i.e. Saturday) - they had the stock all ready and waiting down in the basement but were obviously not allowed to release it until the official launch date on Saturday. The guy who I spoke to said although there had been a lot of interest in it and there have been several people pre-ordering it, you can still get one on Saturday if you turn up early - I presume this will be the same for all the branches of Currys/PC World. It's usually the bigger stores that carry stocks of it (like the iPad 2) so it's probably best to check.

    This is for the Wi-Fi model only. I obviously can't vouch for the 3G version as I think only the Carphone Warehouse is stocking it at the moment...

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, that sounds quite positive although I can quite see how the awful events in Japan might have an effect.

    Welcome kohakumark where in the UK are you based?

    Ugh that's the reason why I never pre-order stuff...in the end you'll get your hands on one sooner if you just walk into a store on the day of release...my theory probably doesn't always hold true but in my case, it always has!

    Hmm to cancel the pre-order or not...

    I work for CPW (not sales though) - if I can find out anything this week, I'll give you guys an update...no promises though as I have to find someone to check the POS system for me.

    Just got this from Carphone Warehouse:

    Since you placed your pre-order for Motorola XOOM 3G, the RRP has
    dropped by £20, from £599 to £579.


    We’re passing the saving on to you, by refunding the card you used to
    make your payment with £20 credit!

    The money should appear in your account within 7 working days.

    We now expect stock of the Motorola XOOM 3G to arrive in our warehouse
    on Friday 15th April, for delivery to you on Tuesday 19th April. You’ll
    also receive a FREE dock, worth £34.99.


    Also a tip for 3G buyers, it's cheaper in the long run not to get into a 24 month data contract but to get a SIM card separately, I got mine from here
