Motorola Xoom tablet finally goes on sale Thursday, after a month of speculation on its price and release date. First revealed at last month's CES convention in Las Vegas, the Xoom will cost between $600 and $800, depending on whether you opt for a 2-year contract with Verizon.

Motorola, of course, faces a market already dominated by Apple, which recently revealed that it sold 7.33 million iPad units during the holiday season alone. Meanwhile, Apple will almost certainly unveil an iPad 2 next week. A rejiggered iPad could reinvigorate interest in the Apple device, and probably steal a good deal of thunder from upstarts such as the Motorola Xoom tablet. And from the Samsung Galaxy Tab. And from the BlackBerry PlayBook.
