Motorola Xoom

Someone from Bestbuy has leaked an upcoming ad which shows the new Motorola Xoom priced at $799 and according to the leaked picture you’ll have scoup up at least a month long data plan from verizon. Release date is set for February 24th. We here at NerdyCow can not wait to bring one of these back to the Barn…


To stay on track with the Bestbuy news, Engadget has pictures of the new white iphone tickets being made for Bestbuy’s shelves. So all you pimps and orange looking tanned people, get ready for the white iPhone it’s right around the corner.

Also in the iPhone world, verizon iPhoners have now started receiving their handsets. Just check youtube to see all the psychos showing you how they carefully open the golden package. Thanks plastic and boxes being opened are always awesome. Wait why did I just watch 7 different people open it. Damn…
