Motorola Xoom may arrive in Best Buy on Feb. 24

In a Facebook posting that has since been pulled, the Grand Rapids South Best Buy announced four products to be released in February, among them the Motorola Xoom tablet on the 24th.

The launch date has yet to be officially announced, but it’s pretty safe to assume Best Buy has their own sale date set. That said, this new date is a week after a previously leaked date, so who knows? Still, looks like it’s safe to assume we’ll see the Xoom in stores sometime in February.

Also on the list is the HTC Thunderbolt and Samsung Presto “Hotspot”, which Slashgear believes is the SCH-LC11 mobile hotspot. Both these products run on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Since all the products are from Verizon, it’s likely the list Best Buy GRS posted was straight from their VZW new product list.
