Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha on Wednesday confirmed pricing for the company’s upcoming Honeycomb tablet, the Motorola XOOM. Speaking to the press at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Jha stated that a version of the XOOM with cellular data connectivity will be available from Verizon Wireless for an unsubsidized price of $799. Earlier rumors suggested that Best Buy would offer the XOOM for the same price. The tablet will have the option to connect to Verizon’s 3G data network — and later this year, its 4G LTE network as well — for a monthly fee, but buyers will not have to sign a service contract with the carrier. Jha also stated that the Wi-Fi-only version of the Motorola XOOM will be available for around $600.
